Irrigation Systems In Kenya

Grekkon Limited provides 3 types of irrigation systems in Kenya to farmers; from smallholder to large scale producers.

Irrigation systems in Kenya

1. Drip irrigation systems in Kenya

This is irrigation through a pre-perforated 16mm diameter, 0.3mm or 0.4mm thick pipe. It is the most popular of all irrigation systems supplied by the company.  It is also the most expensive at the time of installation. Drip irrigation conserves water because the emitters only water the root base of the plant. Grekkon Limited is credited as the pioneer of double emitter drip pipes in Kenya. Each roll has an emitter spacing of; 15cm, or 20cm, or 30cm. Double emitter drip pipes have the following advantages over the previous single emitters.

  •  faster wetting
  • less clogging
  • If one emitter is blocked, the other continues to irrigate
