Drip irrigation system is an important innovation in agriculture, after the invention of the impact sprinkler in the 1930s.  It replaced flood irrigation. Drip irrigation or subsurface drip irrigation (SDI) uses permanently or temporarily buried dripper line or drip tape located at or below the plant roots. It is critical in areas where water supplies are limited. If recycled water is used spray technology is not permitted to avoid direct human exposure. Careful study of all the relevant factors including land topography, soil, water, crop and agro-climatic conditions is needed to determine the most suitable drip irrigation system for the location  (World Plumbing Council Working Group 2008).
