Abstract:

The conventional method of Tomato cultivation under furrow irrigation needs a paradigm shift towards modern irrigation systems due to water scarcity. Drip irrigation method distributes water to the field using the pipe network and transforms it from the pipe network of the plant by emitters. In spite of the advantages of drip irrigation method, the traditional network of drip irrigation method has many problems. Hydraulic design seems to be only one of the minor factors of the evaluation of overall uniformity of a micro-irrigation system. However hydraulic performance of drip irrigation needs to be gauged in terms of water distribution uniformity, emitter operating pressure head, distribution uniformity of water soluble fertilizer and Economics of drip systems.
