5 Important Benefits of Drip Irrigation

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Arizona Resource Realty BR518926000

Drip irrigation is a system developed that involves the slow release of water to each plant through small plastic tubes.


Efficiency Plants and humans are not so much different. You wouldn’t want to eat a week’s worth of food and water in one day, the same thing for plants. They need water and nutrients in a balanced way as you tailor your system to your crops’ needs. The system will be more efficient as it uses 30-50% less water than traditional methods. It’ll help you place the precise amount of water where the plants need it and prevent overwatering, saving you money and producing more and better crops to harvest. 


It can be used just about anywhere

This system will work just anywhere. Drip irrigation is suitable for most soils. Clay soils will need water to be applied slowly to avoid pondering on the surface. On the other hand, sandy soils will need a higher emitter discharge rate to ensure adequate lateral wetting of the soil. Any farmable soil can benefit from this system so you can utilize more of your land.


Time and energy saving

Depending on your system, you can water more plants simultaneously. A drip irrigation system will eliminate hours of your time hand-watering your plants. Setting timers to your irrigation system will cost you lesser time on your crops. You can automate it so you’ll have more time for your business and family.



No saturation and better soil ventilation 

As the water emits from below directly to the roots, sunlight can go directly and freely to the plants, and the oxygenation process will be better for the soil and the plant. 


No salinity caused by excessive fertilizer application and crop protection

Excessive application of both water and fertilizer will be a lesser issue. You can now easily monitor the water your plants consume and put the fertilizer freely and easily than before. As an added benefit, a drip irrigation system will further prevent the growth and spread of fungus and diseases to your crops. Crop protection will be easier to install and maintain, too, as you don’t have to worry anymore about spacing to water your plants.
