Drip Irrigation System

Drip Irrigation Systems

Drip Irrigation is the most efficient water and nutrient delivery system for growing crops. It delivers water and nutrients directly to the plant’s root zone, in the right amounts, at the right time, so each plant gets exactly what it needs, when it needs it, to grow optimally. It enables farmers to produce higher yields while saving on water as well as fertilizers, energy.

How does it work?

The system also includes control devices such as timers, pressure regulators, and flow meters. These components help automate the irrigation process, allowing for precise control over watering schedules and water application rates. Additionally, filters may be installed to remove any debris or sediment from the water, preventing clogging of the sprinkler heads.


Inline Drip System

In this system, the drip emitters or drippers are integrated into the lateral tubing at regular intervals. The emitters release water directly into the soil around the plants. This system is easy to install and allows precise control over water delivery to individual plants.

Subsurface Drip System

Also known as subsurface irrigation, this system involves burying the drip tubing beneath the soil surface. The emitters release water underground, close to the plant roots. This method reduces water evaporation and minimizes weed growth, as the soil surface remains dry.

Micro-Sprinkler System

This system combines drip irrigation with low-volume sprinklers. It uses micro-sprinkler heads that deliver water in a fine spray or mist, covering a larger area than individual drippers. Micro-sprinklers are often used in landscapes, orchards, and vineyards.

Drip Tape System

Drip tape is a thin-walled tubing with built-in emitters, spaced at regular intervals. It is usually made of polyethylene material and can be laid on the soil surface or buried. Drip tape is cost-effective, easy to install, and suitable for row crops and large-scale agricultural applications.

Button Dripper System

This system uses small button-like drippers that are inserted directly into the plant's root zone. The drippers are connected to a main supply line, delivering water precisely to individual plants. Button drippers are commonly used in potted plants and container gardening.

Multi-Outlet Drip System

This system incorporates multiple outlets or emitters on a single lateral line, supplying water to several plants simultaneously. It is useful for closely spaced plants or in situations where water needs to be distributed evenly over a large area.

Gravity-Fed Drip System

his simple and low-cost system relies on gravity to provide water pressure for the drip irrigation. Water is stored at an elevated point, and it flows through the system due to gravity, delivering water to the plants. This system is commonly used in small-scale agriculture and backyard gardening.
