Most irrigation systems must be
tailored for an individual field and no
single irrigation method is best for all
situations. Each method has advantages
and disadvantages that make it
better suited for one set of conditions
over another. When improving or

surface or drip systems are often compared.

a wider range of condition than are
either drip or surface systems; however,
any one of them may he used under
some conditions
