Drip Irrigation is a micro-irrigation system that has the potential to save nutrients and water by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of plants, either from above the soil surface or buried below the surface.

Drip Irrigation (New Technology)

The goal is to place water directly into the root zone and minimize evaporation. Drip irrigation systems distribute water through a network of valves, pipes, tubing, and emitters. It reduces water loss by up to 60 percent. Flow rate needs to be adjusted so there is no flooding or runoff.
