Components of Quarter-Acre Drip Kits in Kenya

Pressure Compensating drip lines

we have 16 mm drip lines available in various holes spacing of 15 cm, 20 cm, and 30 cm.

Mainline Pipe

we always use HDPE or PVC pipes to install mainline connection on various irrigation systems. Both HDPE and PVC pipes are available in diameter levels ranging from 16 mm to 110 mm.

Sub-mainline pipes

Also makes use of PVC and HDPE pipe. While connecting sub mainline pipes we use pipes with smaller diameter than the mainline pipes. The reason is to subdivide water into different farm sections.

Water Irrigation Filters

A water filter removes sand and sediments from irrigation water. The entire filtered water can then be free from blocking drip emitters. Screen filters are ideal for simple and small farm projects. The mesh filter is 200-micron size and capable of trapping small particles.

End Caps

End caps are seals to use at the end of pipes. They prevent water loss from flows at the end of drip lines and delivery pipes.

Grommet Rubbers

Rubbers enhance leakage prevention in places where saddle clamps are used on behalf of Tee connectors. They seal the spaces between the pipes and clamps.

Tee connectors

Distributes water to sub-mainline pipes. Tee connectors for drip connects 2 drip lines and supplies water to two sections.

Elbow pipes

Elbow pipes can help adjust the course of pipes, entirely avoid objects. When laying down subsurface, drip elbow pipes are ideal to connect mainline to sub-mainline pipes.

Control and Check Valves

Ball valves and mini valves are useful to control and regulate the flow of water in a drip irrigation system. It enables easier adjustment and control of water to and off other sections.

Fertilizer Kit

it enables suction and injection of fertilizer to the drip irrigation system. You can mix soluble fertilizer in a tank and supply it to the mainline pipes using a fertilizer injector. Irrigation water mixes with fertilizer and flows to the plants.

We have fertilizer injectors of ½, ¾ and 1” sizes at affordable prices. For a quarter-acre, you need a smaller size of approximately ½”.

The approximate length of drip lines in Kenya for a quarter acre depends on the crop type needed. For a quarter acre with three drip lines per bed you need a total drip line length of 2500m.

For 2 lines per bed you need to drip line length of 1500m while 1 line per bed requires 1000m long drip line roll.

A quarter-acre is applicable to various drip line spacing in beds. Use either 15 cm, 20 cm, or 30 cm for crops such as vegetables, fruits, onions, capsicum and strawberries.
Quarter-acre drip lines can be spaced 1 Meter apart in beds separated by 1 M walking paths.
A bed can take 2-4 drip lines, depending on the crop you want to grow.

For a quarter-acre farm, you can do both surface and subsurface irrigation is ideal to use. You can divide your farm into sections and work with subsurface irrigation layout.

Surface drip will have your pipes moving on the surface, but not good since they are prone to damage.
