Drip irrigation is a method that aims to provide only as much water to plants as they need, and only where they need it, thus reducing losses from run-off and evaporation. Drip irrigation is demonstrated off-site in a farmer’s field in Tripeni village. Easy drip irrigation is also known as trickle irrigation or micro-irrigation, it enhances water use efficiency in row crops (vegetables, tea, coffee, and other soft fruits) and vine crops where one or more emitters can be provided for each plant. It can minimize leaching and fertilizer and nutrient loss. It can also maintain moisture within the root zone of the plant.
