Drip Irrigation Design Guide


Water conservation is a key benefit of Jain Irrigation’s low volume irrigation systems. Water, our most precious natural resource, can be utilized with unmatched efficiency in a properly designed, installed and maintained low volume system. No other type of irrigation offers better plant health, better soil conditioning or better utilization of resources than a low volume system.

Jain Irrigation’s low volume irrigation systems are designed to supply water directly to plants, based on their individual watering requirements. These systems can utilize 70% less water than traditional irrigation systems by applying water at very low application rates with minimal loss from wind, evaporation, sloped terrain and other environmental factors.

Along with the benefits of carefully directed water application, low volume irrigation systems promote plant health by applying water directly to the root zone, the area from which plants draw the majority of their usable nutrients; a well developed root zone results in more stable, vigorous plants. Low volume irrigation keeps water away from high-traffic pedestrian areas, lessening the possibility of slippage or accidents, and it keeps water off fences, buildings or hardscapes which can be damaged by traditional irrigation systems.

Resource conservation, plant health, landscape aesthetics are all good reasons to consider Jain’s low volume irrigation.
