Drip Irrigation System

This is a Project. It is dated 2006. Its medium is plastic tubing and tank.

IDE’s low-cost Drip Irrigation System allows farmers to start small and scale up as their finances and acreage grow. The kits are significantly less expensive than conventional drip systems used on commercial farms. Drip irrigation reduces water use and increases yields. There is improved crop quality, crop-per-drop efficiency, and cultivation of high-value marketable crops. The kits, operating under very little water pressure, are typically used in the production of fruit and vegetable crops, but have also been used for maize, wheat, and cotton.
