  1. How is drip irrigation technology applied in our country?

Few people know that the origin of drip irrigation technology in our country today is from Israel – a country known as turning the desert into a golden land. This is a country with a harsh climate and very little water, so this is a solution to help them save water in farming.

Introduced to our country, the drip irrigation model brings high efficiency, so it gradually becomes much more popular. Not only for watering, drip irrigation technology is also used for fertilizing to help spread nutrients evenly for plants with a moderate amount of fertilizer or water.

The drip irrigation system model is like a network, consisting of many parts:

  • Water source: is a reservoir or pond that provides water for the drip irrigation system
  • Pump: support to increase water pressure for the whole system
  • Timer for automatic irrigation control: help users turn on, off, timer control automatic irrigation according to needs
  • Water filter: helps to filter out the dirt or garbage in the water source, avoid getting stuck in the dripper, causing damage or stopping irrigation.
  • Water pipes: transfer water from one location to another to provide uniform water for plants
  • Drip irrigation: Provide irrigation water to the plants in the garden with just the right amount of drip
  • Connecting pipes: connecting water pipes

All these parts are linked together to form a complete system and operate flexibly under the control from the grower. The water pipeline will be installed under the ground and directed directly to the plants, the distance between the ends of the pipes depends on the needs of each different plant.

  • Suitable for most soils and different plants
  • Delivers water precisely to the plant location, does not waste water, does not create conditions for weeds around the plant to grow.

Defect

  • Pipe blockage may occur, causing system damage if not promptly intervened
  • The cost of materials to install a drip irrigation system is quite high, requiring investment capital
  • Installation is quite complicated
