Supply water directly to plant roots with pitcher and drip irrigation

As our news story from Senegal pointed out, drip irrigation systems minimize the amount of water needed to irrigate crops by delivering water directly to the roots. In this week’s script, the host describes the function of drip irrigation systems (also known as trickle irrigation) in further detail. The host discusses pitcher irrigation as well (also known as clay pot irrigation), another technique that delivers water directly to plant roots. You may wish to assist farmers in your listening audience by finding out where they can obtain the materials necessary for pitcher or drip irrigation systems.
