Fertigation & chemigation is gaining popularity due to increasing water scaricity, high crop productivity, and less labor cost involved. The drip irrigation systems led the market because of its features which include water saving, increase in yield, and less problem of clogging of drippers due to sediment-laden water. The growing demand for quality crop production and continuous decreasing water level boasted the market in the Asia-Pacific region.
