Clay Pot Irrigation

Clay pot irrigation is an ancient irrigation method practiced today in Africa, Asia, India, South America and in recent years it has conquered Europe, too. Locally manufactured clay pots are buried up to their necks in the soil, filled with water, and seeds or seedlings are planted around them. The clay pots release the water slowly into the soil and the plants are constantly irrigated with just the right amount of water to grow.
