Cost estimate for a typical orchard was made for low-head gravity-flow bubbler irrigation system. This was compared with micro-spray sprinkler system that is commonly used for tree crops. Bubbler system has a definite advantage in cost saving in addition to reduced water usage and an equal or better water distribution uniformity.
