PMDI (Precision Mobile Drip Irrigation)
Two Main Advantages of Precision Mobile Drip Irrigation:
Overall water efficiencyWith the drip line design, you eliminate evaporation and wind drift associated with traditional sprinklers because wind will not effect it as it applies the water at a super-efficient 95%. You get all the efficiency of surface drip at the much reduced cost per acre price of center pivots.
Dry wheel tracksIn many soils and cropping practices, deep wheel tracks on pivots and linears are a problem. With PMDI™ the drip lines water behind the wheels so the tires run on dry ground. The system consists of in-line drip hoses, in place of nozzles or sprinkler heads, that are dragged by the center pivot or lateral-move system. As the hoses are pulled through the field, emitters deliver an even water pattern across the full length of the pivot or linear sytem. In effect, PMDI™ technology combines the lower cost of center pivot irrigation with the proven efficency of drip irrigation for total water efficiency that approaches 95%.
|We believe that with proper maintenance our T-Ls will run until they're 50 years old.|
|I don't know what it is, but I also don't seem to have as much trouble with the nozzles clogging up on the T-L units as I do with the other units.|
