Additionally, we educate farmers on the finest agricultural techniques that will increase harvests.
Tomato drip irrigation
The ideal irrigation method for tomatoes is drip irrigation since there is no water contact with the leaves. An excessive amount of wetness on tomato leaves is a precursor to fungi that cause early and late blight. Avoid using systems like rain gun sprinklers, impact sprinklers, rain hose kits, and pivots for overhead watering.
The most effective way to supply tomatoes with water and nutrients is by drip irrigation. A tiny, foldable tube with a 34-inch diameter is used to water plants gradually without soaking the leaves. Drip tape is buried 1 to 2 inches deep and is typically 8 to 10 millimeters thick. The normal dripper or emitter spacing ranges from 4 to 12 inches. Each row of tomatoes needs a single drip line that is spaced about two inches away from the plant. Drip tapes have various flow rates. Most growers use a medium-flow tape, which provides 0.5 gpm per 100 feet. High-flow tape, which produces 0.8 to 1.0 gpm, can shorten watering times and minimize clogging.
The ability to fertigate, or inject water-soluble nutrients into the irrigation system, is a distinguishing benefit of drip irrigation. Instead of applying all of the nutrients at once, either during or before planting, this method enables nutrients or water to be provided as the crop grows.
Onion drip irrigation
The most uncomplicated technique to get good yields and consistent bulbs from onions is to often water them because they have a shallow root system. Because of this, drip irrigation is an obvious choice for onion farmers. With precise watering, you can achieve consistency and get rid of the disease in onion plants. For a productive harvest, onions need around 30 inches of water every season. This is why all Kenyan commercial onion producers are required to use a drip irrigation method.
To obtain the optimum results, the secret is to give your onions around 0.4 inches of water each day. Only a drip irrigation system can accomplish this on your property. Your onions will receive the appropriate quantity of water thanks to drip irrigation, which delivers little amounts of water to the roots of the plants. Onion plants should constantly have adequate soil moisture, especially when the bulb begins to develop. When the onion season is through, you’ll have a fantastic crop thanks to good moisture.
Using drip irrigation to irrigate your onions can also help you prevent infections caused by too much water that are water-borne. A lot of water is bad for onions, especially where the bulb is concerned. The greatest approach to make sure your onions receive the optimal watering for yield improvement, disease prevention, and water conservation is by drip irrigation.

Why Drip Lines for Tomatoes and Onions
Give your market the greatest quality possible.
Drip irrigation keeps the soil consistently wet, which controls excessive root development and lowers the chance of bulbs splitting.
Since onion plants have a shallow, fibrous root system, rain ultimately pushes fertilizers given early in the season below the root zone, rendering the nutrients inaccessible to the crop. With precise fertigation, nutrients are consistently delivered, always reach the roots, and waste is removed.
More yield with fewer illnesses.
When water is irrigated using a drip, it reaches the roots first, drying the leaves. Lack of leaf moisture dramatically lowers the incidence of foliar diseases like Peronospora and Downey Mildew, reducing crop loss and promoting up to 30% greater yields.
Phosphorus application that is efficient.
To thrive, onions require soluble phosphorus, yet phosphorus has little mobility in soil. As a result, while utilizing precision fertigation, you may apply consistent tiny amounts as close to the active root hairs as feasible, increasing the plant’s phosphorus uptake.
