How Drip Irrigation Works
Water is pumped to the farm and reaches plants through drip emitters. Water flows to the mainline and reaches to the feeder lines and then to the drip lines and released to plant plants through drip emitters or holes. Valves can be opened or closed to control or enable water to flow into a section of a farm. A farm can be irrigated in sections with the help of control valves.
Why Drip Irrigation?
Drip irrigation is the best irrigation method. Minimum water is used for irrigation thus excess water loss is avoided. Drip irrigation is also compatible to most types of land terrains since water flows through gravity or force of pumps. Water is evenly distributed to the crops on the farm.
