Sub Surface Drip Irrigation coupled with rain harvesting
To makes the system water efficient & irrigate it with the available rain water

Solution

The key benefit of a surface micro-irrigation system is to apply 
low volumes of water and nutrients uniformly to every plant 
across the entire field. SDI delivers many advantages beyond 
surface irrigation. SUBSURFACE DRIP IRRIGATION
THE NETAFIM ADVANTAGE
Netafim USA offers the widest selection of subsurface drip 
irrigation products and superior system accessories available 
in the industry. Designed to work together, a complete system 
from Netafim USA is made of top-quality products, ensuring a 
successful SDI system. 
WATER MOVEMENT IN SDI SYSTEMS
When applied slowly to the soil at a single 
point, water moves through the soil in two 
ways: 1) downward pulled by gravity and
2) outward and upward, pulled by capillary 
action.
SDI ADVANTAGES
• Eliminates surface evaporation
• Reduces crop stress
• Extends life of irrigation system
• Prevents weed germination
• Eliminates herbicide wash-out
• Less salts from efficient irrigation
• Reduces labor requirements
• Reduces maintenance costs
• Safe and efficient delivery of fertilizers and chemicals
• Reduces animal, human or mechanical damage
This when coupled with good rain water harvesting in a pond. this can help us to irrigate effeciently.
