Drip Irrigation Lines for Sale vary in prices depending on the thickness and the length you want. Drip irrigation is the most water-efficient irrigation technique, capable of significantly lowering agricultural water usage while enhancing crop yields and quality. A drip irrigation system may be a valuable asset for a small farm if properly built, maintained, and managed. Drip irrigation is one of the most effective water-saving irrigation technology in Kenya.
Farmers that utilize drip irrigation instead of other methods, such as overhead irrigation, can save up to 50% more water and fertilizer. In Kenya, drip irrigation entails gradually releasing water into the root zone of plants, either over the soil surface or directly into the root zone, using a network of valves, pipes, and emission tubes (drip tape). Farmers have better control over their water supply using drip irrigation. Cello tape may be used to temporarily close off any holes where there are no plants, allowing water to travel to other places rather than being wasted.

Drip irrigation is used in which areas
Drip irrigation is best suited for row crops (vegetables, soft fruit), tree and vine crops with one or more emitters per plant. Because of the high capital expenditures of building a drip system, only high-value crops are often selected.
How does drip irrigation conserve water?
Drip irrigation, when properly designed, implemented, and managed, may assist accomplish water conservation by minimizing evaporation and deep drainage when compared to other methods of irrigation such as flood or overhead sprinklers since water may be supplied more precisely to the plant roots. Some of the ways drip line irrigation saves water are as follows:
- Drip irrigation application uniformity is fairly high—generally more than 90%.
- In contrast to sprinklers, drip irrigation irrigates the soil directly, reducing water loss due to wind.
- Because application rates are low, water may be spoon-fed to the crop or plant root zone in precise proportions (even on a daily or hourly basis). Other procedures, on the other hand, necessitate the use of more water and less often. When young plants require regular watering, a significant part of the water supplied is often lost to runoff or deep percolation.
- On sloping terrain or thick soils, low application rates are less likely to wash away.
- Non-targeted areas such as agricultural furrows and roads, greenhouse beds, blocks, or benches, or hardscape, buildings, or highways are not irrigated by drip irrigation.
- Drip irrigation quickly adapts to irregularly shape planting areas that sprinklers or gravity irrigation cannot.
- Drip irrigation can germinate seeds and establish transplants, minimizing the need for “sprinklering up” and the waste associated with crop development in the early stages.
