For the case of southern Tunisia, the introduction of the sprinkler and the drop systems for the main cultivations systems which is the date palm, remains definitely a technical challenge and requires relevant installation costs.

The test in pilot farms of four variants (Two of sprinkler systems and two for drop systems) of PVC pipes using simply the water borne delivered discharge (less than 0.5 m) for the irrigation of the palm date every two weeks revealed conclusive results in term of water saving, water productivity and irrigation material reduction costs aspects. The implementation of those irrigation techniques could be supervised by the local agriculture development organization in collaboration with the farmers community often organized in common interest groups.
