The initial test site offered enough space to irrigate approximately 60 trees, shrubs, and vines. We received very positive feedback from our partners in Nairobi about the ease of installation, practical use of the kits, and the high quality of all the components. Since then we have been able to extend the initial site, firstly to trial and demonstrate our 340 Plant Drip Kit, and since then we have further expanded to test our most recently developed 500 Plant Drip Kit.
At the site we are growing a mixed crop with some of the most popular fruit and vegetable crops in Kenya which include spinach, kale, potatoes, peppers and other salad crops, and watermelons. When crops are harvested they are donated to a local community school to ensure that the children all receive two nutritous and filling meals each day.
We offer two different hose colours in both our Distribution Hose (large) and Lateral Hose (small) in a choice of black or white. The white hose is desert grade and has been developed to reflect the sun's rays and maintain a cooler temperature of the water in the hose. We also offer a black hose which is ideal for customers who prefer a more subtle look to their layout. Both hose colours also have a black core which acts as a barrier to light to reduce algae growth.
