A New Solution for Smarter Irrigation from New Mexico State University

A new irrigation technique, subsurface systems, may be the solution to wasted water and high water costs when it comes to irrigation efficiency for turfgrass.

Subsurface irrigation limits irrigation to the exactly the right area that needs to be irrigated by using buried drip lines to water the area. Subsurface systems have been used in agriculture for decades, but New Mexico State University College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences decided to test the system with turfgrass. This will help conserve water and save costs for places like athletic fields and golf courses.
