Overhead Irrigation utilizes large aperture nozzles that can throw water as far as 20 metres.
The main advantage of over head irrigation is the schemes capacity to irrigate larges areas for relatively little capital outlay. However, the accuracy and uniformity of overhead irrigation is much less than other forms of irrigation. Whilst it is the cheapest form of irrigation on initial setup, It is also the least efficient when it comes to water usage and the large droplets could damage certain crops.
The use of overhead sprinklers is still highly effective and suitable in many instances. Therefore, DripTech Irrigation’s overhead sprinkler systems can be designed to be permanent or to have moveable spray lines which allow you to cover larger areas with less equipment. We stock a wide range of different overhead irrigation systems and multiple nozzles in each system to allow each scheme to be custom designed to meet individual requirements.
