Drip Irrigation FAQs
What is Drip Irrigation?
Drip irrigation is a plant watering method that delivers water directly to the root zone of the plant. Sometimes also called trickle irrigation, this system is an eco-friendly way to help plants grow. In addition to conserving water, a drip irrigation system saves you time, money and labor when watering a garden. It also reduces weed growth, waste runoff and water leaching. Drip plant watering even helps prevent plant disease since there's less water contact.
How Does Drip Irrigation Work?
A basic drip system has tubing or lines with emitters that are placed just above the soil surface and then connected to a water source, The emitters will slowly release water, "dripping" it onto the soil near the plant roots. Additional lines can be added to water sub-rows. This setup allows you to keep moisture levels at optimal levels for each type of plant, improving productivity and overall quality. The slower water flow also means more is absorbed into the soil.
How Much Water Does Drip Irrigation Save?
According to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a drip irrigation kit can reduce water consumption by up to 60% versus traditional methods such as sprinklers. These savings come from more efficient water use and less waste via runoff or evaporation. Since you're delivering the proper amount of water to the plants, drip systems can also produce up to 90% better crop yield. Further advancements are being made for even more water savings.
