Drip irrigation is a type of micro-irrigation system that has the potential to save water and nutrients by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of plants, either from above the soil surface or buried below the surface. The goal is to place water directly into the root zone and minimize evaporation.
Here this advantages of drip irrigation are:
· This system is good for a small yard or for watering individual plants.
· Drip irrigation is highly effective at supplying one-to-four gallons of water per hour directly to the soil.
· The advantage of drip irrigation over sprinklers is that there is little water loss due to evaporation or runoff.
· It’s particularly good for mulched areas because it can directly soak the soil without washing away the mulch.
