Drip Irrigation Tape

Drip Irrigation Tape for farmlands and greenhouses

Drip Irrigation Tape is a polymer pipe made of polyethylene, which has a place for water droplets to come out at certain distances.

Based on the tape’s thickness and the distance between emitters, Drip Irrigation Tape has a lot of variation. Its diameter is always 16mm and the thickness is from 150 to 200 microns. The distance between emitters is also from 10 to 30 cm.

But the most widely used type of Drip Irrigation Tape has a thickness of 175 and 200 microns and the distance between emitters (seams) is 20 cm.

The amount of irrigation water is normally from 1.2 liter to 3 liter per second.

Drip Irrigation Tape is widely used for row crops and seasonal crops such as cucumber, tomato, potato, pepper, cauliflower, lettuce, onion, melon, corn and…

Description

What is Drip Irrigation Tape? How to use and install it?

Drip Irrigation Tape is one of the best equipment in drip irrigation systems.

Drip irrigation was first used in clay pots before Christ and has gained a significant reputation in the agricultural industry since the invention of impact sprinklers in the 1930s.

This tape is a polymer pipe made of polyethylene which has a place for water droplets to come out at certain distances.

Drip Irrigation Tape is produced and supplied in two forms:

1.Drip tape with flat emitter

Flat Emitter Drip Irrigation Tape

2.Labyrinth drip tape

Labyrinth Drip Irrigation Tape

Flat emitter drip tape has emitters on it but labyrinth drip tape doesn’t have any emitters. On the edge of labyrinth drip tape, there’s a zigzag path (like a zipper), that breaks down the water pressure. So, the water droplets come out through the seams and reach the plant.

Based on the tape’s thickness and the distance between emitters, Drip Irrigation Tape has a lot of variation. Its diameter is always 16mm and the thickness is from 150 to 200 microns. The distance between emitters (seams) is also from 10 to 30 cm.

But the most widely used type of Drip Irrigation Tape has a thickness of 175 and 200 microns and the distance between emitters (seams) is 20 cm.

Drip Irrigation Tape for agricultural use

Drip Irrigation Tape delivers the water directly to where it is needed. This means less wasted water through evaporation, run-off and saturating soil where there are no plant.

Water usage can be reduced by up to %50 where using Drip Irrigation Tape.

Having an appropriate and high quality filter is a key factor in drip irrigation. Most of drip irrigation systems use a filter to prevent the tape’s clogging.

In some irrigation systems, due to the use of drinking water or purified water, using a filter is not needed.

Rolls Of Drip Irrigation Tape

Advantages of Drip Irrigation Tape:

  • Water usage can be reduced by up to %50.
  • More frequent watering on a targeted system keeps the soil at the optimal moisture level for the plants to thrive, resulting in a higher crop yield.
  • Due to the small diameter length, there’s no need to high pressure water.
  • Drip Irrigation Tape is also used in uneven lands and fields.
  • As Drip Irrigation Tape is made of polymer, it prevents sediment of minerals in water.
  • Drip Irrigation Tape is resistant to sunlight, chemicals, fertilizers and toxins.
  • Due to the uniform distribution of water in drip irrigation system, all plants grow uniformly.
  • This method doesn’t wet the branches, stems and leaves of the plant. And this significantly reduces the incidence of many plant pests.
  • It’s the most convenient and cost-effective method of drip irrigation for row crops.

Subsurface Drip Irrigation

Drip Irrigation Tape can be buried beneath the ground, exactly under the plant’s root to irrigate the plant directly.

This method is usually used for irrigation of a row of crops, especially in areas where water resources are limited.
