diesel injection/ direct and indirect

Just wondering if any of you know the difference between indirect and direct diesel fuel injection... All the older tractors that I know of and all the over say 50hp modern tractors are direct injection into the cylinder. I noticed that the compacts and some of the larger compacts say they are indirect injection.. Does this mean the the injectors are located in the low psi area of the intake manifold like a fuel injected gas car?? I wouldn't think that that would work well with diesel fuel,,, its making my brain a bit numb thinking how this could be...
