Sprinkler Irrigation System for Coconut with
Intercrop(Fodder, Banana,Green Grams)
Now-a-days Indian Farmers using Drip Irrigation System for Coconut Farms. This
method of Irrigation covers only 10 Feet Diameter around the tree. But Coconut Tree
roots spread around all areas which is not receiving sufficient water in all day,
during Summer even it unable to absorb minerals and fertilizers, Which leads to poor
in coconut production. So we must wet(Irrigate) all areas of coconut farms to get
proper functioning of roots and better yield.
Sprinkler Irrigation System gives complete coverage of water in
all areas. which helps perfect functioning of roots to absorb all manurs. So
cultivation of Intercrops like Banana trees, Grams, Animal Fodder is also possible
to do. This type of Irrigation system creates micro climate which is favorable for
earthworm growth helps for natural organic farming activities.
How ever we use Sprinkler instead of Rainguns. Because Rain Gun
water jet hidden by the trees which affects the uniform distribution of water
