Neither technology is suitable for small-scale grain production. Combine harvesters are too large and cumbersome for this scale, and would be next to impossible to maneuver in an urban farming environment.There are two kinds of irrigation technologies appropriate for treated wastewater: 1) Drip irrigation above or below ground, where the water is slowly dripped on or near the root area; and 2) Surface water irrigation where water is routed overland in a series of dug channels or furrows.

To minimize evaporation and contact with pathogens, spray irrigation should be avoided.
