Fresno, Calif.-based Netafim USA has joined with Hastings, Neb.-based T-L Irrigation to offer a hybrid center-pivot drip irrigation system.
The Precision Mobile Drop irrigation platform uses T-L's hydrostatically powered center-pivot system with Netafim's drip technology, according to a news release.
Under the arrangement, Netafim will be the exclusive provider of drip technology for the patented system and also acquires exclusive North American rights to commercialize the product.
The new drip system can be used on all new or used pivot or linear-move irrigation systems.
The PDMI system consists of Netafim driplines pulled through the field by a center-pivot or lateral-move irrigation system.
As the lines are pulled behind the system, the integrated emitters deliver a uniform water pattern across the full length of the irrigated area.
