A surge irrigation system includes a main inlet pipe configured to be coupled to a source of pressurized water. The main inlet pipe is coupled to a flow meter for the purpose of improving furrow irrigation. The system further includes two independent, valve-actuated and controlled pipe arm segments extending from the main inlet pipe. One of the pipe arm segments extends toward a first irrigation zone in a field, and the second pipe arm segment extends toward the second irrigation zone in the field. The system further includes water advance sensors for the purpose of improving a surge irrigation program for an improved autonomous and parameter-setting operation. Additionally the controller, sensor and interface use radio communication.
