In recent years, the drip irrigation is being adopted in India and elsewhere in the world for efficient irrigation. Drip irrigation is better than the older flood and recent sprinkler irrigation. Even with drip irrigation, lot of water is wasted due to improper management and practically the crops either over irrigated or under irrigated. The yield drops in both cases and water and electricity wasted due to over irrigation. Drip irrigation also requires continuous monitoring and management of irrigation (motor on/off and open/close of irrigation valves). One person is required at the farm/site to manage the irrigation. Practically it is impossible to attend to the irrigation needs in time and results in over/under irrigation.
