DRIP IRRIGATION FITTINGS – EUNIDRIP

Drip irrigation is a way to water plants with great accuracy that uses the least amount of water and fertilizer. This way of watering helps farmers save money on the costs of running their farms. Eunidrip Irrigation Systems is a well-known company in the country that sells fittings for drip irrigation systems. Depending on your design, we have a wide range of fittings in different sizes. We do more than just sell equipment. We also design and set up drip irrigation systems.

 

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and high-density polyethene are the two main types of drip irrigation fittings that we sell (HDPE). What kind of fittings you choose will depend on how the drip irrigation is set up.

 

HDPE fittings

 

These fittings have been treated to stop the sun from breaking them down. They are also resistant to rust and chemicals, so they can be used with fertilizers. HDPE fittings can only be used with HDPE pipes, and they are easy to put together and keep up. Drip irrigation uses some of these HDPE fittings, such as:

 

Tees are used to send water in two different directions. Depending on how the inlet is made, they can be put into one of three groups. These three t-shirts are for men, women, and everyone.

Elbows: The elbow helps to change the flow direction at a 900 angle. Depending on how the inlet is made, they can also be called male, female, or equal elbows.

Adaptors: We use adaptors to connect pipes to irrigation parts like filters, ball valves, tank connectors, and venturi injectors. Depending on how they are made, they can be men or women.

We use couplings to join two HDPE pipes together. They can either be equal couplings or reducers. To raise the water pressure, we use reducing couplings.

End caps: These put a tight seal on the ends of the pipe to stop leaks.

16 mm HDPE fittings: These are what we use on the drip lines. There are off takes, end caps, rubbers, and starter connectors among these fittings. With the help of starter connectors, the drip line can be joined to the HDPE pipe. Drip-to-drip connectors help fix torn driplines, and the rubber helps keep leaks from happening at the starter connectors. End caps keep the drip line ends from leaking.

PVC fittings

 

For drip irrigation below the ground, PVC fittings work better. This is because most PVC materials can break down when left in the sun for a long time. To connect pipes with PVC fittings, you will need to use tangit. PVC pipes are joined together with Tangit, which is a strong glue.

 

Carefully apply it so that it doesn’t leak at the joints. In our shop, you can find male, female, and equal tees, male, female, and equal elbows, sockets, bushes, threaded and unthreaded ball valves, equal and reducing connectors, threaded and unthreaded end caps, nipples, and sockets.

 

Our prices for drip irrigation fittings are fair, and you can count on getting good equipment. Customers who want to buy our gear can do so through our online store or in person at our shop on George Morara Road in Nakuru town. If you have a question, you can call us at 0728163329.

TOMATO FARMING IN KENYA

Tomatoes are plants that require a lot of attention to ensure optimum yields. You will need to apply many fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides during the growing period, which can be pretty costly. However, you can be assured of maximum returns by your tomatoes during the harvesting season. You can carry out tomato farming in Kenya in greenhouses or on an open farm. Tomatoes grown in the greenhouse give you more control over the growing conditions than those in the open field. Some of the parameters you can easily control in the greenhouse include the temperature, humidity, water, pests, light and carbon dioxide levels.

Varieties of tomatoes grown in Kenya.

There are two main types of tomatoes grown, i.e., the bush and vine types. The bush variety is usually tiny and grows more horizontally than vertically. Vine types of tomatoes generally grow more vertically than horizontally. The bush variety requires a crop support system to ensure the plants stay upright. Common types of tomatoes grown in Kenya include:
1. Heil room tomatoes – they change from dark red to bright red when they are ripe. Moreover, they are juicy and can either be sweet or tangy.
2. Red Beefsteak tomatoes – the main characteristic that distinguishes these tomatoes is their large size.
3. Cherry tomatoes – these tomatoes come in various shapes and colours, and they are juicy and sweet.
4. Cocktail tomatoes – these tomatoes are softer than the others and have a few seeds.
5. Grape tomatoes – this variety doesn’t shrink when cooked, and they come in various colours.
6. Roma tomatoes – have a pleasing aroma when cooked. In addition to that, they are tasty and fleshy.
7. Green Beefsteak tomatoes – these tomatoes retain their green colour even when ripe.
Climatic conditions for tomato farming in Kenya.
Tomatoes perform well in areas above 2000m above sea level and have temperatures between 200 and 270C. The tomatoes can get chilling injury when grown in places with temperatures below 120C. Furthermore, their growth will be affected when grown in areas having temperatures above 270C. Tomatoes are water-sensitive plants that need an average of 600mm of rainfall in a year. They can grow well in various soils as long as they are well-drained.
Drip irrigation for tomatoes.
Tomatoes are prone to fungal diseases; hence you need an appropriate and effective watering way. Drip irrigation is more suitable for tomato growing since the system delivers water at the root base and in proper amounts. It is also possible to apply fertilisers using the drip system through a fertigation unit.

The area you grow your tomatoes should have a slight slope to avoid waterlogging. If the site is flat, you can use raised beds to plant. It would be best to elevate the beds to a height of 30cm and have a width of 1m. Some of the benefits farmers gain when using drip irrigation for tomato farming in Kenya include:
1. Control of weed growth.
2. Effective fertiliser and water use.
3. Savings on operating costs.
4. Applying water using drip irrigation helps save time.

MICRO-SPRINKLER IRRIGATION

Micro-sprinkler irrigation is a type of sprinkler irrigation that provides low to moderate water quantities at low pressure. This is an efficient method of water distribution for your farm. The mechanism uniformly distributes precipitation throughout your farm. It is suitable for crops such as peanuts, chili peppers, capsicum, cilantro, etc. Tomatoes, beans, and lettuce, which are susceptible to fungal illnesses, are not ideal for this procedure. Sprinklers must be overlapped to guarantee regular water distribution across the field. At Eunidrip Irrigation Systems, we recommend a 20 percent overlap of the distance between adjacent microsprayers.

The following are some of the benefits of employing micro-sprinkler irrigation:

  1. There is a uniform distribution of water on the soil.
  2. The use of micro-sprinklers makes it easy to detect blockages compared to drip irrigation.
  3. Increased yields on the farm due to efficient water and nutrient application.
  4. This method of irrigation is ideal for sloppy or irregular fields.

Components of micro-sprinkler irrigation.

  1. Piping network – This network consists of pipes that transport water from the pump to the farm. Depending on where the pipes would be installed, high-density polyethene (HDPE) or polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes would be optimal. Our knowledgeable staff can advise you on which pipes to use.
  2. Filters – they help to remove particles from the water that can clog the sprinkler nozzles. Disc and screen filters are more suitable for such a system.
  3. Fittings and accessories to make connections in the system.
  4. Micro-sprinklers – these distribute the water in the form of droplets.
  5. Pump – to provide enough pressure to the irrigating water.
  6. Fertigation system – this is an arrangement that delivers water-soluble fertilisers to the crops.

Factors to consider when selecting micro-sprinklers

  1. The flow rate – the flow rate of the micro-sprinklers should cater to the soil infiltration rates. If the soil has poor infiltration, then it would be best to use micro-sprinklers with low flow rates.
  2. Insect prevention – insects can enter the nozzles and cause poor rotation affecting application uniformity. You can use micro-sprinklers with pop-up rotors to avoid this problem.
  3. Pressure of water – Normally there can be fluctuations in the water pressure resulting in uneven water distribution. You can use pressure compensated micro-sprinklers to curb this problem.
  4. Reliability – always select micro-sprinklers with a good reputation in the field to avoid low-quality sprinklers. Eunidrip offers high-quality micro-sprinklers that can be proven by the number of our clients.

FISH FARMING IN KENYA – EUNIDRIP IRRIGATION

Fish farming in Kenya involves rearing fish in tanks or enclosures for human consumption. It is an upcoming agricultural industry that keeps developing as time goes by. Fish farming in Kenya is mainly for local consumption, with a small percentage being exported. Fish are nutritious food rich in omega-three that help in brain development. We can classify fish into two main groups, i.e., fresh water and saltwater fish. Examples of freshwater fish in Kenya are tilapia and Nile perch, while examples of saltwater fish include crabs and octopus. Most freshwater fish farmers prefer to rear tilapia since it is disease resistant and has a high demand in the country.

Methods of fish farming in Kenya

There are four fishing methods that most Kenyan farmers use. These methods include:

  1. Freshwater pond fishing – this involves rearing freshwater fish in ponds. The ponds can be natural or artificial. You can use fertilisers under instructions from experts to grow plants in the water for the fish to feed.
  2. Integrated fish farming – it is the practice of mixing fish rearing with other animals and crops. The most common crop farmers use in this system is rice, while the animals you can keep include ducks. They have a symbiotic relationship with the animals feeding on the plants and the fish consuming the animal waste.
  3. Brackish finfish culture – fish farmers use this method to rear saltwater fish for hotels and restaurants. It is a rare method since most Kenyans prefer to eat freshwater fish.
  4. Mariculture fish – this method involves fishing practices in marine environments.

Use of dam liners in fish farming in Kenya.

The introduction of dam liners has helped increase inland fish farming in Kenya. Dam liners are waterproof and ultraviolet-treated materials that help hold the pond water. The UV treatment helps ensure the liners don’t get damaged by the sun. Manufacturers make dam liners from either fresh raw materials or recycled materials. Liners made from recycled materials have low quality and can cause harm to your fish. You can check on several traits to ensure you pick high-quality liners. These characteristics include:

  1. The scent – dam liners made from recycled materials will have a pungent smell. In contrast, liners from virgin materials have no scent.
  2. Smoothness – high-quality liners should be smooth throughout, unlike low-quality liners that are rough due to air pockets in the material.
  3. Floating test – a high-quality liner tends to float when you place it on the water surface, whereas poor-quality liners will sink.

Determination of pond and dam liner size.

The size of the pond you want to construct will depend on the type of farming, available capital, and area. You will need a lot of money and vast space to build your pond for commercial agriculture. In contrast, small-scale farmers need little capital and small areas. Once you have determined your pond size, the next step is determining the size of the liner. You will need the maximum length, width and depth of your pond. At Eunidirp, we have a team of experts to help you determine the right size for your pond.

Eunidrip Irrigation System dam liners

Our dam liners come with widths of 5, 7 and 8m and lengths of up to 100m. If the required dam liner has a width of more than 8m, we will need to carry out welding to join two dam liners. We have experienced staff who can accurately determine your liner’s size and carry out the welding process avoiding leakage incidents. Interested clients can visit us at George Morara Road, Nakuru town or contact us on 0728163329.

 

DAM LINER SUPPLIERS IN KENYA

Eunidrip Irrigation Systems is amongst the best dam liner suppliers in Kenya. Our dam liners are high-quality liners made from virgin materials that many farmers opt to use.

•dam liners in Kenya

Applications of dam liners.

Dam liners are applicable in very many situations around your home. Some of these applications include:

  1. In fish farming – dam liners are waterproof materials that will help you avoid infiltration when carrying out inland fish farming. Liner use for fish farming is beneficial in areas with sandy soils.
  2. In water harvesting – water reservoirs are lined with dam liners to help retain the water.
  3. Water treatment – this is the process of treating wastewater using large tanks. Wastewater contains a lot of harmful substances that can pollute underground water sources when they seep into the soil. Dam liners prevent seepage in these systems.
  4. Water tank repairs – concrete water tanks are susceptible to cracks with time. The reasons that can cause cracking in water tanks are shifts in the soil beneath the tank and expansion and contraction of the tank. The development of cracks leads to leakages and bacteria growth in the gaps. Dam liners help in repairing cracks on the tank.
  5. Geothermal stations – these stations utilize steam as a working fluid. Dam liners help prevent leakages in the system.

Factors affecting the choice of dam liners.

Our dam liners come with 0.3, 0.5, 0.75, and 1 mm thicknesses. Selection of the wrong thickness from dam liner suppliers in Kenya can lead to tears and leakages. The factors to consider when selecting dam liners are:

  1. The nature of the soil – areas with a stony surface will need the 1mm dam liner, whereas regions with fine soils can use liners of 0.3 mm.
  2. The volume of water – the quantity of water that the liner will hold plays a significant role in determining the thickness. Large volumes of water will need thick dam liners to support the weight. Small volumes of water can use thinner liners.
  3. The expected lifetime of the dam liner – 1 mm dam liners tends to last longer than 0.3 mm liners.
  4. Economics – the thicker the liner, the more the costs. The available capital for the farmers will determine which dam liners they choose.

Advantages of dam liners.

  1. Dam liners are both corrosion and ultraviolet resistant.
  2. They are impervious, avoiding water infiltration.
  3. They are cost-effective for storing water compared to concrete tanks.
  4. Dam liners are easy to maintain and repair.

Cost of Eunidrip dam liners.

The available dam liners’ costs at our shop are as follows.

Dam liner prices in Kenya

Pawpaw irrigation

PAWPAW IRRIGATION – EUNIDRIP

PAWPAW IRRIGATION – EUNIDRIP

 

Pawpaws are nutritious fruits rich in vitamins that do well in areas receiving an average rainfall of about 1000 mm per year. It is best to use irrigation to supplement the rainfall in areas with insufficient rainfall. The three methods you can use for pawpaw irrigation are rain hose irrigation, rain gun sprinklers, and button dripper irrigation. Pawpaw irrigation using a rain hose is very useful when the plants are in the nursery. The rain hose delivers the required amounts of water and nutrients to the young plants. The rain gun sprinkler is also an effective way of watering pawpaws. However, the rain gun sprinkler uses a lot of water, and you will need a pump to achieve the required water pressures. The addition of a pump means increased operating costs.

At Eunidrip, we advise farmers to use button dripper irrigation for their pawpaws. Fully grown pawpaws need an average of 4.5 liters of water in a week. Button drips can deliver water up to a rate of 60 litres per hour, making them suitable for pawpaw irrigation. Adjustable button drippers enable you to control the discharge to the plants. We sell button drippers at a cost of KES 25 per piece, and the drippers are easy to fit into the 16 mm HDPE pipe.

Components of a pawpaw button drip irrigation system.

  1. The mainline and submain line – the mainline transports water from the tank to the submain line. The diameter of the mainline is usually larger than the other pipes in the system. The submain line delivers water from the main pipe to the 16 mm HDPE pipe lateral.
  2. Button drips – the main types of button drips in our shop are the adjustable and non-adjustable button drips. These button drips come with thicknesses of 1 and 1.3 mm. The 1mm thick button drip is more suitable for temporary usage due to its short service life. The 1.3 mm thick button drippers can endure the harsh environment and tend to last longer.
  3. Filters – to remove particles that can potentially clog the button drips.
  4. Fittings and accessories.

Why choose button drip irrigation for your pawpaws.

The initial set-up cost of a button drip irrigation can be relatively high, and many farmers would ask themselves why they should spend all that money. At Eunidrip, we can assure you that with proper maintenance, your irrigation system will significantly increase your yields. Some of the other advantages you acquire when using this pawpaw irrigation method are;

  1. Button drip irrigation delivers water to the root zone, helping in controlling weeds.
  2. There is an efficient application of fertiliser and water, saving on costs.
  3. Button drip system uses gravity to deliver water, saving on operating costs.
  4. A button dripper internal design reduces the chances of clogging.

ONION DRIP IRRIGATION KIT

ONION DRIP IRRIGATION KIT

Onion irrigation

Eunidrip Irrigation Systems is among the best suppliers of onion rip irrigation kit in the country. Onions are crops that are sensitive to the amount of water they receive. They have shallow roots that require constant and regulated amounts of water. Too much water will result in fungal diseases and rot, whereas too little water will cause a decrease in quality and onion size. Onions need about 2.4 cm of water once per week for optimum yields. Drip irrigation is the best way to apply water to the onions.

Components of onion drip irrigation kit

Onion rip irrigation kit components are:

  1. The pipe network – this piping network delivers water from the tank to the drip lines. The pipes can be PVC or HDPE pipes. HDPE pipes are more suitable for systems with pipes on the surface since they are UV-treated.
  2. Drip tapes – drip tapes have equally spaced emitters along their lengths. Onions use drip tapes having an emitter spacing of 20 cm. It would be best to use three drip lines per bed in onion growing.
  3. Water filters – filters help remove contaminants from the irrigation water. Emitters are sensitive to the quality of water and particles can cause them to clog. Water filters available for use in your irrigation unit are disc and screen filters. At Eunidrip, we have professional staff that can guide you when selecting your filter.
  4. Fittings and accessories – an onion drip irrigation kit uses fittings made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or high-density polyethene (HDPE). Our staff can guide you in selecting the accessories you will need. Some of the fittings you will need in such a system are couplings, elbows, tees, saddle clamps, adaptors, and end caps.
  5. 16 mm HDPE fittings – these fittings consist of 16mm tees, elbows, end caps, starter connectors, off-takes, and drip to drip connectors. You use them on connections involving the drip tape.
  6. Tank – the tank stores water for irrigation at a raised height. The base should be strong enough to support the weight of the tank. The size of the tank will depend on the area to be irrigated.
  7. Fertigation system – this arrangement composes of a tank, venturi injector, and some fittings. The main purpose of this system is to deliver diluted fertiliser to the main pipe of the drip system.

Advantages of using drip irrigation on your onions.

  1. There are reduced pumping costs since the system uses water efficiently.
  2. Improved crop health – the onions get the right amount of water and nutrients ensuring high quality and quantity yields.
  3. The labour costs incurred when hiring people to water your onions are reduced.
  4. Drip irrigation delivers water to the root zone of the onions helping in controlling weed growth.
  5. The fertigation system helps avoid the harmful effects of fertiliser overuse. Examples of the harmful effects are pollution of underground water sources, acidification of the soil, and toxic build-up of harmful metals in the soil.

At Eunidrip, we offer supply, design, and install full onion drip irrigation kits for our clients. Interested customers can make purchases through our online shop or our physical shop located at George Morara Road, Nakuru town.  In case of any inquiry, you can contact us on 0728163329.

 

RAIN HOSE IRRIGATION

RAIN HOSE IRRIGATION

RAIN HOSE IRRIGATION

Rain hose irrigation uses a flexible hose with small holes to deliver water to your crops. The pipe is UV treated making it suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Rain hose manufacturers use nano punching technology to make the holes on the pipe. The rain hose can emit water at a uniform rate at every pore. At Eunidrip Irrigation Systems, we have rain hoses with diameters of 32, 40, and 50 mm. Each rain hose irrigates in opposite direction at varying radii. The wetting radius of the 32, 40, and 50 mm rain hoses are 3, 5, and 7 meters respectively.

Rain hose irrigation is suitable for short crops or crops in nurseries. You should not use this irrigation method for crops prone to fungal infections when their leaves are exposed to water. Examples of such crops are lettuce, beans, chili, tomatoes, etc.

Some of the advantages of using this irrigation method are:

  1. This irrigation method is cheaper than other methods of overhead irrigation.
  2. They are easy to install and maintain.
  3. It requires less capital to start than drip irrigation.
  4. They can cover wide areas.

Components of a rain hose irrigation kit

The components of the rain hose irrigation kit are:

  1. Endcaps – to seal off the rain hose ends.
  2. Starter connectors – you use them to connect the rain hose to the main water line.
  3. Mini valves – you use them in place of starter connectors to connect the rain hose to the main water line.
  4. Pipe connectors – to join the rain hoses.

Rain hose irrigation layout procedure.

The first step is to lay down the main pipe from the pump or tank on the farm. In the next step, you make holes on the main pipe depending on the location you want your rain hose. The diameter of the hole should be guided by the size of starter connectors or mini valves. Place the starter connectors or mini valves on the holes and connect the rain hose to them. Use pipe connectors to join two rain hoses if need be. Finally, close off the rain hose ends with an endcap.

STEEL GREENHOUSES – EUNIDRIP IRRIGATION SYSTEMS

Greenhouses are structures that help farmers control the growing environment of the crops. These structures can either be made from wood, plastic, or steel. Eunidrip irrigation systems is a company renowned for its quality steel greenhouses. These greenhouses can be automated, increasing the efficiency of operations. Factors that you can control automatically inside the greenhouse include temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, water, pests, light, and nutrients.  

Greenhouse Steel Structures

Selection of the size and design of steel greenhouses.

Two major factors determine the size of the greenhouse you select, i.e., the space available and the cost. Large greenhouses will need more money than small greenhouses. The smallest greenhouse we can build measures 4 m by 5 m. The available steel greenhouse designs are saw tooth, gable, raised dome, flat arch, and tunnel. The designs vary depending on the outcomes you desire inside the greenhouse. Our staff can easily advise you on which design to use for your greenhouse. 

Why should you choose steel greenhouses over wood greenhouses?

The following are reasons why you should choose our steel greenhouses;

  1. Steel-framed greenhouses are not affected by rotting or termite attacks.
  2. Steel has high strength, meaning you can use smaller pieces than in wood greenhouses. 
  3. These greenhouses last for a long time.
  4. They are easy to maintain. 
  5. The steel frame uses small elements, reducing shade in the greenhouse.

Steel greenhouses materials

You will need the following material to build your steel greenhouses.

  1. Greenhouse covering – you should use greenhouse polythene since it is cheap and easy to repair. The greenhouse polythene can be clear or yellow-green.  
  2. Profiles and wires hold the greenhouse polythene tightly on the frame.
  3. Tapping screws – you need these to bolt the profiles to the steel frame. 
  4. Steel pipes – to form the frame of the entire greenhouse.
  5. Locks – to lock the greenhouse door.
  6. Concrete – for strengthening the greenhouse foundation.
  7. Insect net – to allow air into the greenhouse while keeping insects away.
