Drip irrigation is a game changing technology, which involves low-pressure distribution of small, precise and uniform amounts of water and nutrients directly to the plant’s root zone- essentially, irrigating the plant and the soil. The technology is a dripping system which fully replace flood irrigation methods. The technology has been designed and optimized to utilize water as well as fertilizer judiciously to meet up the plants and crops requirement. Drip delivers higher yield while using fewer natural resources and consumption of water, energy and also saves time.
Drip irrigation provides the lowest level of emission per irrigated hectare and affordable for the vast majority of crops. The technology is a sustainable system of irrigation for farmers, allowing smallholders to large- scale agricultural production.
