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, offering unmatched uniformity, performance and reliability for your crops
Allows use of smaller water sources; drip irrigation may require less than half of the water needed for sprinkler irrigation
Flexible tubing for easy installation
Lower operating pressure of a drip tape means reduced energy needs
Resistant to chemicals and fertilizers commonly used in landscaping
Turbulent flow through a large labyrinth water passage helps reduce clogging
Used for above or below grade installation
Using drip tape below surface allows for field operations such as harvesting continuing during irrigation time because the areas between the rows remain dry, resulting in better weed control and lower production costs.
Using drip tape, high levels of water management can be achieved because plants are supplied with precise amounts of water
