The current drought conditions have prompted many farmers and gardeners to use drip irrigation and to educate others about drip irrigation offering a much more efficient alternative because it uses 30-50% less water
Willits, CA (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
Drip Irrigation has long been in widespread use in the harsh, dry conditions of the Israeli Desert, and currently is extensively utilized in agriculture around the globe. Drip irrigation is believed by many to be one of the world’s most valued developments in agriculture. The emitters and emitter tubing used in drip irrigation are specifically designed to allow for a more targeted and controlled delivery of water, offering deeper penetration with a fraction of the water loss due to evaporation or wind drift.
A large population in the Middle East, Africa, Australia, and the United States, to name just a few, use modern drip irrigation. Extremely efficient, it is particularly suited to areas where water is scarce; such as the current situation in the United States where over 50% of the country is currently experiencing the worst drought conditions since 1956.
Under such extreme conditions, the use of flood irrigation, large scale sprinklers, or broadcast spray emitters are unavailable, ineffective, or highly expensive, and waste precious water resources. The current drought conditions have prompted many farmers and gardeners to use drip irrigation and to educate others about drip irrigation offering a much more efficient alternative because it uses 30-50% less water.
