Abstract

The energy required to operate drip irrigation water pumps for crop production can be measured in terms of fuel consumption or electric power usage. Energy usage depends on the amount of irrigation water, irrigation time and consequently on the fuel consumption or electric power required for each pumping unit of water. While appreciating the drip irrigation concept for the Sri Lankan context, this publication aims to prove hydropower is a solution to meet the energy need of drip irrigation systems to be designed for country’s future development.
