Affordable Drip Irrigation for Small-Plot Farmers
driptech product

Driptech has created the best drip irrigation system for small-plot farmers - affordable, high quality, and easy-to-use. Without the need for expensive and complex emitters, Driptech systems are priced at least 50% lower than traditional commerically available drip irrigation systems. A small-plot family would be able to afford and purchase a Driptech system that will produce enough vegetables to increase their income.

After buying this system, farmers can recoup their initial investment in less than 6 months, with significant increases in income over the next 3-5 years -- the lifespan of the product.

Driptech’s system can also be easily scaled up or down depending on the size of the field, thus giving it a technological advantage over both capital intensive commercial drip irrigation and water intensive flood irrigation.


Driptech Irrigation System Components

Driptech drip irrigation tubing

Delivers uniform water flow into the roots of the crop via precisely punched holes. The Driptech tubing requires no expensive and complex emitters, eliminating the top cause for clogging. To adjust for the size of a land plot, a farmer needs to just scale up or down the number of Driptech rolls. Each roll contains 200 meters in length of tubing.


Driptech takeoff valve

Connects the Driptech tubing to the PVC piping. The takeoff valve is a manual ball-valve that allows farmers to specify which area of the land to irrigate. This control system allows farmers to divide a land plot into different zones of crops.


Grommet

Helps to connect the takeoff valve into the PVC piping, while sealing off water leaks. The grommet allows the valve to be easily installed without the use of adhesive.


Filter

Ensures clean water is delivered into the Driptech irrigation system. The Driptech system uses a mesh-type screen filter, which allows farmers to easily clean by flushing it with water.


Our Product in the Field

PVC piping is used to deliver the water from the source to the field. The takeoff valve then runs the water into the Driptech tubing to be irrigated into crops.
