Can anyone recommend a sprinkler that really works?

I have a small 1 1/2 acre farm with a drip system set up for my raised
beds but this time of year I am trying to get cover crops into my field
crop areas (my goal is always mid-September) and then hope for rain.
Trouble is, the seed can then sit there for weeks in dusty soil (no rain

since June) waiting for the rains to arrive.  I understand that
inoculated legumes should be irrigated immediately after planting (if
nature doesn't cooperate) and I would love to find a sprinkler that can
do the job efficiently, I have tried many different sprinklers over the
past number of years and they either break after a short time (including

two different Gardena sprinklers) or they do not water evenly.

Any suggestions, along with sources for puchasing such sprinklers would
be greatly appreciated!
