The purpose of the study was to design and construct a drip and sprinkler combined prototype irrigation for instructional delivery in College of Education, Zing, Taraba State, Nigeria. The need for a facility such as this cannot be over-emphasized as it will enhance academic achievement of students of agriculture. The design was based on combined drip and sprinkler irrigation methods for teaching and learning. The study presents a novel combined irrigation system that is suitable for instructional delivery in institutions of learning. The result shows that the discharge of individual emitters/drippers and sprinklers delivered water adequately, wetting and sprinkling water, by the combined methods to the desired areas. The study recommends, among others, that such a novel irrigation facility should be established in institutions of learning, in Nigeria, to enhance instructional delivery in agricultural education.
