About this title


The requirements in agricultural production, the environmental protection and the water resources optimization have made farmers modernize irrigation systems. One aspect of these modernizations is the installation of drip irrigation systems. However, the new environmental regulations and awareness throughout the world have triggered the search for new products and processes that are compatible with the environment. This study presents the results of a research project using the low pressure drip system for small areas and investigating the possibilities and limitations in developing degradable materials for using as drip tapes. Since the irrigation tapes are usually removed at the end of the crop season, especially for the vegetables, it would be desirable to use biodegradable irrigation drip lines that would allow roto-tilling or ploughing of these materials after the end of the cultivation season, without the need to remove the laterals. For developing and managing micro irrigation systems, series of studies were done to identify the properties of some bioplastic materials and the possibility to use them as biodegradable drip tubes.
