Micro / Drip Irrigation
In Micro / Drip Irrigation, water and fertilizers are applied through a network of UV resistant pipes and calibrated emitters (dripper, Micro sprinklers), at a defined flow rate, close to plant roots on plant requirement basis. Therefore, the soil near the roots is always kept at "field capacity" which enables the crop to easily capture required water and nutrients, and grow healthier.
Since water is applied so close to the plants that it reaches only the area of the soil necessary to feed the roots Micro / Drip Irrigation, unlike other traditional methods, prevent the moisturizing of whole soil profile resulting in saving in water leaching and evaporation.
Whereas in traditional methods of irrigation water is applied in large quantities but at long intervals , resulting in a cycle of plant stress from soil saturation to wilting point , in Micro / Drip irrigation water will be applied in small quantity on a high frequency basis (daily) to maintain optimal moisture level in soil in which the plant can flourish.
Suitable for irrigation of row crops like Sugarcane, Cotton, Banana, Strawberry, Vegetables, Spices and Floriculture. Also recommended to use in Greenhouses and Nurseries, used for widely spaced horticultural plants like Mango, Citrus, Guava, Apple etc.
