Subsurface drip irrigation (SDI) although a much smaller fraction of the microirrigated land area than surface drip irrigation is growing at a much faster rate, and is the subject of considerable research and educational efforts in the United States. This paper will discuss the growth in SDI, highlight some of the research and extension efforts, and point out some of the challenges to SDI adoption and some of the future opportunities for SDI.
