The custom dripline product saves water, energy and labor
Press Release Provided by Rain Bird Agriculture
Rain Bird Agriculture, a leading manufacturer and provider of precision irrigation products, recently launched S5 Smart Spacing for Pressure Compensating Heavywall Dripline, the ultimate in smart irrigation for growers of high-value fruit and permanent crops.
Rain Bird’s S5 Pressure Compensating Heavywall Dripline features Smart Spacing, which allows growers to specify repeating patterns of variable spacing between emitters. This helps growers to deliver water directly to the root zone of the plants and not the areas in between. By eliminating unneeded emitters between plants, Smart Spacing can significantly reduce input costs by saving water, energy, labor and fertilizer.
“At Rain Bird Agriculture, we are strongly committed to water conservation and the development of water-efficient products, such as our new S5 Dripline with Smart Spacing,” said Greg Palumbo, Director of Rain Bird Agriculture. “With the ongoing uncertainty regarding water availability in the Western U.S., we feel a great responsibility to provide products that offer meaningful solutions for growers. By eliminating unneeded emitters, Smart Spacing allows growers to conserve water and simultaneously reduce other input costs that are dependent on the irrigation system.”
S5 Dripline uses Rain Bird’s unique GritX™ Emitter, which features a filterless design that prevents clogging by allowing grit to easily pass through the emitter. GritX™ Emitter Technology features market-leading distribution uniformity, precise and accurate flow rates, and the fastest recovery time when grit gets into a system.
With a five-year workmanship and seven-year environmental stress-cracking warranty, S5 Dripline is recommended for use on almonds, apples, avocados, pecans, pistachios, walnuts and more. S5 Dripline can be purchased from authorized Rain Bird Agriculture dealers.
