And compared with the sprinkler irrigation method
According to a comparative design, about 70 hectares of a forage maize field were irrigated with drip irrigation and 150 hectares irrigated with sprinkler irrigation.
In the drip method, about 5,000 cubic meters of water were used, while in the rainwater method, water consumption reached 7,500 cubic meters.
In addition, the amount of dry matter per cubic meter of drop method was 4 kg per cubic meter of water, but 1.6 kg in the rain method.
