Drip Systems

A drip system, or the irrigation system of the greenhouse, has a major influence on the irrigation of a crop.

The drip system is important to give the right amount of water, fertilizers and crop protection agents to the crop.

Drip systems for professional horticulture

At Royal Brinkman you can find a complete drip irrigation system from Netafim to water the crop by drip irrigation. A drip system consists of a system of pipes, including water pipes, drip hoses and drippers. If you choose for a drip irrigation system, you have to choose between three different systems: capillary, labyrinth or an inline system. Depending on the desired delivery, you can choose one of these drip systems.

Then you choose for the drip hoses and drippers. An irrigation hose ensures equal water flow within the crop. However, each crop has a different need. That's why you have to take a number of factors into account when choosing the right irrigation tube, including colour, diameter, punch distance and type of dripper. A dripper is the element or tube that doses the water to the plant.

The choice of a dripper also depends on various factors: cultivation, bed length, number of drops per metre and desired water flow. Not every dripper can be combined with every dripper hose. In addition to the irrigation tube and the dripper, you also need to choose a sampler. This sampler determines the location of the water supply. It is therefore important that you are well advised about the right drip system in combination with the right drip hose, drip head and plug.

Cleaning drip systems

In a drip system pollution can occur, causing germs and algae to spread, resulting in a biofilm in the drip system. Therefore it is important to clean the drip system regularly. You can clean the system during cultivation as well as after cultivation.

Therefore, you should always be well advised by a specialist, so that the drip system is completely in line with your situation.

What is the best greenhouse irrigation system?

Let's go through the important points quickly. Drip irrigation, in general, are preferable since they provide water from below. They are superior in terms of water management and watering precision. The drip system can be used for a variety of purposes. Consider the drip system if you're seeking for a solution that can be scaled to any size. Water is wasted when plants are watered from above, and it can (but does not have to) cause plant diseases or pests.

The trick is to choose the correct irrigation system for your greenhouse, and there is always a system that will meet your needs. You must be realistic about the size of your greenhouse, the plants you can cultivate, and how much an irrigation system will cost you.
