Drip irrigation is a technique in which water flows through special small diameter plastic pipes fitted with outlets called emitters or drippers spaced at the same spacing to provide moisture around the roots of plants.
Water is distributed through the emitters directly into the soil near the roots through a special slow-release device.
1.Increase in yield up to 230 %.
2.Saves water up to 70% compared to flood irrigation. More land can be irrigated with the water thus saved.
3.Early maturity results in higher and faster returns on investment.
4.Fertilizer use efficiency increases by 30%.
