Write A Practical Report On The Drip Irrigation Or Sprinkler

A final report on the assessment and development of best management practices for subsurface drip irrigation systems has been completed by PIs Drew W. Johnson and George F. Vance. This system reduces water contact with crops, leading to less favorable conditions for diseases. Properly designed, maintained, and operated, it can be an asset for small farms, generating profit. Drip irrigation involves tubing with emitters placed along plants to slowly release water at the root zone. This method, also known as microirrigation, is planned and includes all necessary facilities. The market for drip irrigation is expected to grow at a rapid pace, with a projected value of $8.3 billion by 2027. Latest research shows comprehensive studies on key players and market growth, with the global market valued at $4.63 billion in 2018 and estimated to reach $9.37 billion by 2026. A group is currently working on developing low-cost and low-power drip irrigation systems to help small farmers and protect the environment.

Title: Practical Report on Drip Irrigation System

  1. Aim: The aim of this practical report is to assess the performance of a drip irrigation system in comparison to a sprinkler irrigation system. The report will focus on the uniformity of water distribution and its impact on crop yield, as well as the cost analysis of the irrigation systems in the local region.

  2. Method/Procedure:

  • The experiment involved setting up both drip irrigation and sprinkler irrigation systems in designated plots.
  • Flow meters and catch cans were placed at various locations to measure the uniformity of water distribution for both systems.
  • Crop performance and yield were monitored throughout the irrigation season.
  1. Results of the exercise/Calculations:
  • The drip irrigation system showed a higher level of uniformity in water distribution compared to the sprinkler system, as evidenced by the catch can measurements.
  • Crop yield and performance data were collected and analyzed for both systems.
  1. Discussion of Results: The discussion will focus on the impact of the irrigation system on the crop's value and yield based on the uniformity data. It will also elaborate on the cost-effectiveness of the irrigation systems in the local region when compared to other methods.

  2. Conclusion: The conclusion will summarize the findings of the experiment, including the effect of the irrigation system on crop yield, the uniformity content, and the cost analysis. It will also provide recommendations for optimizing irrigation scheduling based on the results.

Additional Points for Discussion:

  1. Key Aspects for Increasing Crop Value and Yield:
  • The drip irrigation system, with its higher uniformity of water distribution, can lead to improved crop health, reduced water usage, and enhanced yield quality, ultimately increasing the value of the crop.
  1. Cost of Irrigation in the Region:
  • The cost of water, equipment, maintenance, and energy consumption for both drip and sprinkler irrigation systems will be calculated to provide a comprehensive understanding of the cost of irrigation in the local region.
  1. Comparison with Other Irrigation Methods:
  • The cost analysis of drip and sprinkler irrigation systems will be compared with traditional irrigation methods or other installed systems to determine their cost-effectiveness and long-term benefits.

This report aims to provide a comprehensive assessment of drip irrigation systems, including their impact on crop value and yield, uniformity content, and cost-effectiveness.
