Agricultural growers need investment and cost guidelines for drip irrigation to evaluate the economics of getting crops into production as quickly as possible and to minimise economic losses from drought during the productive life of an olive orchard. The benefits of irrigation may include; better olive survival, earlier crop production, greater yields, efficient nutrient distribution, less plant stress, reduced yield variability and improved crop quality.
