Background

Immediate improvement in water quality runoff will be expected in comparison to furrow irrigation. Significant reduction in water applied and available runoff, and a reduction in nutrient and herbicide rates applied through the closed system.

The low cost drip system is expected to perform comparably to a more expensive drip irrigation systems within water quality gains and only need minor increases in management.
