As a large population and agricultural country, China has been exploring more advanced irrigation methods to promote the high yield of crops. Drip irrigation is an increasingly popular agricultural irrigation technology that saves water, saves energy and promotes high yield. However, this kind of irrigation technology has not been widely used in China at present. Even if the drip irrigation technology has been used, there are still some misunderstandings, such as can not distinguish between the drip irrigation tape and drip irrigation pipe. Today, I will tell you the differences between them.
First of all, the drip irrigation tape is flat in the absence of water and pressure, while the drip irrigation pipe is cylindrical.
Secondly, the drip irrigation is divided from the form of the drip head. The drip tape is generally inlaid with a flat head, while the drip irrigation pipe is inlaid with a cylindrical head.
The third is the use time. Compared with the drip irrigation pipe, the wall thickness of drip irrigation tape is thinner and the use time is shorter, while the use time of drip irrigation pipe is longer.
Fourth, the amount of water output. The water output of drip irrigation tape is about 2L/h, and that of drip irrigation pipe is about 3L/h. The output of drip pipe is larger than that of drip tape.
Fifth, investment. Investment of drip irrigation pipe is higher than that of drip irrigation tape.
Common drip irrigation with labyrinth drip irrigation tape and embedded patch drip irrigation tape. Drip head and drip irrigation tape integrated, easy to use and low price, the choice of drip irrigation tape is very large. Drip irrigation pipe is an important irrigator in the drip irrigation system. It drops water and nutrients needed by crops into the root zone soil evenly and slowly, drop by drop, according to the requirements of crop water requirements through the low-pressure pipe system and the emitter mounted on the capillary.
The most common drip irrigation pipe is the cylindrical drip irrigation pipe with thick wall, long service time and better corrosion resistance than drip irrigation belt, but the cost is higher.
Drip irrigation tape takes advantage of its own pipeline to directly irrigate water to the root of crops through the upper orifice or the drip head of the capillary tube with a diameter of about 10mm, with uniform irrigation effect and high water-saving efficiency.
Drip irrigation pipe uses a low-pressure pipe system and an emitters mounted on a capillary tube to evenly and slowly irrigate the nutrients needed by water and crops into the soil in the root zone of crops. That’s the difference between drip irrigation tape and drip irrigation pipe.
In a word, they have their own characteristics and advantages. Therefore, appropriate drip irrigation products should be selected when installing and using drip irrigation equipment, and the type and planting situation of crops should be considered comprehensively, as well as the water output effect of the service life of drip irrigation products.
