This Pecan nut plantation project of 30 Hectares was done from A to Z by NaanDanJain Mexico.
The project is located in Chihuahua, Mexico – where Pecan nut growing has a long history and is a leading and highly profitable crop. Maintaining this profitable crop is becoming challenging in this region as Water shortage become a pressing issue.
Adopting advanced, efficient irrigation solution is the only way for farmers to survive, and this is exactly the solution provided by the TalDrip, here using a Sub-surface installation.
Sub Surface Drip irrigation provides a tailormade solution for the Pecan orchards:
Nut plantations usually cover a large area with lots of movement of animals, which can damage equipment and systems laid out on the ground surface.
Moreover, in many plantations, there is ever increasing use of agricultural machines at every growing stage.
Burying the dripper lines in the ground makes life easier because the surface is clear for the easy passage of machinery and ongoing work.
Dripper lines can be very long – which is an advantage which saves installation time and labor in large plantations such as this one.
Additional advantages are:
• The ability to work at low flow rates
• water saving
• Maintaining a continuous wetted strip along the line of trees
• Optimal method for fertilizing the trees
• Avoiding wetting the tree trunk and helps reduce humidity, which prevents rotting disease and weed growth.
