Although the population of Egypt is over ninety million, It is unable to fulfill the food requirements as enough amount of water is not available for sufficient production of crops. In order for recognizing and implementing the steps to minimize water usage and improving the crop production techniques, this research is carried out into the farm fields of farmers in 2009 and 2010, 2010 and 2011 to evaluate the effectiveness and economy feasibility of the sprinkler irrigation system for the growth of the wheat crops.  In the National Researches Centers and Development Station in Nubaria, two field studies were performed. Under sprinkler irrigation method the water related characteristics of the crops like wheat have been readied in the region. Treatments composed of two irrigation sprinklers,  set sprinklers (S1) and the lateral hand motions (S2), and 3 levels of irrigation (IF1: only once in a whole week; IF2: only twice in the whole week, IF3: three times in a whole week). Also, the highest amount of net profit occurred under strong defined sprinkler irrigation scheme and irrigation size. The suggested sprinkler method and irrigation schedule for each case for winter wheat in the Nubaria is solid set sprinkler (S1) and three-fold irrigations per week (IF3). The method of sprinkler irrigation is most general method of adaptation of irrigation water that normally falls as rainfall. It is then pumped into the air and irrigated by spray heads to the whole surface of the soil for the purpose it is that it get split up so that the waters tiny drops get directly on the ground.
