With Patak-Ani DripKit, no electricity is required, easy to install (do-it-yourself), portable, and affordable!
BENEFITS OF PATAK-ANI DRIPKIT
üImproved yield. Slow and regular application of water and nutrients uniformly to all plants improves product quality and uniformity and increase yield.
üWater saving. Water savings are 50% compared to traditional irrigation methods. A farmer can irrigate more crops per area per unit of water used resulting to increase on water used efficiency.
üLabor saving. Less labor is required for irrigation, weeding, and fertilizer application compared to traditional production methods.
üTolerance to salinity. Due to slow and regular application of water, concentration of salts in the root zone is reduced and by micro-leaching salts are kept away from the root zone.
üApplication to Variety of Crops. A number of different crops can be irrigated including vegetable crops, fruit cops, commercial crops, flowers, etc.
üReducing fungal disease. Wetting of the foliage is eliminated.
