The ASCE On-Farm Committee has recently completed a draft of a manual (Bliesner et al, 1998) on "Selection of Irrigation Methods for Agriculture."  One of the chapters describes drip/micro irrigation methods.  Numerous variations of drip/micro designs are discussed, along with advantages and disadvantages.  This paper provides an overview of some aspects of that chapter.
