Drip irrigation is a method of watering crops in which water is delivered directly to the root zone of the plant, drop by drop. It is a low-volume irrigation method that minimizes water loss from evaporation, runoff, and deep percolation, and is highly efficient in terms of water use. Drip irrigation systems consist of a network of tubes, pipes, and emitters that are placed near the plant roots. The water is delivered to the plants in a slow, controlled manner, and can be adjusted to meet the specific needs of different crops. Drip irrigation is widely used in arid and semi-arid regions, as well as in high-value crops where water use efficiency and precision is critical, such as vineyards and orchards.
