Citruses with Micro Sprinklers

  • Colombia
  • Citruses – Lemon and Orange

Colombia has enormous potential to develop its citrus export industry, supplying markets in North and Central America and the Caribbean that together have close to 100m consumers.

Colombia’s diverse microclimates, fertile soil, climate and ability to adapt to promising new varieties mean it could supply markets such as the Caribbean and Asia with citrus during periods when other countries are not producing.

The country’s citrus industry is evolving rapidly, not just in terms of planted area but also productivity, especially in Persian limes (also known as Tahiti Lime) which of high demand and used in the preparation of cocktails, ceviche, dressings, guacamole and other typical Mexican food.

This is the prospects behind this large Citruses project of 450 Hectares (Oranges and Persian limes) – the largest and most complex so far done by   NaanDan Peru in Colombia.

The complexity of the project is due to the challenging topographical mountain terrain, which requires tailor made infrastructure solutions. 

The irrigation solution chosen is the Under-tree Micro sprinkler AquaSmart 2002 – an excellent flow regulated micro sprinkler that guarantee Uniform irrigation and fertigation in all topographical conditions.

Among its advantages:

  • Wide range of flow rates and distribution patterns
  • Insect-proof nozzle
  • Sturdy and solid structure
  • Easy to dismantle and assemble
  • Innovative spike with locking clip and water-stop aid
  • Deflector helps prevent wetting of tree trunks
  • Special swivel (green) for inverted operation
  • Two-stage wetted diameter control
  • Clog resistant even at lowest flow rates
