Sometimes all it takes is a really good filter to get rid of the weeds

Native Texas Nursery is a 40-acre nursery that provides native plants to Texas garden centers, landscapers, architects, municipalities, and other organizations.

The nursery’s irrigation water is sourced from its pond, which is filled by wells. Over the years, the nursery faced a major challenge when weed seeds naturally infiltrated this water

The advantages of screen filters for irrigation

As discussed in previous blog posts, the plugging of emitters by physical, chemical, or biological contaminants can severely impact irrigation uniformity and increase the maintenance requirements for irrigation systems.

Well-designed irrigation systems should include measures that prevent clogging, including reliable filtration.

Night irrigation – so much more than extra pillow time

Moving to night irrigation will lower water costs. There is typically less wind at night, so loss of water from spray jets and pivots will be reduced. By moving the irrigation cycle to the night, you will also prevent and mitigate many of the side effects created by evaporation. Since it’s usually cooler at night, less water is lost to evaporation,

Efficient flush design for irrigation systems

Irrigation systems are a crucial investment for the high-yield production of quality produce.

As discussed in previous blog posts, physical, biological and chemical materials are found in most water sources. When water travels through irrigation pipelines, these materials usually stay suspended in the water, but when the water flow slows or stops,

Designing your irrigation system to save water and time

Irrigation for agriculture is the primary user of water worldwide, and demand is now exceeding supply. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, 80% of water in the U.S. is used in agricultural irrigation. Unfortunately, this irrigation usage also tends to be highly inefficient and a substantial amount of water is lost to runoff and

It’s all about the filter

Making sure your irrigation system works optimally for the long-term

Emitters clogging is one of the most significant problems in irrigation. Clogging can be caused by physical, chemical or biological contaminants and it can severely impact water application uniformity and will increase the need for everyday maintenance of irrigation systems.

Maintaining proper water pressure and flow in drip irrigation systems

One of the main goals when designing an irrigation system is to make sure that every single plant in your field gets exactly the right amount of water and nutrients from added fertilizers – also in the long-term.

Protecting your irrigation system from clogging

In our last blog post, we discussed the main causes of emitter clogging in irrigation systems: physical, biological and chemical.

What is clogging my irrigation system?

One of the most significant investments a farmer makes is the design and installation of an effective irrigation system. And one of the most common irrigation system challenges is preventing irrigation emitter clogging. These emitters are usually small, so it is not a matter of IF they will get clogged but rather a matter of WHEN and HOW.
