Abstract: Two low cost drip irrigation systems are presented. Even though the uniformity of these systems is not as high as the conventional drip systems, the initial and operating costs of the systems are considerably lower. The systems are labor intensive and may require frequent inspection and corrections which is not normally a problem for the countries of Brazil and Columbia where these systems are being used. The effect of these adopted drip systems on crop yield is also discussed.
