Container Grown

Nurturing consistency

Nelson R2000 Windfighter sprinkler irrigating a nursery container yard
The Rotator® Sprinkler family provides high system uniformity and proven reliability, without the issues of riser vibration or brass theft.

In container yards, irrigation system uniformity, reliability, and performance are essential for success.

Can yard irrigation provides unique challenges compared to other types of agricultural irrigation systems. To penetrate the canopy of varied plant materials and reach the pots evenly requires a stream and droplet that is equal to the task.

Nelson's Rotator® line of sprinklers allow can yard irrigation systems to reach every container through virtually any foliage type or plant density. Rotators also have a wide variety of nozzle and plate combinations that can operate over a wide pressure range, all with the uniformity you need.

The Nelson R2000 and R10 are available in a variety of stream trajectories for when you need to stay above the container, as well as below the canopy of closely spaced trees in #7 and larger containers. The R2000LP and R33LP operate at low pressures and provide large droplets that do an excellent job penetrating the canopy to provide adequate water to each container.

Nelson R33 Sprinkler system irrigating a nursery container yard
This orange Road Guard converts Rotators into a part-circle sprinkler.

Meet your layout needs.

  • Nelson Rotator sprinklers have none of the riser vibration of an impact sprinkler, and are easily placed on tall risers over your plants.
  • Detachable risers can help in areas where plant material is staged for loading.
  • Nelson Spinners have very soft droplets, and can be used close to sensitive plants indoors, while providing a wide wetted radius and high uniformity.
  • PC-R2000WF/LP Part Circle Rotators allow you to irrigate defined areas more efficiently with highly engineered Road Guards that deflect the stream back over the plant material where you want it.
