DRIP IRRIGATION

VEGETABLE DRIP KITS

Our vegetable drip 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 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 DRIPPERS

Button drip irrigation is for biannual and perennial crops that are sparsely spaced. 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.

OVERHEAD IRRIGATION

RAIN GUN SPRINKLERS

Rain gun sprinklers are high pressure, high volume water sprinklers for 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.

IMPACT SPRINKLERS

Our plastic or brass sprinklers 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

RAIN HOSE KITS

Rain Hose is a high-pressure irrigation system with nanotechnology. It is a flexible HDPE hose with a pattern of sequential holes punctured along its width. Nanotechnology puncturing provides uniformity of emission. It works well in crop nurseries, low-lying vegetable crops, and in crops that cannot be drip irrigated such as carrot.

  • Hi. I need to irrigate about 2.5 acres. There is a water tower and a borehole with an electric powered pump in the farm. The crops are short and long. Advise on the sprinkler type. I thought of the rain gun type operated with a surface electric booster pump. Please advise on this or other sprinkler options. I am not keen on drip irrigation for other reasons. The terrain is flat. Tell me a quote with an appropriate delivery pipe size. Thank you

    • Good morning Musa,

      Drip irrigation for an acre with that spacing is Kes 110,000 / $1,000 to cover all material and labor.
      However, for a detailed quote, we need to visit or have an elaborate farm sketch.
