I am an IT guy trying to understand farming, this is my take on this topic and would like to know if i understand it right
People mostly prefer drip because of the minimal use of water. But not retaining any moisture in places between trees where there is no water supply on a drip irrigated land kill all the organic matter and eventually making that places not better enough for plant life in future
Though these use up more water, it provides moisture to most part of the land and help retain organic matter.
please share your views…
