Irrigation System

Saves BOTH Precious Time and Water!

The irrigation system is a prerequisite in providing water to plants especially when the climate change is not in our favor. An irrigation system is essentially an artificial means of providing water directly to plants or indirectly via land or soil and comes in different types namely sprinkler system, drip irrigation system, landscape irrigation system and lawn drip irrigation system in complementing various geographical surface or regions. It is imperative in growing crops, landscape maintenance as well as the vegetation of disturbed soils in dry areas and during periods of inadequate rainfall.

An irrigation system must include a water source, a destination, and a conveyance system.  A pond, reservoir or a lake are generally a more preferred choice of water containment, the reason being that it can be more conveniently managed to retain the desired amount of water as compared to the other alternatives. Streams especially, can be uncertain in terms of volume during the rainy season and also during drought periods. This inconsistency in climate will negatively impact the agricultural crops if a proper irrigation system is not put in place. Rainy season might lead to flooding of the crops or plants in which case too much water will cause more harm than good. On the other hand, during dry spell season, the evaporation rate is higher and so without a proper irrigation system of water leading directly to the root, water is not efficiently utilized. You end up spend more money watering the plant and yet might lose out on getting bountiful crops.

Drip irrigation

Basically, there are two types of agricultural irrigation systems; flood and sprinkler. Both are different in their characteristics and functionalities. Flood irrigation system involves releasing water over the surface of the land to flood the fields. This method, of course, is the oldest form of irrigation and can be used for any crops. Ideally, this irrigation method should be implemented in a slightly sloped and yet level enough to enable even distribution of water over the surface. The major disadvantage of this method is that the water can soak below the roots and be wasted. Too much of water can also affect the health of crops. On average, the efficiency of this method is around 45 to 55 percent.

Sprinkler irrigation utilizes pipes and sprinkler heads to distribute water to the plants. Three common types of sprinkler system are solid set, continuous move, and periodic move. This irrigation method is usually more effective than flood irrigation system. The only downside, however, would be that it is more susceptible to windy conditions.


A systematic and effective irrigation system ensures that your crops and plants stay bountiful throughout the year without negatively impacted by climate change. Give us a call now and let us help you in reaping the most out of your harvest.
