Orchard crops demand relatively large amounts of water. Insufficient precipitation limits the growth of trees and fruits, resulting in a reduction of the size and the quality of yields. Adequate investments in irrigation systems, which include fertigation solutions, can potentially provide the yields obtained in the years of highest precipitation.
The products most commonly used in orchard irrigation are integrated driplines, laid down along the lines of trees, with dripper spacing at 0,5 – 0,7 m and discharge 1 – 2 lt/h, enabling irrigation of an entire row. The lines can be pressure compensated, depending on terrain topography and row length.
For frost protection purposes, we use sprinklers with a radius of 10m.
