Drip irrigation is a form of irrigation that saves water and fertilizer by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of many different plants, either onto the soil surface or directly onto the foundation zone, through a network of valves, pipes, tubing, and emitters. It also gives farmers an efficient and simple way to operate their farms.
Key Benefits of Service
- Drip irrigation systems are very different from pop-up sprinkler systems. Rather than spraying wide areas, they generally utilize point emitters to deliver desired volumes of water to particular locations at or near plant root zones. Water drips slowly from emitters either onto the soil surface or below ground. Less water is lost to wind and evaporation as a result, and weeds can also be reduced.
- Drip irrigation systems are very water-efficient and customizable for even different plants in a small area. Water and nutrients are delivered across the field in pipes called ‘dripper lines’ featuring smaller units known as ‘drippers’.
- Each dripper emits drops containing water and fertilizers, resulting in the uniform application of water and nutrients directly to each plant’s root zone, across an entire field. Just like people, plants like to get their water and nutrients in a balanced way.
- Drip irrigation applies to water and nutrients frequently and in small doses, ensuring optimal growing conditions that help produce the highest yields possible. The working module of the drip irrigation is the pump station that takes water from the source and provides the right pressure for delivery into the pipe system. Control valves control the discharge and pressure in the entire system.
- If you want to gain efficiency in water application, then installing the Drip Irrigation system is a must.
- Soil erosion and weed growth are reduced.
- Water distribution can be controlled.
- Drip Irrigation also confirms zero labor cost.
- It is a low-cost process that can also be done in low water pressure.
- Field leveling is done by installing this type of irrigation system.
- The filtration system cleans the water. Common types of filters include screen filters and graded sand filters which remove fine material suspended in the water. Fertilizer tanks/venturi slowly add a measured dose of fertilizer into the water during irrigation. This is one of the major advantages of drip irrigation over other methods.Mainlines, sub mains, and laterals supply water from the control head into the fields.
- They are usually made from PVC or polyethylene hose and should be buried below ground because they easily degrade when exposed to direct solar radiation. Emitters or drippers are devices used to control the discharge of water from the lateral to the plants. They are usually spaced more than 1 meter apart with one or more emitters used for a single plant. For row crops more closely spaced emitters may be used to wet a strip of soil.
- Many different emitter designs have been produced in recent years. The basis of design is to produce an emitter that will provide a specified constant discharge that does not vary much with pressure changes, and does not block easily. Drip irrigation is not a substitute for other proven methods of irrigation. It is just another way of applying water.

Planting & Removal Charges
Within a your budget you can freshen up your plant with a few key upgrades that will increase your home’s curb appeal. A new gravel driveway or concrete walkway can make your home look like new. Small budgets are good for breaking up a larger project into manageable chunks, so you might splurge for a nice walkway this year and deal with the driveway later.
