I don't know that this helps you much but the nurseries and tree farms in this area use overhead irrigation with impact sprinklers fed from a pond. They grade and setup drainage so that all the runoff goes back to the pond and do most of their watering off of that reclaimed water and what is added by rainfall (in most years) with very little supplemental water added to the pond from the well.

I know this seems counter to doing everything on drip but since the majority of the water is reclaimed and the property is setup to funnel all rainfall runoff into the pond, it works out to be a very efficient setup.
