Drippers – types and choosing the best fit
On a flat terrain, when the required length of laterals is within the recommended length, the non-compensated dripline is a cost-effective choice. Short rows are common in manually harvested vegetables, pulses and small orchards.
For mechanized agriculture, longer rows are common, and it is advantageous to use PC drippers.
On undulated or steep topography, non-compensated drippers will emit less water in the elevated sections and more on the lower sections, while PC drippers will maintain the same flow rate along the entire lateral and safeguard uniform growth along the row.
