- Surface irrigation: In this method, one has to rely on gravitational power to push the water from one location to another. In such extreme cases where gravitational power cannot push the water into the required location, pumps can be used as an alternative.
- Seepage Irrigation: It is a type of irrigation, where crops get water from underground resources. These types of irrigation can be expected in such places where there high water table exists.
- Sprinkler Irrigation: It is a type of irrigation where the water is passed through a series of pipes and then sprinkled over the crops. These sprinklers will be made rotational so that equal amount of water can be sprayed.
- Drip irrigation system: It is a typical irrigation system, where as the name suggests water falls on the crop drop by drop over the roots directly.
The ancient method of soil probe and feel method to know the moisture content in the soil have been replaced by the new technology called as the soil moisture meter. This instrument determines the moisture level in the soil and hence helps us in efficiently managing water
