Southern Irrigation first made a mark as a specialist in drip irrigation in 1987. We have grown as a company to include knowledge and products in all areas of water transfer, but our drip irrigation expertise is unparalleled.
Drip Irrigation is the most effective irrigation system as it delivers water directly to the root zone of the plant via a system of pipes, valves, tubing and emitters. As a result, this method provides little to zero water waste, saving both money and time.
For many years, Southern Irrigation has worked closely with Netafim’s drip irrigation lines and they have proved to be the industry’s most advanced drip irrigation line available. Ideal for tree, vine and greenhouse crops, Netafim driplines provide growers with efficient, money-saving tools to better manage specific water and nutrient requirements in there drip irrigation system.
Netafim’s unique dripper features include:
Netafim pioneered the use of molded drippers and each one is manufactured to Netafim’s highest standards – the standard from which other manufacturer’s measure their performance. Injection-molded drippers are made of high quality polyethylene material and are welded into a wall of seamless tubing creating a strong and durable dripline. The dripline is made from the highest quality resins available so it’s resilient enough to last through multiple seasons, year after year. Netafim’s superior dripline works better and lasts longer reducing replacement costs and maintenance requirements – saving time and money.
Raised Dripper Design
Because Netafim drippers are welded to the inside wall of the tubing, their raised position points the dripper inlet toward the center of the tubing where it draws the cleanest possible water. The larger particles travel along the walls of the tubing, bypassing the dripper’s inlet, reducing entry of potentially clogging sediment.
