Why Sprinkler Irrigation?
Banana trees require a large amount of water year-round, so your irrigation system has a big responsibility in determining the number of flowers and fruit you can produce, and the size and quality of these yields.
On top of this, the system needs to be durable enough to withstand possible wear from other operations such as harvesting and spraying. Larger plantations also need a low maintenance irrigation system that helps keep the entire operation running as smoothly as possible.
Senninger sprinklers are designed to make irrigation easier and more efficient. Our multi-functional sprinklers’ durable designs and flexibility provide:
- Wide Coverage Area
Wider spacing at low flows can reduce the number of sprinklers and fittings per acre/hectare.
- Durable Design
Sprinklers can sustain weight of over 180 lbs. and have changeable nozzles that can be easily replaced.
Sprinklers can be cemented to PVC to avoid theft since the sprinkler body is independent of the nozzle.
- Smooth & Stable Operation
Sprinklers won’t break your pipe connections due to excessive vibration.
- Larger Nozzles Sizes
No need for sophisticated filtration systems.
- Ideal Droplet Size
Sprinklers distribute water in larger droplets resistant to wind-drift and evaporative losses.
20 Series Impact
Success in the Field
Senninger has been working together with banana growers since 1977. Our sprinklers have allowed smaller and large-scale producers obtain an average of 2,500 a 2,800 boxes of banana yield per hectare across Latin America and other producing regions.
Through our many years working with this crop, we have helped install brand new systems for upcoming plantations and retrofit existing irrigation systems to help producers increase production. Several large-scale growers told us that after upgrading to Senninger sprinklers they noticed:
- Improved water infiltration
- Reduced water loss via evaporation
- The ability to decompose organic materials in the field
- Reduced energy consumptions costs
- Stronger root development
- Lower system maintenance costs
