We stock high quality 16mm driplines with emmiter spacing of 15cm, 20cm and 30cm with single or double emitter spacing.
Drip irrigation means timely application of water to the plant root zone, thereby saving water, time and energy while maximizing your yield. Farmers in this region can comfortably use drip irrigation to irrigate their vegetables, fruit trees such as bananas, avocadoes, passion fruits, maize e.t.c. Crops under drip irrigation mature faster, are uniform and of top quality. Farmers also save on labour costs as compared with other methods of irrigation.
VEGETABLE DRIP IRRIGATION
This is a flexible system and can be wound through flower beds or borders, around trees or shrubs, run down rows or raised vegetable beds and can be used in container planting. It is an inexpensive and effective method for watering a variety of plants and gardens.
BUTTON DRIP IRRIGATION
Drip or trickle irrigation is a localized irrigation method that applies water in very low flow rates. Drip irrigation is suitable for most soil types and most types of topography. It is very well suited to situations of limited water supplies or high water costs.
Drip Irrigation for passion fruits, avocadoes, coffee, macademia and other fruit trees
We use button drippers to irrigate fruit trees. This is because the trees are widely spaced and use of normal driplines will not be effective. The drippers are put exactly where the crop is, ensuring no wastage of water and nutrients.
The drippers are either the adjustable type, emitting 0-70L per hour or pressure compensated, which can either emit 4L, 8L or 16L per hour.
