Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock MAIL, in fiscal year 1400 through Horticulture Value Chain Development Project or "HVCDSP" builds forty-five drip irrigation systems in six provinces in order to better manage the water on the farm and with the help of the Asian Development Bank, "ADB"
These drip irrigation systems are being built in Maidan Wardak, Logar, Khost, Kunar, Laghman and Nangarhar provinces.
Drip irrigation is a type of micro-irrigation system that has the potential to save water and nutrients by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of plants, either from above the soil surface or buried below the surface. The goal is to place water directly into the root zone and minimize evaporation. Drip irrigation systems distribute water through a network of valves, pipes, tubing, and emitters. Drip irrigation system can be more efficient than other types of irrigation systems, such as surface irrigation or sprinkler irrigation.
