Sprinklers in Kenya
Sprinklers in Kenya are used to irrigate agricultural crops, lawns and landscapes. Sprinklers in Kenya is however the most used and efficient method.
Sprinkler irrigation is the method of applying water in a controlled manner similar to rainfall. The water is distributed through a network that may consist of pumps, valves, pipes and sprinklers.it is useful on uneven land where sufficient water is not available as well as on sandy soil.
We have a wide variety of these sprinklers both low pressure and high pressure.
(1)Low pressure sprinklers
We have butterfly and ground sprinklers which are good for small vegetable gardens. They release water slowly at a radius of 5mtrs to 6mtrs
(2)High pressure sprinklers
Under this category we have a variety of these sprinklers and are used for different purposes.
(i)Pop up sprinklers
They are ideal for lawns and landscapes and operate at a minimum pressure of 1.5–3bars. They have a flow rate of 2ltrs to 4ltrs depending on the coverage Arch –900, 1800or 3600
(ii)Rain gun sprinklers These are large irrigation sprinklers that irrigate farms a radius of 15mtrs –45mtrs
These are best for tall bushes such as coffee plantations, tea plantations and orchids. They are available in diameters of 32mm, 50mm and 63mm both brass and plastic.
These are small types sprinklers mostly used in greenhouses to increase humidity. They are ideal for propagation units and crops that require maintaining micro climate.
Basically they are designed for a wide range of general fields. They are also called impact sprinklers. We have them from small nozzle size with low flow rates and large nozzle size with high flow rates. Available in sizes: 20mm, 25mm and 32mm.
