In drip irrigation, water flows through a filter into special drip pipes, with emitters located at different spacing. Water is discharged through the emitters directly into the soil near the plants through a special slow-release device. If properly designed, installed, and managed, drip irrigation may help achieve water conservation by reducing evaporation and deep drainage as compared to other types of irrigation such as flood or overhead sprinklers since water can be more precisely applied to the plant roots.
