The Netafim Dripper Stake Assembly is ideal for soilless substrates and hydroponic applications because each plant pot or rock wool cube receives an equal and precise amount of water nutrients.
The slower and lower flow wet the soil media thoroughly without any run-off around the edges of the container. This allows longer runs on smaller polyethylene supply laterals maintaining excellent uniformity while holding down system costs. The PCNL dripper feature ensures that each plant receives the same amount of water at the same time. A built-in check valve assures that all the drippers will turn on – when the system is fully pressurized – and off at the same time. Dripper Stake Assembly with PCNL dripper offers high performance for a very low cost per plant position.
Most sprinkler systems lack uniform coverage and this creates wet and dry areas. Plant foliage interferes with water reaching the container. The result is a necessity to overwater many plants in order to provide adequate water to the dry areas and to overcome the interference of foliage. Netafim Dripper Stake Assemblies overcome these obstacles by delivering water directly to the plant. Each dripper adjusts itself automatically to the system pressure resulting in a watering uniformity of 94% – even on slopes. Since all water is delivered directly to the container, there is no run-off – no overspray into the aisles saving water, fertilizer, and energy.
