Micro–irrigation, also called localized irrigation, low volume irrigation, low-flow irrigation, or trickle irrigation, is an irrigation method with lower pressure and flow than a traditional sprinkler system. Low volume irrigation is used in agriculture for row crops, orchards, and vineyards.
Micro irrigation system is characterized as the regular utilization of little amounts of water straight forwardly above and beneath the soil surface; typically as discrete drops, consistent drops or small streams through nozzles put along a water conveyance line.
Advantages of micro irrigation:
Micro irrigation has acquired consideration during late years as a result of its capability to build yields and abatement water, manure, and work necessities whenever oversaw appropriately. Micro irrigation systems can apply water and compost straight forwardly to singular plants or trees, diminishing the wetted region by wetting just a small amount of the dirt surface; consequently, water is applied straightforwardly to the root zone.
- Micro irrigation is a low pressing factor, low volume water system framework appropriate for exceptional yield esteem harvests, for example, leafy foods crops.
- Whenever oversaw appropriately, micro irrigation can build yields and lessening water, manure and work prerequisites.
- Micro irrigation applies the water just to the plant’s root zone and saves water as a result of the high application productivity and high water circulation consistency.
- Micro irrigation can inundate slanting or unpredictably formed land zones that can’t be flood watered.
- Any water-dissolvable manure might be infused through a micro irrigation framework.
