Water distribution 10 hours after 1 hour of watering.
Given the same amount of water, sub-surface drip irrigation covers 46% larger wetted volume of soil than a surface drip irrigation system. This decreases the saturation point of the soil, which not only leaves room for air, but also improves the capillary movement of water and decreases the water lost to deep percolation”.
Water and nutrients delivered directly to the root zone promote healthy plant growth and reduce plant stress.
Healthier, Better Quality Crops
Soil and foliage are kept dry, reducing fungal diseases caused by surface and overhead irrigation.
