  • Manual Installation Pipe
  • Rigid Kit
  • Center hinge or other mechanical irrigation systems with mechanical movement
  • Hose reel or traveling gun system

Drip Irrigation:

Drip irrigation involves the use of small diameter poly pipes with radiators and is used to distribute water directly to the root zone of the plant in a small area. The transmitter can be installed into the pipe manually to water certain trees or plants. 

Micro-Irrigation:

Micro-irrigation uses small volumetric sprinklers called micro-sprinklers in agricultural irrigation systems that irrigate gardens and vineyards. In most cases, a micro spray is installed at the foot of the tree to water the tree only. In some cases, a micro spray is installed between two trees. Water can be supplied to the micro-sprinklers from polyethylene or poly pipes above ground or from PVC pipes laid underground.
