Drip Irrigation for Better Open Field Vegetable Production
Open field vegetables are a cash crop that go directly from the field to the market, and as such need to be of high quality.
Most vegetable growers consider drip line/tape the ‘go to’ solution, efficiently providing everything the plant needs from water to nutrients as well as being an effective way to reduce weeds, fungus and disease.
With multiple, short seasons each year, combined with a high price per square meter of cropping, choosing a drip irrigation system you can count on is critical.
The Rivulis line of single season drip products including the world renowned Rivulis T-Tape gives you certainty and flexibility, close emitter spacing for better uniformity, along with clog resistance and a wide variety of configurations to meet your unique needs for growing open field vegetables.
We also offer Rivulis X-Pell the world’s first insect repellent drip line and drip tape, which eliminates the headache of frequent repairs, reduces total system costs, saves money by enabling the use of lower wall thickness drip line/tape and provides peace of mind to those who suffer from insects.
Matt Hood of Rugby Farming Group shares his 20 year experience of working with Rivulis to develop his irrigation strategy for the 15,000 crop acres produced per year and the rationale for shifting from other irrigation methods to seasonal drip irrigation, specifically the benefits realized with the Rivulis T-Tape.
Alvaro Nieto, Director of Rancho Santa Amalia shares how Rivulis T-Tape has helped them achieve better yields, greater uniformity and better quality.
