About the project Edit

A system of sound irrigation water management that helps conserve an adequate level of humidity for plants by watering the roots directly.

As competition for using freshwater intensifies for food, health and energy, it’s becoming important to address the question of diminishing water resources and the consequences of agricultural production. The project tackles the challenge that implementing an efficient management of water resources represents.

It is important for everyone to promote Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) as a strategy for efficient and sustainable water management, keeping in mind that amounts for people and nature are the limited.

The project focuses on the possibility of designing a drip irrigation system from local materials, notably used plastic packaging to resolve major problems through large-scale initiatives linked to the accessibility of equipment for small farmers.

Using this drip irrigation system allows plants to absorb almost 100% of the water supplied, whereas a traditional system stops at water infiltration and evaporation.

The proposed design is an economical and ecological system that can reduce water consumption when watering and increase opportunities to use plastic waste.
