Drip irrigation

Drip water system includes dripping water onto the dirt at low rates (2-20 litres/hour) from an arrangement of little breadth plastic channels fitted with outlets called emitters or drippers. Water is connected near plants with the goal that exclusive piece of the dirt in which the roots develop is wetted, dissimilar to surface and sprinkler water system, which includes wetting the entire soil profile. With drip water system, water applications are more regular (normally every 1-3 days) than with different techniques and this gives an ideal high dampness level in the dirt in which plants can prosper.

Drip water system framework releases water to the crop utilizing a system of mainlines, sub-mains and sidelong lines with outflow focuses dispersed along their lengths. Each dripper/emitters, opening supplies a deliberate, decisively controlled uniform use of water, supplements, and other required development substances straightforwardly into the root zone of the plant.

Water and supplements enter the dirt from the emitters, moving into the root zone of the plants through the joined powers of gravity and capillary. Along these lines, the plant's withdrawal of dampness and supplements are recharged very quickly, guaranteeing that the plant never experiences water stress, subsequently improving quality, its capacity to accomplish ideal development and high return.

Major Components of Drip Irrigation System

1) Pump station takes water from the source and gives the correct weight to conveyance into the pipe framework.

2) Control valves control the release and weight in the whole framework.

3) Filtration framework cleans the water. Basic sorts of the channel incorporate screen filters and graded sand filters which expel fine material suspended in the water.

4) Compost tank gradually includes a deliberate measurement of manure into the water, while irrigating fields. This is one of the significant points of interest of drip water system over different techniques.

5) Mainlines, sub mains and laterals supply water from the control head into the fields. They are normally manufactured using PVC or polyethene hose and ought to be covered in soil because they deteriorate chemically under the exposure of solar radiation. Parallel funnels are normally 13-32 mm width.

6) Emitters or drippers are gadgets used to control the release of water from the horizontal to the plants. They are normally dispersed more than 1 meter separated with at least one Emitters utilized for a solitary plant/tree.A wide range of Emitters outlines has been created as of late. The premise of configuration is to deliver a Emitters which will give a predefined steady release which does not differ much with water pressure changes and does not obstruct easily.

Not at all like sprinkler water system, drip water system just wets some portion of the dirt root zone. This might be as, low as 30% of the volume of soil wetted by alternate techniques. The wetting designs which create from dripping water onto the dirt rely upon release and soil class.

Just piece of the root zone is wetted it is as yet essential to meet the full water needs of the cultivated plants. It is here and there suspected that drip water system spares water by decreasing the sum utilized by the harvest. This is not valid. Yield water utilize is not changed by the strategy for applying water. Harvests simply require the appropriate sum of water for good development.

Drip water system is not a substitute for other demonstrated strategies for the water system. It is simply one more method for supplying water. It is most appropriate to regions where water quantity is negligible, where water or workers are costly, or where high esteem crops require more number of water applications.

Potential points of interest of Drip Irrigation 

Enhanced water utility
Water necessities can be decreased with drip water system over conventional one in spite of the fact that the water savings, obviously, rely upon the product, soil, ecological conditions and the achievable on-cultivate water system proficiency. Essential purposes behind water savings incorporate accuracy water system, diminished surface dissipation, diminished water system spillover from the field and controlled profound permeation misfortunes beneath soil root zone.

Better plant development and yield 
Under drip water system, soil water content in the dynamic segment of the plant root zone remains genuinely steady since water can be provided gradually at a controlled rate. Here, the aggregate soil water potential, soil air circulation, fewer plant diseases and confined plant root development.

Increased effectiveness of fertilizer utilization
Drip water system offers significant adaptability in fertilization. Continuous application of plant supplements along with the irrigation water appears to be beneficial for higher crop yield.

Reduced weeds
Since weed invasion relies upon soil dampness content, drip water system diminishes weed invasion because of restricted wetting of root zone as it were. Critical diminishment in weed biomass was seen in drip water system plot when contrasted with surface flooded plots

Saving of labour

Drip water system can be effortlessly automated where labour is constrained or costly. fewer labour expenses and more prominent productivity is accomplished.

Huge trees, for example, Mango, Jack-fruit, Jamun, and Amla ought to be planted 36 feet separated.
Guava, Chikku, Lemon and Pomegranate saplings can be planted in the middle of the mango plants at a separation of 18 feet.

Why pests attack your crops and How to stop it?

Disease pathogens and pests are always present. Yet not all plants come down with diseases or are attacked by pests. This tells us that diseases and pests are not unavoidable and that insects and plant pathogens are not the real cause of the problem.
Pests and diseases are nature’s garbage collectors !!!
Pests and diseases are merely there to eat or infect an unhealthy plant which is weakened. It is easy to see this as a nuisance but from our perspective, they perform an important ecological role. These unhealthy or defective plants would not be optimal for consumption of humans or animals and therefore these pests and diseases are doing us a favour by preventing us from eating inferior produce. However modern agriculture and horticulture have meant we can now simply kill off the pests and diseases using chemicals and eat the inferior produce anyway.
Insect pests and diseases cannot successfully attack healthy, vigorously growing plants because, like humans and animals, healthy plants ca…

Natural farming: Using locally available resources as inputs and not purchasing inputs from outside for farming is Natural farming ... Masanobu Fukuoka of Japan is famous worldwide for Natural farming with his book " The one straw revolution " .... but there are persons in several countries including our country who have been practising their own methods ... they may not have got noticed ... Zero Budget Natural Farming ( ZBNF) is one of the methods in Natural Farming. ZBNF name is coined and implemented by Sri. Subhash Palekar...
