Drip irrigation is a form of irrigation that saves water and fertiliser by allowing
water to drip slowly to the roots of many different plants, either onto the soil
surface or directly onto the root zone, through a network of valves, pipes,
tubing, and emitters. It is done through narrow tubes that deliver water directly
to the base of the plant. It is chosen instead of surface irrigation for various
reasons, often including concern about minimising evaporation. Drip irrigation
is the perfect solution for any agriculture application.
Drip irrigation systems are very efficient, but they can be tricky to install. If you’re looking at getting a drip irrigation system for your agriculture application, visit us at Think Water Hawke’s Bay where we can design, supply, install and maintain these systems.
