Research shows almost %70 of all water consumption consists of watering. In our country, %75 of yearly usable 110 billions cubic meters of water is used in agriculture. The coming years will lead to more consumption with greater needs to feed the growing population.
The ignorant and primitive watering not only wastes water but also damages the soil. Drip irrigation prevents both unnecessary use of water and soil damage while providing the plants with just enough water.
Natural Enemy of Salt
Watering done in random intervals in hot climates with little rain to improve the production, leave the salt in the field. It will also raise the sub surface water levels and the salt they contain. When the waters vaporise through the intense heat, leaves the salt in the soil. Salt prevents efficient production. Even good quality water leaves 1.1 tonnes of salt in 10 acres of land in such conditions.
