Part of: Selection of Irrigation Methods for Agriculture


Drip/micro irrigation (also previously referred to as trickle irrigation) refers to a variety of irrigation methods in which water is delivered directly to small areas adjacent to individual plants through emitters or applicators placed along a watery delivery line. In an orchard or vineyard there will typically be one or more emission devices per tree. This chapter examines drip/micro irrigation.
