Design and Construction of Combined Drip and Sprinkler Irrigation Prototype for Instructional Delivery in Agricultural Education in College of Education, Zing, Taraba State, Nigeria (Published)
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.
