FAQs

Things we often get asked:

  • Why should I choose drip irrigation over sprinklers?

    Drip irrigation enables optimal uniform soil moisture and outstanding aeration. It delivers water and nutrients directly to your crops’ root zone. Drip irrigation uses up to 40% less water and energy than sprinkler irrigation. Alternately, overhead sprinklers that scatter water over the canopy lead to water waste due to evaporation and run-off, as well as unwanted weed growth and high moisture levels that favor foliar diseases.  

  • How often should I irrigate citrus with drip irrigation?

    This depends on many factors, such as soil type, phonological stage, climate, tree age, etc. But usually in heavy soils, irrigation should be applied between 2-4 days, and in sandy/light soils irrigation should be applied daily.
