Abstract

The irrigator feeds water into the structure of the soil in metered quantities sufficient to achieve the required humidity of the bed under cultivation. The water is distributed at a depth corresponding approximately to the plant root length and is dispersed in regularly spaced zones. The system may comprise a network of flexible pipes (11,13,16) distributing water to regularly spaced points on a horizontal plane beneath the plant roots, dispersal being effected by porous pipe lengths (18) with closed ends. The main (11) may be fed from a tank of which the floor is at the same level and the feed may be controlled by a valve activated by humidity sensors.
