Importance of Micro Irrigation

With the growing concern for conservation of water resources , the need of smart irrigation felt by people. In this direction concept of Micro Irrigation also known as Drip Irrigation or trickle irrigation or localized irrigation have gained importance recently.

Micro Irrigation is an targeted irrigation method that saves water and fertilizer using controlled delivery methods by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of  individual plants, either onto the soil surface or directly onto the root zone, through a network of  tubes, pipes, valves and emission devices.

Following are some advantages of using Micro-Irrigation :
  • Minimized loss of fertilizers.
  • Better water Utilization, minimizing water cost.
  • Decreased labor cost
  • Decreased power consumption
  • Lesser soil erosion
  • Even uneven fields can be efficiently irrigated
  • Lesser weed growth
