Button Drippers

Share

Button drippers for sale by Grekkon Limited irrigate orchards, biennials, perennials, hedge, and forest trees. Our online button drippers irrigate each tree according to its water requirement. These drippers will be on the HDPE pipe at the base of the tree or other crops by making a perforation on the 16mm HDPE pipe. Our button drippers are a part of our drip fittings in Kenya.

 Grekkon limited supplies 2 types of button drippers in Kenya;

  1. Adjustable button drippers. The farmer has complete control over the volume of water emitted by these drippers. From zero liters per hour (complete shut off) to seventy liters per hour (completely open). They have color codes in red and come in various sizes according to the manufacturer. The discharge specs remain similar. The advantage of this type is that a farmer gets to decide how much water to give to each plant. Adjust for a tree that needs more to receive as much, and vice versa. The downside is that one may under or over irrigate unwillingly

2. Non-adjustable types. They irrigate according to the manufacturer’s set water discharge rate. Every discharge type is color-coded for ease of identification. They provide a uniform amount of water to each tree crop. On the negative, one cannot adjust to individual crop water needs.
