The project was held in Palma Tica´s company. The same was to design a mobile irrigation system capable of irrigating land with steep slopes and with a maximum height of 30 m above the reference level. The first thing we did was make a topographic survey to have quotas in the area, see obstacles, draw the pipe line and have a better idea of the behavior of the irrigation system, the topographic survey was done with GPS, GPS submeter and Laser distancemeters. Subsequently, soil samples were taken in the field to bring them to the lab and get data about permanent wilting point, field capacity and soil structure and specific weight. Also, the infiltration speed was measured with infiltrometer. With the information from the physical characteristic of soil and climatic condition was done the agronomic design. With the Agronomic design completed was carried out hydraulic design for a mobile irrigation. With the design is achieved irrigate 110 000 m2 in 22 hours; with a forward speed of 40 km / h and an irrigation frequency of 7 days for get a irrigation depth of 22, 86 mm. In addition, dealing 443 meters of pipe of 127 mm of diameter and a pump of 82 CV to make it work throughout the system.
