Watering the wet?

It is rainy and dreary out today, yet when driving to town we saw several fields getting watered and it got me curious as to why they’d water on a day it’s raining?  I’ve seen it happen on other rainy days too. Is it just on a timer? Is there something they are all spraying besides water?

  1. I doubt that the units are applying anything besides water. It may be automatic. With irrigation water rights it may also be a case of “use it or lose it.” I’ve given up on being amazed at lawns and landscaping I’ve seen watered come rain or shine.
