With the development of modern agriculture, the traditional flooding irrigation is out of time. Because the flooding irrigation needs bulk of water. What’s more, it cause much of land watered though it doesn’t need. So, it wastes much of water. Therefore, it was eliminated because the water resource is reducing day by day. For modern agriculture, the drop irrigation becomes more and more popular.
What is drop irrigation
Drop irrigation is to drip the water into the earth around the roots evenly and slowly. The flow is small and with the water drip slowly, it can greatly reduce the evaporation of water.
However, if the drop irrigation time is too long, there will be osmosis under the roots. Therefore, most of the operation of drop irrigation is controlled by computers. The manual operation is also exist, but less. Drop irrigation has low water pressure and it suitable the area with different plants. Because it can irrigate each piece of plant respectively. But it needs pressure compensation in a sloping field. We can control the valves in different areas with the computer. It’s important for drop irrigation to adjust the water pressure and eliminate the impurity from the water.
For such purpose, you need a drip tape. You should set it under the mulching film to avoid the growth of algae. It can also protect the drip tape from the aging of sunlight.
What’s the advantage of drop irrigation
First of all, it save water. Such irrigation method avoids the waste of bulk water. Because it just drips water around the roof, it can save 40%-80% water according to the practical application. So as the fertilizer. Second it save labor cost. You only need to a computer to control the whole system without hire lots of people doing the irrigation work. Last, with this advanced irrigation method, the crops can increase 10%-30%.
