Different methods of Irrigation



Surface Irrigation
In this method water is distributed over the soil surface by gravity flow.  It is best suited for flat land slopes and to fine textured soil types which promote the lateral spread of water down the furrow and across the basin.

Subsurface Irrigation
In this method water is distributed below the soil and depends on the depth of the water table.  When the water level is well below the surface trickle / drip irrigation can be done


Drip Irrigation
In this method of micro irrigation water is supplied through emitters to the soil. The discharge rate in emitters is low so this irrigation can be used on all soil types

Sprinkler Irrigation
In this method water is sprayed and sprinkled through the air in rain like drops.  Both Permanent / Movable sprinklers are available and can be installed upon requirement.
