Big savings on water
Drip irrigation provides highly efficient delivery of water to the roots, ensuring palm trees grow to their full potential. When growing in very hot climates where evapotranspiration is extremely high, water efficiency is critical. In fact, precision irrigation uses 45% less water than the flood in date palms irrigation.
Decrease humidity and prevent disease
High humidity in your date palm orchard is a one-way ticket to fungal and leaf diseases such as Graphiola leaf spot (Graphiola phoenicis Moug. Poit.). High humidity also affects date quality during the maturation process, with fruits becoming soft and sticky. Drip irrigation avoids excess moisture, ultimately reducing spraying requirements and increasing fruit quality.
