Irrigation of olive trees

| /

Irrigation is an important aspect of olive growing. Olives are plants that require an optimal dose of water in order to remain healthy and productive. Although irrigation is necessary, it can only be used if it is applied correctly. If too much or too little is irrigated, it can cause problems with growth and yield.

Olive trees can be irrigated in several ways, and choosing the right way depends on available resources and needs. The most common methods of irrigation are sprinkler irrigation, drip irrigation and sprinkler irrigation.

Drip irrigation is a method used to ensure that plants get enough water without losing water through wastage. This is achieved by placing the pipe under the ground and installing the pulsator at the optimal height and giving the plants the exact amount of water they need. This method can help reduce the need for irrigation and increase irrigation efficiency.

Drip irrigation is one of the most common methods of watering olive trees, because it brings water directly to the roots of the plants. This can help reduce water wastage and help keep tree leaves dry, which can help prevent the spread of disease. The disadvantage of this system is the low uniformity of water distribution over the total cutting zone

Irrigation enables:

* Increasing the yield of olives
* Reducing the risk of pests and diseases
* Improvement of olive quality
* Increasing the efficiency of irrigation

If you grow olives in an area that is prone to drought, or if you are concerned about the effects of climate change on your water supply, then investing in a drip irrigation system may be a wise decision.
