A comparison between drip, sprinkler and furrow irrigation systems on plant growth and salt distribution



A comparison between drip, sprinkler and furrow irrigation systems on plant growth and salt distribution



Egyptian Journal of Soil Science 19(1): 31-39



In a field trial with a locally made system, drip irrigation caused earlier flowering, earlier setting, better and higher rates of watermelon vegetative growth than sprinkler and furrow irrigation. The drip irrigated strip had the best production in tons per feddan and in kg per cubic meter of irrigation water, and had the least nematode harmful effects. No grasses or weeds grew between the plants and rows due to low moisture conditions.
