farmer is to conserve the energy
The advantages of implementing drip irrigation include:
1 Minimizes the use of water, which is especially important in areas where water is scarce.
2 Soil humidity can be adjusted with plants’ needs, not too high nor too low.
3 Avoids the loss of nutrients within the soil around the plants which often happens due to excessive watering in the area. The water in the irrigation bottle can also be mixed with fertilizer which saves farmer’s energy and working hours.
4 Suppresses the growth of weeds because in drip irrigation water is given only to a certain area around the plant, therefore the growth of weeds can be minimized.
5 The very important thing for farmer is to conserve the energy and working hours while delivering water to plants.
In a large scale of drip irrigation, so much of farmer’s energy and working hours can be saved by using a big drum of water and a plastic tube to water all the plants in the area.
