Drip irrigation has been an accepted and popular method for decades for irrigating many types of crops. vegetables, row crops, and orchards, in open fields and in greenhouses.
During the last twenty years, the integral dripper was developed and is manufactured in a range of pipe wall thicknesses characteristics, enabling flexibility in choosing the appropriate piping for the specific farming area at affordable and different costs. The choice of dripper discharge rate, spacing between drippers, pipe wall thicknesses for the lateral, and the options for internal pressure regulation and different discharge rates and operational conditions, offer the farmers and the agricultural planners flexibility and many options to choose from.
The manual “Selecting Proper Dripper Discharge Rate and Spacing” Written by Elisha Kenig and Moshe Broner, aims to provide a tool for designing the irrigation system according to the local conditions in your field.
