Books for irriagation

Can anyone recommend some books about irrigation systems? I don't do irrigation but I'd like to at least learn about it.

Thanks

Both Richard B. Choate and my old mentor, Virgil Young wrote excellent books. Google them, a tad dated, but the basics are there.

The irrigation design manual by Rainbird is very good also. They walk you through a residential design step by step.

Another one I like is "The Complete Irrigation Workbook" by Larry keesen. Includes alot of real field experiences.
