Drip irrigation can be a transformational technology for smallholder producers. It has many advantages over rainfed production and traditional furrow irrigation methods, such as increased on-farm yields, year-round production, efficient use of scarce water resources, and reductions in waterlogging, salinization, and pest and disease pressures. The commercial potential for the private sector to expand this technology to smallholder farmers is enormous, given the sheer volume of potential customers at the smallholder level, and the area of arable land yet to be irrigated.
