Importance and Benefits of Irrigation System In Our Life
Most conscious homeowners carefully choose proper irrigation systems in their home lawn these days
as it increases aesthetics and curb appeal. Moreover, irrigation systems are a great way to help in the
growth of agricultural crops, maintenance of landscapes, etc to avoid frequent irrigation repair.
If you find any changes with your irrigation system whether a constant dripping from control valves, high
or low-pressure problems, parched patches, and soaked spots. These are clear signals that you need
immediate irrigation repair.
Moreover, efficient irrigation systems lead to worry-free watering and eventually you get more leisure
time for fishing and other activities as well.
Therefore, in this article, we will learn the importance, benefits, and maintenance of an irrigation system
in our life-
Importance of irrigation system
 Mostly agricultural production and productivity level depend on the availability of the water.
Therefore, eventually, it means irrigation facilities need properconsideration.
 A Proper irrigation system helps in economicdevelopment.
 Irrigation waters improve soil fertility, increases the water content, and also helps in dissolving
nutrients.
 The Irrigation system will help in germination, nutrient utilization, seedbed preparation, yield,
and quality, root growth, and plantgrowth.
 The irrigation system plays a great protective role during periods of famines anddroughts.
 Irrigation is essential for general growth of plants.
 In a year, multiple cropping is surely possible through an irrigationsystem.
 More and more land cultivation is possible through the proper irrigation system.
 The productivity level of irrigated land is much higher than in un-irrigated land.
 The moisture content of the soil is ensured through the irrigation system.
Benefits of Irrigation System
 The Irrigation system reduces the growth of weed and drip irrigation systems are quite efficient.
 Installing a proper irrigation system will help to improve plant growth over time.
 With the use of an irrigation system, it will preserve soil structure while helping the plants to
retain nutrients.
 A proper irrigation system helps to save more water and time.
Now that you are aware of the importance and benefits lets learn about the maintenance of your
irrigation system for a smooth flow of work every day-
 Cut down weeds: About 20 to 40 percent fungus, weeds, and disease can easily get stuck up and
affect the health of the plant.
 Vary watering: Basically, plants and grass in landscaped beds require different amounts of
water. Separate water zones need time and area.
 Water early and late: According to the experts, it’s important to water the plant early in the
morning and late at night as the temperature is lower and evaporation is also reduced.
 Conserve water: It’s highly important to conserve water by adding mulch to beds keeps the
ground’s moisture build and helps in maintaining the irrigationsystem.
 Redirect the rain: Homeowners are highly suggested to acquire knowledge of exactly how much
water to use daily and often to water the plants and trees especially during differentseasons.
 Measurement: Tuna cans are the best way to use to measure water you can also use measuring
cups or flat pan and then turn on the sprinkler or irrigation system. You must wait for at least
half an hour and with the use of ruler measure the collected water and also calculate the exact
time it takes to acquire an inch of waterdaily.
