Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

Irrigation is a technique which is used to provide required water to plants at regular intervals for agriculture. When there are large fields it becomes impossible for a single person to water places all by himself and since the technology has developed over the years in every sector, it has become easier for farmers to look after big farms using irrigation supplies and be carefree as the water would be supplied to the plants in intervals. It also helps in growing agricultural crops, maintenance of landscapes, and repair all the disturbed soils in the dry areas.

Larger yards take more time to water by hand, especially if you have fruits and vegetables growing. Installing any irrigation supplies can cost a fortune, but is probably a good investment for a long term to save all your crops.

  • Water and Time conserved -  Hand watering with a spray, hose, watering can etc. take a lot of time and energy. Suppliers like drip & sprinkler have specific timers that can be preset for every day at a particular time to water the plants. The timer will shut it off per the preset created and it'll stop watering the plants, and will start again when the preset has the nearly hours.

  • Preserves nutrients and the soil structure When watering the ground with wide mouth spray can or hose, it tends to supply extra water to the soil than required and the force of the water can break the soil and disturb its texture. Using either of drip or sprinkler allows smaller droplets to the soil that doesn't damage the soil and keeps it just about hydrated.

  • Gardening If you're a working person and have a garden that you adore, it may become impossible for you to take time off your schedule and water the plants at the required time as you will spend half the day at work. Using such supplies it becomes easier for you to create a preset to water your plants and no matter how long you take at the office this device will take care of your plants and land in your absence using the water present you've created on the device.

  • Preventing seeds Harsh force of wide mouth water cans can affect the seeds as the force of the water can break them and disturb their texture. Using a supplier will be more efficient as it doesn't affect the seeds and keep them fresh and allows enough intervals for it to grow and flourish in the sunlight. Seeds are very sensitive and require just about required amount of attention and care to flourish.
