The Israeli pioneer in drip irrigation Netafim, has launched its next-generation low-flow drippers technology, featuring a new design of smart irrigation solutions that fight food scarcity across the globe.

Netafim’s 50th-anniversary celebrations anchored by the fifth generation of the Company’s breakthrough design, initially developed in 1970. The next-gen drippers handle flow rates as low as 0.4 l/h with superb clogging resistance. The new line is highly durable and works effectively for multiple years regardless of water quality, including harsh water.

The new drippers give growers greater control consistent and high yields. The new line drastically reduces the investment required for new system installation, and cuts labor costs by irrigating large plots while minimizing in-field shifting to further enhance grower profitability.

 

 

The first of Netafim’s next-gen drippers is Aries™, handling flow rates of 0.5 l/h-4.0 l/h. The Company will soon release the second member of the new dripper line, Orion™, which is set to break even greater barriers in clogging resistance, durability and operational efficiency.

“With the world population expected to grow rapidly over the next few decades, there is a need to significantly increase food production, ” said Netafim CEO Ran Maidan. “Our next-generation low-flow drippers are part of the global effort to fight food scarcity. Improving crop yields regardless of water quality while lowering dependence on water and other resources, the new line is helping us revolutionize irrigation, shape the future of agriculture, and make the world a more sustainable place.”
