Producers who love the efficiency of drip irrigation put are put off by the cost and the problems of below-ground PVC systems will want to check out the Netafim booth at this year's 3i Show July 10-12 in Dodge City.
Natafim, the pioneers of drip irrigation, have unveiled PolyNet, a high-performance, flexible, lightweight, cost-effective piping solution for above and below-ground drip agricultural irrigation systems.
PolyNet has mainline and sub-mainline piping that allows for easy installation – and equally easy re-coiling for relocation in an alternate field or a change in configuration.
Featuring leakage-free lateral connectors and integrated welded outlets, spaced according to customer requirements, PolyNet's advanced design provides growers with an easy-to-assemble, precise water delivery solution that lowers labor and maintenance costs, increases water savings and improves crop performance potential through enhanced system performance. Additionally, the cost (per acre) of a PolyNet drip irrigation system is substantially less than a below-ground PVC system, giving producers more options when deciding on a system that is the right fit for their operation.
"A perfect complement to Netafim's singular focus of providing reliable, simple and affordable irrigation solutions to help today's farmers address the challenges of an increasingly complex industry, PolyNet enables farmers to reap the benefits of a drip irrigation system in areas where flexibility is essential," said said Ze'ev Barylka, Director of Marketing for Netafim USA. "Since first pioneering drip irrigation technology nearly 5 decades ago, the debut of PolyNet is a result of Netafim's continued commitment to providing growers with leading tools and technology needed to improve yield potential and productivity, while reducing costs, labor and water use."
Available in a wide range of diameters, PolyNet's thermostatic collapsible irrigation pipe is constructed from rugged premium polyethylene materials that are designed to be versatile and durable enough to withstand the weight of heavy field machinery as well as the most stringent environmental conditions. Requiring no specialized installation tools, PolyNet is equipped with a connector kit and an array of branching and lateral fittings, making it compatible with any Netafim on-surface or subsurface irrigation system.
