The Greenhouse Venture Drip Irrigation System is a micro-irrigation system that aims to save water and retain soil nutrients by allowing water to slowly drip to the roots of plants. The use of the Drip Irrigation System also aims to minimize fertilizer and nutrient loss as the water from the system is locally applied, which reduces leaching.

The Drip Irrigation System is designed to allow water to drip directly to the root of plants, thereby minimizing soil erosion and weed growth. Water is evenly distributed throughout the farm via the nozzles of the system. Also, the system helps to ensure water is applied efficiently, which contributes to the responsible consumption of water. The water distribution can be controlled by regulating the valves and drippers. Fertigation can be included in the irrigation system, with minimal fertilizer waste.
