A drip-irrigation system—when properly designed, maintained and operated—can be a production asset for a small farm.

Because water is applied slowly, less is lost to runoff and evaporation.Typically an isolation valve is located at the water source so the water can be shut off for repairs or shut off during the non-irrigation season.Isolation valves may also be installed anywhere on the irrigation system to allow the shut down of sections for repair, this is common on large systems where shutting down the whole system for a repair would be inconvenient.What does matter is that the need to conserve water isn’t going to go away. It means that anything that decreases our use and especially our overuse of water is going to keep getting a higher and higher profile.One of the most, if not the most, efficient means of delivering water to plant material is drip and low-volume irrigation.
