SDI - Sub-Surface Drip Irrigation

Author: Kobi Shilo, Agronomist, NaanDanJain

The history of SDI in Israel started at the beginning of the 1980's. Dripline was installed in hundreds of acres around the country, for irrigation of various crops such as cotton, corn, tomatoes and other vegetables. The main reason for this approach was tight scheduling for handling large drip systems covering 150-400 Ha., where 500,000-1,000,000 meters of dripline were installed and retrieved season after season.
