Sprinkler irrigation. Sprinklers irrigating a field of crops, in this case a field of potatoes, Solanum sp., with mountains in the background. The sprinklers are attached to a metal frame which can be moved around a central point. Crops need large amounts of water to grow properly. A lack of water can lead to a much lower crop yield. Photographed in Colorado, USA; the Rocky Mountains are in the background.
