Recommended for first time users and growers, the lighter weight per coil, thin walled drip tape is ideal for irrigation of vegetable crops and flower production at a lower cost. Drip tape is a flat tape with drip emitters or outlets in a predetermined spacing. The drip tape expands when filled with water and disperses the water through the preset outlets. The drip tape is ideal for crops or sites where total saturation coverage is desired along the drip tape path.
A Cv value of +/- 2% allows for higher operating pressures with higher uniformity and reliability
Lower operating pressure used with drip tape means reduced energy needs
Resistant to chemicals and fertilizers commonly used in agriculture and landscapes
Used for above or below ground installation
Using drip tape below surface allows for field operations such as harvesting to continue during irrigation time because the areas between the rows remain dry, resulting in better weed control and lower production costs.
