The main problems of the bubbler irrigation applied in field crops are small water discharge, and big transaction area of furrow and border. After the bubbler irrigation of winter wheat and maize crops planted in furrow with film mulching on ridge was assembled, the moving ability of water flow was increased, the number of flow regulators was reduced, irrigation quality was improved, and the uniformity of soil moisture was raised, which provided the possibility of bubbler irrigation in field crops. By adopting the cultivation method of furrow planting with film mulching on ridge combined with bubbler irrigation, the utilization efficiency of rainfall was increased, the quantity of irrigation water, irrigation frequency and soil evaporation were reduced. Moreover, water consumption in field and irrigation norm were saved by 28.3 and 28-47%, respectively, compared with the border irrigation. In addition, crop yield was increased significantly.
