Drip Irrigation approach is now a longtime approach to irrigation in water scarce components however it is usually gaining value in water ample components. during this know-how, the cropped box is irrigated within the shut region of root area of crop. It reduces water loss happening via evaporation, conveyance and distribution. for this reason excessive water use potency should be completed.

It reacts as a detoxifying agent. Magnesium (Mg): The ionic form of magnesium element absorbed by the plants is Mg++. Magnesium is the major element in chlorophyll structure, which is responsible for photosynthesis process. It takes part COMPONENTS OF DRIP IRRIGATION SYSTEMS 39 in activating some enzymes that are involved in carbohydrates synthesis. It enhances the uptake and translocation of phosphate. Sulfur (S): The ionic form of this element absorbed by the plant is SO4—. Sulfur is a components in the structure of some amino acids such as cystine, cysteine and is active in protein structure.

The information on quantities of nutrients removed by crop can be used to optimize soil fertility level. Part of the nutrients removed by crop is used for vegetative growth and the rest for fruit production. It is important to have enough nutrients in the right proportions in the soil to supply crop needs during the entire growing season. Vegetable crops differ widely in their macronutrient requirements and in the pattern of uptake over the growing season. In general, N, P, and K uptake follow the same course as the rate of crop biomass accumulation.

To handle large flow rate, they can be installed in batteries. The disk filters have much more higher dirt retention capacity than screen filters with the same specifications. 8). 3. Filter characteristics and evaluation The field evaluation of drip irrigation system includes a determination of filtration efficiency and pressure differential across the filter. The effectiveness of the filtration system can also be indirectly assessed by evaluating the degree of emitter plugging. The filtration efficiency (Fr) of a filtration system is estimated by the following formula where, Sout = the concentration of suspended solids (mg/l) in filter outlet, and Sin = the concentration of suspended solids (mg/l) in filter inlet.
