Drip Irrigation–A Smart Choice

Consider Drip Irrigation.
Studies show that drip irrigation systems use 30 – 50% less water than conventional watering methods, such as sprinklers. Drip irrigation is the slow, precise application of water and nutrients directly to the plant root zone in a predetermined pattern. Drip irrigation helps maintain the root zone at ideal moisture level, encouraging the formation of deeper roots and more abundant foliage, at the same time saving water through reduced evaporation and runoff.

  • Improves growth – Smaller amounts of water applied over a longer amount of time provide ideal growing conditions. Drip irrigation extends watering times for plants, and prevents soil erosion and nutrient runoff. Also, because the flow is continuous, water penetrates deeply into the soil to get well down into the root zone.
  • Discourages weeds – Water is only delivered where it’s needed.
  • Saves time – Setting and moving sprinklers is not required. A timer can be added to the system for automatic watering.
  • Helps control fungal diseases, which grow quickly under moist conditions.
  • Adaptable – A drip irrigation system can be modified easily to adjust to the changing needs of the seasons

Properly designed, installed, and managed, drip irrigation may help achieve water conservation by reducing evaporation and deep drainage when compared to other types of irrigation such as flood or overhead sprinklers since water can be more precisely applied to the plant roots. In addition, drip can eliminate many diseases that are spread through water contact with the foliage.

Because of the way the water is applied in a drip system, traditional surface applications of timed-release fertilizer are sometimes ineffective, so drip systems often mix liquid fertilizer with the irrigation water. This is called fertigation. The chemicals may be added constantly whenever the system is irrigating or at intervals. Fertilizer savings of up to 95% are being reported from recent university field tests using drip fertigation and slow water delivery as compared to timed-release and irrigation by micro spray heads.

Many mosquito problems in your neighborhood are likely to come from water-filled containers that you, the resident, can help to eliminate. All mosquitoes require water in which to breed.

Be sure to drain any standing water around your house. Even the smallest of containers that can collect water can breed hundreds to thousands of mosquitoes.They don’t need much water to lay their eggs. ( bottles, buckets, barrels, overturned trash can lids, etc.)

Top Tips

• Dispose of any tires.Tires can breed thousands of mosquitoes.

• Drill holes in the bottom of recycling containers.

• Clear roof gutters of debris.

• Clean pet water dishes regularly.

• Check and empty children’s toys.

• Repair leaky outdoor faucets.

• Change the water in bird baths at least once a week.

• Canoes and other boats should be turned over.

• Avoid water collecting on pool covers.

• Empty water collected in tarps around the yard or on woodpiles.

• Plug tree holes.
