Whether solid set irrigation lines are above ground or buried, the solid set irrigation method can provide high application uniformity. In a solid set arrangement, pipe can be removed from the field for cultural practices which eliminates the necessity of farming around sprinkler risers. Because the pipe is not permanently fixed in one location, it is possible for successive sets to be offset from the previous position in order to even out the overall uniformity. The solid set method is used extensively for both crop irrigation and frost protection.
The term “micro-irrigation” describes a family of irrigation systems that apply water through small devices. These devices deliver water onto the soil surface very near the plant or below the soil surface directly into the plant root zone. Micro-irrigation systems are immensely popular not only in arid regions and urban settings but also in sub humid and humid zones where water supplies are limited or water is expensive. In irrigated agriculture, micro-irrigation is used extensively for row crops, mulched crops, orchards, gardens, greenhouses and nurseries. System installation plays a critical role in your system’s efficiency and performance. Our team is committed to installing efficient and innovative systems, on time, on budget, and to design specifications.
A very efficient and exacting method of irrigation, drip irrigation applies precise amounts of water to specific areas of the growing field. This method provides maximum crop yields and water savings. Durham Pump offers several types of low-volume irrigation – drip systems, micro spray and misting systems. From greenhouse to row crop applications, these systems use a minimum amount of water yet achieve maximum results because of the precision with which the water is applied to the plant.
