Fruit trees’ button emmitter drips:
These kind of drip systems are very favourable for tree crops because they have a wider reach. Though expensive to set up, they’ll pay for themselves in the long run given the perennial nature of the crops. You can also use it in coffee trees and end up getting at least 30kgs of good quality berries per tree.
See the set up in the following banana crop and passion fruits:
SOURCE: YOUNG FARMERS GROUP.
Nb: You can buy the individual components and set it up. It is very easy. However, you may need to involve an irrigation expert like us if you are doing large scale.
Tentative calculations shows it costs around 200/= to set up this kind of drip around one tree. With sufficient water and good nutrition, the output from such trees is as follows:
a) Passion fruits – you’ll harvest 1 kg of fruits weekly, hence 52kgs per year *80.00 per kg total 4200. With good care of the crop, you will harvest this crop for 4 years.
b) Oranges – 500 fruits per tree per year @ 10.00 = 5,000. For oranges, the set up will cost 450-500 per tree
c) Bananas – 4 bunches per year @ 600 shillings = 2,400. Set up for bananas likely to be 300-400 per tree.
d) Coffee – output 30 kgs tree @ 70.00 total 2100. Set up for coffee likely to cost 300-400 per tree.
With good care, you will harvest the oranges and coffee for a very long time.
