What is Drip Irrigation?
Drip irrigation is a method of controlled irrigation in which water is slowly delivered to the root system of multiple plants. Water is then either dripped onto the soil surface above the roots, or directly to the root zone. This method is often chosen over surface irrigation because it helps to reduce water evaporation and is a good use for water conservation.
Drip irrigation is one of the most efficient methods to irrigation. Sprinkler systems range near the 75 – 85 percentile of efficiency, while a well designed/installed drip system typically is closer to the 90 percentile or higher in some cases of accuracy. That means, less water is wasted and more is concentrated on the desired location for maximum return.
