To some, there is a distinct difference between a drip irrigation system and a micro-irrigation system. They would categorize all low-pressure methods of delivering water to the soil by any type of a “drip” method, whether by porous pipe or emitter tubes, as drip irrigation. This would place any low-pressure spray or misting applications in the micro-irrigation category. Others would refer to all of these methods as drip-irrigation, while even another, possibly more cutting edge, group would argue that drip irrigation is an out-dated term, and all forms should be called micro-irrigation. I would argue that the term is irrelevant as long as you acquaint yourself with all of the possible options and the benefits of each.
One of the greatest advantages of any type of drip irrigation system is its high level of efficiency. With the move towards “green” consciousness, water conservation has become more popular across America, not just in the more arid regions. At an efficiency rating of over 90%, compared to a typical sprinkler system's rating of around 75%, a drip system will save a significant amount of water over time.
