The concept of Gravity Drip Irrigation (GDI) has been developed with the purpose of providing the most economical solution for small scale growers. Proper operation of the system will result in higher yields, save water and energy, and provide a simple fertilizer application method.
The drippers provide uniform flow rates and are highly resistant to clogging.
• Fertilizer application:
No need for ferilizer injection apparatus. Soluble solid fertilzers can be mixed in the water tank for aplication
• Layout design:
Several manifolds may be servved sequentially from one water tank, according to field layout.
- Dripline Inside Diameter:
- Wall thickness: 4mm
- Flow rates Pressure:
A 130 micron screen filters provides sufficient protection.
Pressure – Flow rate:
0.07 bar – 0.26lph
0.10 bar – 0.33lph
0.20 bar – 0.43lph

- When using a small water storage tank, the refilling water volume should be calculated carefully (30 litres for every 100 m dripline).
