We specialise in automated drip irrigation systems.
The future of irrigation in Southern Africa.
Drip irrigation (Above ground installations)
- Wind has no effect, meaning irrigation is possible at all hours of day or night without wastage.
- Saves you money because it is more efficient due to the prevention of evaporation losses and wastage due to wind, resulting in more efficient utilization of the available water.
- Avoiding wetting the foliage reduces the incidence of diseases and pests.
- Requires less energy than sprinklers and can be used on low pressure water supplies (suitable for grey and black water systems).
- Irrigation possible over long periods without ongoing labour inputs (Low maintenance).
- Suitable for all types of plants at all stages of growth.
- The soil crust is not broken when irrigating thus preventing the germination of weeds.
- Can be easily moved to other areas if required at a later stage.
- Facilitates application of fertilizers and pesticides, etc. to the soil via irrigation.
- Greater adaptability than sprinklers to irrigation doses and rates; also more suitable for especially hard soils due to lower infiltration capacity.
- There is no dependence on the topography of the area.
- More expensive initially.
- Pipes can be punctured when incorrect garden maintenance practises are used.
- Drip irrigation does not facilitate sprouting, frost protection, soil saturation or protection
against wind, because the soil surface remains, for the most part, dry.
