trickle irrigation—Advantages of drip irrigation technology
What is drip irrigation
Trickle irrigation is an irrigation form that is installed on a capillary tube to drip water droplets evenly and slowly into the soil near the roots of plants. Under drip irrigation conditions, in addition to the saturated soil moisture under the dripper, the soil moisture in other areas is still in a partially saturated state, so drip irrigation system can minimize water loss.
drip irrigation can save water
Drip irrigation is local irrigation, with small irrigation flow, no surface runoff, and no deep infiltration. In addition. Irrigation water only wets the soil in the root zone of the crop, which can prevent the growth of weeds. Drip irrigation is local irrigation, with small irrigation flow, no surface runoff, and no deep infiltration. Smart farming can provide timely and appropriate water supply according to the needs of crop growth. The utilization rate of water in irrigated agriculture is higher.
Improve fertilizer utilization
trickle irrigation can achieve the integration of drip irrigation with water and fertilizer. By injecting fertilizer into the water, it can provide enough water and nutrients. The utilization rate of fertilizer is greatly improved, and the amount of chemical fertilizer is saved.
Reduce pests and environmental pollution
The ground evaporation in the irrigated area is also small, The permeability of the soil root system is good. By injecting fertilizer into the water, sufficient water and nutrients can be provided. which reduces the humidity of the environment, greatly reduces the frequency of pests and diseases in the protected area, and reduces the amount of pesticide application.
Increase production and income
Drip irrigation can provide proper amount of water and fertilizer to the root zone of crops in time, without causing soil compaction, and providing good conditions for crop growth, thereby helping to increase production and improve product quality.
