According to the report, the MENA drip irrigation systems market is segmented into the application sectors of agriculture, public and residential gardens, and others such as nurseries and greenhouses.
0% of the MENA drip irrigation systems market was held by the agricultural segment in 2013.
The incompetent use of irrigation water resources is one of the main factors that restrict the sustainable development of irrigated agriculture in Uzbekistan.
The Government of Uzbekistan in June 2013 issued a resolution on measures for the successful execution and financing of drip irrigation systems and other water saving irrigation technologies in Uzbekistan.
The extra setup of the sensors required in the field may be of concern, but the sensors can be left in the field (at location) between irrigations
and quickly removed for any cultural or machining processes, as mentioned above.
An alternative to this is to have farmers limit their irrigation
and sell or lease only the rights to their unused water, rather than sell the land as well.
In this study, traps reduced sediment in surface runoff after the first irrigation
but not subsequent irrigations

SYSTEM MARKET REVENUE, BY TYPES, 2009 - 2016 ($MILLION)
Although soil moisture measurements can be used as the data feedback necessary to automate irrigation
scheduling, a drawback is that most sensors under row crops must be removed every season to harvest, work the ground, and replant.
The field data indicated that small applications of water per irrigation
and relatively uniform distribution of irrigations
over time, coupled with natural subsurface drainage, prevented ground-water intrusion into the root zone.

Systems in Various
Globally, the micro irrigation
system market is dominated by sprinkler irrigation
systems, accounting for over 72% of the total micro irrigation
system demand in 2010.
