What factors affect Drip line Prices in Kenya
Number of Drip lines per bed
The number of drip lines to use per farm section determines the cost you will incur to purchase and set up the drip lines.
Size or Diameter of the Drip line
Emitter pipes vary in diameter depending on application and crop type. The common sizes normally applicable are PN6 of 16mm diameter.
The flow rate of a drip emitter depends on the manufacturer, but it can also be used to determine the value of the pipe.
Spacing of Drip Emitters
Drip emitters have 3 types of emitter hole spacings; 15 cm, 20 cm, and 30 cm.
The spacing determines which crops to grow depending on the water requirements and evaporation rates.
15 cm spacing offers adequate nutrient supply to vegetables such as carrots, spinach, and cauliflower.
20 cm and 30 cm can be good for drip irrigation of potatoes, cabbage, tomato, and watermelons.
What Components are required for a Complete Setup of Drip lines?
Drip lines cannot function without pipes, valves, connector fittings and filters.
Mainline pipes are important to supply water from sources or tanks since they are not delicate unlike emitters. Valves are crucial at branching points to regulate the flow of water.
Emitters are normally prone to sedimentation hence they require filters to trap sand and debris which always block pipes.
