Drip irrigationDecember 15, 2006
Drip irrigation is a simple and water-saving way to water your plants and trees. It is also used for fields irrigation.
As you see on the picture, it is a small plastic tube pricked with smaller tubes . It spreads continusly low pressured water at the base of the tree in very small quantity. Thus no runoff, no deep percolation nor evaporation.
It also reduces water contact with crop leaves, stems, and fruit. Thus conditions may be less favorable for the onset of diseases.
