Getting water deeper into the soil is required for longer intervals between irrigation. Because of the soil's natural infiltration rate, this can require long irrigation times for farmers.
This system uses very small basins to allow water to concentrate around the crops, increasing the speed a farmer can apply water and allow it to infiltrate slowly. It also reduces runoff and increases water application efficiency.
