Improve your almond crops. Consistently hit yield targets, and plan with confidence.
Is there any way to protect my irrigation equipment from agro machinery?
Yes. Using sub-surface drip irrigation (SDI) eliminates physical damage to the irrigation system, which is very important for highly mechanized crops like almonds. In addition, SDI allows growers to irrigate without obstructing field access for spraying or harvest crews and equipment.
How can I reduce dust at harvest?
Using micro sprinklers as a choice of emitter for your precision irrigation solution will allow you to wet the surface and reduce dust and prevent environmental hazards.
Why is it important to have drippers between the trees?
The almond root zone is found all along the line, so it’s important to wet the entire length of the planting row.
Why should I choose drip over other irrigation methods?
Another common irrigation method for growing almonds is micro sprinklers (MS). While using drip irrigation can save up to 25% of the water compared to MS, it is also the most efficient way to apply fertilisers and keep the surface dry, preventing unwanted weed growth. Nevertheless, if water saving is not a top priority, micro sprinklers can be a good solution for a precision irrigation method and Netafim offers a full range of drip and micro sprinkler solutions.
