Irrigation applied underground eliminates surface water evaporation. Compared to evaporation as high as 45% with sprinkler irrigation (Measurements of evaporation during sprinkler irrigation, University of Southern Queensland, 2012)
By applying water directly to the plants no water is being applied to the interrow. Less water in the inter rows or on the surface means fewer weeds, and fewer costs (herbicides) to eradicate the weeds.
When a drip lateral is buried 30 cm, roots need to ‘chase’ the water. This leads to a very healthy root structure that penetrates deep into the ground as opposed to concentrating on the surface.
