Drip irrigation, also known as trickle irrigation or micro irrigation or localized irrigation, is an irrigation method that saves water and fertilizer by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of plants, either onto the soil surface or directly onto the root zone, through a network of valves, pipes, tubing, and emitters. It is done through narrow tubes that deliver water directly to the base of the plant.
Benefits Of Drip Irrigation:
Reduces leaching of water and nutrients below the root zone
Prevents disease by minimizing water contact with the leaves, stems, and fruit of plants.
Allows the rows between plants to remain dry, improving access and reducing weed growth.
