Efficiency from water saving technology for plants in Vietnamese agriculture





Many provinces in the South of our country have two distinct rainy and sunny seasons in the year. Therefore, in the dry season, the shortage of irrigation water in agriculture often occurs, affecting the harvest. Since applying Water saving technology for plants, this situation began to have more positive changes. In the following article, let’s learn about this new watering technology and the effects it has brought to our country’s agriculture in recent years.

What do you know about water saving technology for plants in our country today?

  1. How is water saving technology applied to plants in Vietnam?

Most of the economical watering techniques in our country are imported from Israel – a country known as turning the desert into golden land. In particular, the three most commonly applied water-saving techniques for plants in our country today are drip irrigation, local sprinkler irrigation and local underground irrigation. As follows:

Drip irrigation technology

  • Is a method of watering plants that provide water with low pressure, slow speed to help water slowly seep into the soil to help plants absorb continuously.
  • Drip irrigation model is a closed system that includes many components such as water source, pump, water filter, water pipe, drip irrigation nozzle, timer, automatic irrigation control, … are mounted. together
  • Principle of operation: water is taken by the pump from the water source and pushed up the pipe to the irrigation nozzle and out at the sprinkler to the plants according to the principle of slow drip.
  • Advantages: providing water for plants continuously, low water volume is not afraid to wash away soil nutrients, saving water, labor, bringing water precisely to the plant location without wasting
  • Cons: investment capital is quite high, if not regularly monitored can occur blockage of pipes due to unclean water sources.

Local sprinkler irrigation technology

  • Is a method of watering plants to supply water on a large scale with moderate pressure, usually arranged under large trees, widely applied to industrial crops and fruit trees.
  • The model of local sprinkler irrigation technology is a system consisting of water source components, a pump, a water filter, a pressure gauge, an air release valve, a injector, a water pipe, and a sprinkler with the ability to Irrigation radius adjustment
  • Working principle: the pump pushes water up from the water source through the water pipe to supply water to plants on a large scale through the sprinkler, the water pressure is too great, so use the air release valve to avoid the tube explosion.
  • Advantages: suitable for industrial crops, fruit trees with large roots are supplied with water, accurately watered around the canopy to avoid wasting water, washing salt accumulated on tree roots between seasons, limiting root damage caused by salt
  • Disadvantages: high initial investment capital, need for a stable water reserve, high evaporation capacity in the dry season

Local underground watering technology

  • Is a method of watering similar to drip irrigation but brings water deep into the soil through a filter layer near the base of the plant
  • The local groundwater irrigation technology model is a system consisting of water source components, pumps, water pipes and discharge heads placed underground to each plant.
  • Working principle: water is brought up from the water source into the pipe thanks to the pressure from the pump to the discharge points placed underground in the form of drops.
  • Advantages: suitable for frequently dry soils, the amount of water is precisely supplied to each tree to support the best growth and development, without wasting water. On the other hand, underground pipes are not affected by weather and pests, and are durable
  • Disadvantage: high initial investment, if not regularly monitored, it can cause blockage of pipes which is difficult to handle

In general, all three of these popular water-saving irrigation technologies require high investment capital but bring many advantages related to economic performance.

  1. Efficiency from water saving technology for plants

Although each method of water-saving irrigation for plants with high technology has its own advantages and disadvantages, we cannot deny the benefits that people receive:

  • Irrigation solutions that save at least 50% of irrigation water compared to traditional agricultural irrigation methods
  • Maximum saving of labor required for each batch of pipe pulling and watering
  • Meet the water needs of plants continuously with the right amount of phfu, stimulate the best growth and development to improve productivity and quality of agricultural products.
  • Suitable for most soil types and different crops
  • ….

So compared to the initial investment is quite high, but the effect received is extremely worth it. You can consult and design your own automatic irrigation system to save costs. In order to design the most accurate and standard, you need to perform the automatic irrigation system calculation formulas.
