This write up answers these questions from farmers
1.What is the main function of irrigation?
To provide water to crops during periods of insufficient rainfall. Also, to grow crops in places where there is no rainfall at all such as greenhouses
2. What are the three main types of irrigation?
Overhead, surface, and drip
3. What are the four types of irrigation systems by Grekkon Limited?
Grekkon provides; sprinkler/ overhead irrigation, rain hose irrigation systems, drip irrigation kits, and button drippers
VEGETABLE DRIP IRRIGATION
Our vegetable drip irrigation kit is designed according to the crop. Watermelons that are sparsely spaced have 1 drip line per bed, tomato, cabbage, pepper have 2 drip lines per bed and closely spaced crops like onion, garlic, strawberry, herbs have 3 drip lines per bed. Crop spacing determines the emitter spacing used on the drip line. Grekkon Limited’s drip irrigation kits have a flow rate of 1.5 liters to 2 liters per hour, are 0.4mm thick, and 16mm in diameter. We have an option of single or double emitters on each drip irrigation equipment. The former for low water gravity flow, the latter for high-pressure machine pumped water flow.
BUTTON DRIP IRRIGATION
Button drip irrigation is used on biannual and perennial crops that are sparsely spaced and require large amounts of water. Orchards, forestry, parks and hedges are watered using this system. We install both adjustable and none adjustable button drippers with flow rates of up to 70 liters per hour.
RAIN GUN SPRINKLERS
Rain gun sprinklers are high pressure, high volume water sprinklers used on diverse crops. We supply them as 1”, 1.5″, 2″, and 2.5″ brass and steel units with a lifetime of 50 years. Before installing any rain gun sprinkler, we assist the grower in determining his/ her water sufficiency and supplying the appropriate pump to power the sprinkler unit.
Our plastic or brass sprinklers are designed to work under low gravity and high pressure water flow. Water discharge rate, optimum working pressure and spray radius is determined by the nozzle size, for which we have; 1/2″, 3/4” and 1″.
POP UP SPRINKLERS
Pop-up sprinklers are set below ground level to water lawns and golf courses. As the name suggests, they are pushed up by water under high pressure and rotate 360 degrees for over a timed period. Grekkon Limited’s pop up sprinklers are available as; 1/2″ and 3/4″.
RAIN HOSE IRRIGATION
Rain hose is a high pressure irrigation system utilising nano technology. It is flexible HDPE hose with a pattern of sequential holes punctured along its width. Puncturing of these holes using nano technology ensures uniformity of emission. It works well in crop nurseries, low lying vegetable crops and in crops that cannot be drip irrigated such as carrot.
