a method of watering using low pressure so the water is distributed in a slow, consistent manner. A water conservation tool as compared to flood irrigation where you might let the hose run to fill tree wells.
is an irrigation method that applies water slowly to the roots of plants, by depositing the water either on the soil surface or directly to the root zone. Drip irrigation usually employs devices called emitters, which emit the water in a slow stream, and may also use devices called micro-sprinklers, which spray water in a small area.
Using small tubes or pipes to deliver small amounts of irrigation water to the roots of plants.
Uses pipe or tubing perforated with very small holes to deliver water one drop at a time directly to the soil around each plant.
the process of applying a calculated amount of water slowly and evenly over the plant's root area.
Compare? Method in which water drips to the soil from perforated tubes or emitters.
The application of small quantities of water directly to the root zone through various types of delivery systems on a daily basis.
Supplying irrigation water through tubes that literally drip water onto the soil at the base of each plant.
Similar to a moisture sensor irrigation system, this system uses water efficiently for irrigation by allowing water to drip out of the irrigation pipes all along the installed pipes directly into the soil. Pipes can be installed either above or below ground (See Water Resource Report).
A trickle irrigation system. Highly recommended for soaking the soil well. Used where water sources are limited.
An irrigation method involving small pipes placed at the base of plants delivering water slowly to the plant roots.
Particularly valuable form of irrigation in areas plagued by drought. Drip irrigation delivers water slowly and directly to the root systems of plants, allowing water to be absorbed effectively by roots --and soil particles. It also helps prevent loss of water to wind and sun, as well as to the subsoil where it can't be reached by plants.
(crop science) A method used to place irrigation water near plants' roots through pipes or tubes. This reduces water evaporation and runoff, but may not be cost effective for all crops.
Water slowly released from micron-size holes (too small for soil to clog) in hoses; supplies plant roots with steady moisture.
A method of microirrigation wherein water is applied to the soil surface as drops or small streams through emitters. Discharge rates are generally less than 8 Liters/hour (2 gal/hour) for single-outlet emitters and 12 Liters/hour (3 gal/hour) per meter for line-source emitters ASAE.)
The practice of spraying water directly on the base of plants so that less water is needed to help them grow
An irrigation system that allows passage of water through emitters placed right underneath the plant's root under slow pressure
a method of irrigation using the slow application of water under low pressure through tube openings or attached devices just above, at or below the soil surface.
Localized drop-by-drop application of water that uses pipes, tubes, filters, emitters and ancillary devices to deliver water to specific sites at a point or grid on the soil surface.
An efficient and targeted form of irrigation in which water is delivered in drops directly to the plants roots at specific rates. Jump to Top
above ground, low-pressure watering system with flexible tubing that releases small, steady amounts of water through emitters placed near individual plants.
A network of small hoses with many drip heads that provide water directly and efficiently to plant roots.
a type of irrigation system by which each plant is fed individually with a small drip tube and the flow is regulated by an emitter commonly used in most hydroponic systems
An irrigation system that uses low volumes of low-pressure water emitted drip by drip at the base of a plant. This is the most economical and efficient way to water.
Drip Irrigation is the broad term used to describe all of the techniques used to apply a small amount of water directly at the point of use. Drip irrigation was originally developed in desert areas to conserve water. The advantage over sprinklers is the reduction of water wasted to evaporation and applied to areas away from the desired plants. On a windy day with low humidity, most of a sprinkler system's water may evaporate. Also called micro irrigation.
The act of spraying water directly on the root of plants, so less water is needed to help them grow
The slow application of water, usually drop by drop, to the soil.
A method of irrigation that delivers a measured amount of water through an emitter located near each plant to be irrigated at frequent intervals. Drip irrigation can take place above or below ground and is one of the most efficient methods of irrigating.
The slow application (low volume) of water, usually under low pressure, to the specific root zone area of the plant material.
Gathering customer information slowly over time, rather than overwhelming customers, prospects and visitors with long surveys they might be inclined not to fill out, and using each piece to build on every interaction.
a common irrigation method where pipes or tubes filled with water slowly drip onto crops. Drip irrigation is a low-pressure method of irrigation and less water is lost to evaporation than high-pressure spray irrigation.
Any type of irrigation system that applies water to the soil very slowly through tubes/tapes either above or below the soil surface (= trickle irrigation)
Drip irrigation, also known as trickle irrigation or microirrigation is an irrigation method that applies water slowly to the roots of plants, by depositing the water either on the soil surface or directly to the root zone, through a network of valves, pipes, tubing, and emitters. The goal is to minimize water usage, fertilizer. Drip irrigation may also use devices called micro-spray heads, which spray water in a small area, instead of emitters.
