Myth 1: Unreasonable irrigation system. Drip irrigation flow, users often can not see the irrigation process, if irrigation time is too long, will produce deep leakage of waste; if irrigation time is too short, the roots will be water stress. Knowing the irrigation intensity, the water requirement of plant and the soil water holding in the field can better be irrigated according to the plant needs. It is also borne in mind that irrigation cycles and irrigation quantities are adjusted according to the climatic and different growth phases of plants, and that the same irrigation system cannot always be used.
Myth 2: Use the wrong head. The drop head is usually divided into two types, pressure compensation and non-pressure compensation. Although the pressure compensation type is expensive, but the effect is better. First, the pressure compensation drops can ensure that every drop of water is evenly distributed, fertilization irrigation uniformity. Second, some pressure compensation drops can plug the head of debris wash out, and some pressure compensation type of head flow is very large, reducing the likelihood of plug-drop.
Myth 3: Lack of filtration equipment. Many users mistakenly believe that wells do not need to be filtered, whereas in fact wells often contain coarse sand, fine sand and some chemicals, clogging the head.
Myth 4: No fertilization through the drip irrigation system. The greatest advantage of drip irrigation is the simultaneous application of water and fertilizer. The plant roots grow to water and fertilizer, and the fertilizer is most efficient with irrigation water.
Myth 5: Lack of daily maintenance drip irrigation system needs to be carefully maintained to play the optimum performance. A conditional unit should often flush the drip irrigation tubes to ensure the flow of the equipment. According to the actual needs, we can consider the use of effective chemical treatment periodically.
Myth 6: No pressure gauge and flow meter. These simple devices can help users to "pulse" the irrigation system to solve the problem of drip irrigation systems that cannot be judged accurately by the naked eye. Using pressure gauge to detect the pressure of the head, middle and bottom of drip tube of drip irrigation, the problem of drip irrigation system can be judged by comparing the historical situation of design pressure or water pressure. Flowmeter can help users to quickly determine the flow of water, in addition, flow data can help to calculate the actual flow and irrigation system of historical flow situation.
Myth 7: Mistaken for all the quality of the tube is the same. Different drip irrigation tubes have different quality of raw materials, production process and patented technology, and more importantly, different brands of pipe drop-head structure design is different. Should choose to provide uniform fertilizer, with resistance to blocking performance, long life, easy to install and maintain the drip tubes.
Myth 8: Ignore the long run costs. Drip irrigation system is often used for more than 10 years or more than 20 years, irrigation of millions of cubic meters of water and fertilizer, so consider the uniformity of irrigation, pumping station operating costs and day-to-day maintenance costs are very important. A well-designed system can reduce the cost of later running through its good uniformity or energy saving. In addition, some vendors have a lot of experience and proprietary technology that can guide users to choose the right irrigation system and provide help in running and maintaining the system.
