    Comparison between pivot and drip irrigation in corn cultivation

    By Miriam Pitzalis

    Updated Aug 19  

    The main problem concerning corn cultivation is water stress: the most critical phases that suffer from water shortages, which can lead to significant production losses, are from the emission of the plume to flowering and the ripening stage. In order to obtain high yields, it is necessary to satisfy the evapotranspiration demand of the crop, which is between 0. 16 and 0... In practice, these figures will be influenced by various factors such as the yield and market price of corn, the extent of cultivation and the effective duration of the system, which depends on the proper design and maintenance... In general, the drip system is suitable for small surfaces, while the central pivot is much more efficient in extensive corn crops, and when the yield and market price are rather low...
