SHABRAN-D MMC - (Systems of drop watering)
Drop watering consists in water supply directly in a radical zone of a plant. Drop watering is necessary for trees, bushes (in the first 1-2 years of life), to the fruit and berry cultures and separate flower cultures which are badly transferring the top watering. The scheme of drop watering is as follows: droppers (a consumption of water 2, 4 or 8 of l/h) or are built in directly the main pipe (watering of linear group of plants), or by means of the pipeline are brought from an underground hydraulic system to each culture. By the way, for drop watering there are hoses with the compensated droppers which are built in itself. Irrespective of pressure in the bringing pipe at the exit for a unit of time the dropper with a diameter of 16 mm will have strictly certain amount of water, for example, it will make 2,3 l/h. Among other advantages of the mentioned system of drop watering we will note high degree of protection against a blockage and relative low cost.
Advantage of system of drop watering — essential economy of water and a possibility of the repeated dosed watering. Besides, the system of drop watering maintains optimum humidity of the soil and does not promote development of weeds.
Systems of drop watering can be used also for application of fertilizers. The last store in special tanks which connect parallel to the pipeline of drop watering. At pressure difference in the tubes entering and leaving capacity, the part of water gets to the tank and mixes up with fertilizers. More difficult systems of drop watering with fertilizers turn on the mixer, the pump and batchers, however they demand individual design.
