Bamboo Drip Irrigation System
One of the ancient irrigation systems is bamboo drip irrigation. The process involves transferring spring water using bamboo pipes. The technique uses the very simple phenomenon of gravity, which causes water to move from higher to lower.
An important feature of this irrigation system is that it can check the direction of the flow of water by changing the arrangement of bamboo pipes. The water easily reaches hundreds of meters through the pipe and reaches the target plant in the form of droplets. This type of irrigation system is so old and has many advantages which include:
- Almost no leakage
- Saves water and improves crop yield
- Use of natural and inexpensive ingredients
