The main direction of the economic and social development of the Republic of Azerbaijan is the intensification of agricultural production. Irrigation is a powerful means of intensifying agricultural production in the context of its specialization. In areas with insufficient moisture (especially typical for mountainous areas), irrigation is one of the decisive factors in growing high and stable crop yields. This requires the development of new technical solutions and the introduction of automated systems for low-intensity irrigation of agricultural crops that meet the requirements of ecology and environmental protection of their habitat, which makes it possible to improve the ecological state of irrigated lands and reduce water consumption per unit of production and increasing the yield of individual crops in irrigated fields.
