Drip Irrigation method is now a longtime approach to irrigation in water scarce parts however it is usually gaining value in water plentiful parts. during this know-how, the cropped box is irrigated within the shut area of root sector of crop. It reduces water loss taking place via evaporation, conveyance and distribution. consequently excessive water use potency could be accomplished.

A soil test helps to estimate the nutrient supplying power of a soil and reduce guesswork in fertilizer practices. Soil testing laboratories normally suggest ways to collect the soil samples. We are concerned here with drip irrigation systems so the sampling must be done accordingly. The place and depth of soil sampling relative to the drippers is a sensitive issue of particular importance. Usually it is recommended to get samples beneath the dripper, between the drippers and between the lateral pipes.

The main elements for formulating and evaluating the fertigation program are crop nutrient requirement, nutrients availability in the soil, the volume of soil occupied by the crop rooting system and the irrigation method. Fertigation with drip irrigation, if properly managed, can reduce overall fertilizer and water application rates and minimize adverse environmental impact (Papadopoulos, 1993). 34 AN INTRODUCTION TO DRIP IRRIGATION SYSTEM In general, empirical fertilization is based on farmer’s experience and on broad recommendations.

There are currently 29 soils which are based on average soil properties published by Clapp and Hornberger (1978) and measured field soils from DRIP IRRIGATION SYSTEMS 23 Queensland in Australia published by Verburg et al. (2001). 7 l/hr for an irrigation time of 1 to 24 hours. 5 m. In Indian conditions, we normally use 4 to 8 lph emitters. Since only 29 soils have been included, you may not find your soils and hence this is a limitation. However, suppose you want to simulate wetting patter of 4 lph emitter after 12 hrs, then you can think of using emitter of 2 lph and simulate it for 24 hrs.
