A drip tape is the polythene made tube or flexible pipe used for the passing of water to the root zones of crops in a drip irrigation system.
A drip tape is the most important component of a typical drip irrigation system. Without the drip tape, the drip irrigation system cannot work.
The drip tape often has emitters manufactured on it. The emitters function as the device used for the dripping of water in a trickle manner to the roots of plants.
Drip tapes work with low water pressure.
The drip tape is manufactured from polythene, a derivative of crude oil.
Drip tapes are usually installed on the surface of the soil and beside rows of crops. Drip tapes can also be installed few inches below the surface of the soil. This is for sub-surface drip irrigation system.
A drip tape can also be called a T-tape is a component of a typical micro-irrigation system. Drip tapes are the improved version of microtubings.

Characteristics of a drip tape
A typical drip tape has a lot of characteristics. These characteristics determine what a drip tape can be used for.
The following are some of the characteristics of a drip tape:
Diameter: The inner and outer diameters of a drip tape are some of the attributes a buyer should look out for.
The commonest drip tapes in Nigeria are the types with a diameter of 16mm. Some small scale farmers in Nigeria also buy drip tapes of diameter of 12mm.
Thickness: the thickness of a drip tape is measured in mils or millimeters. Most of the drip tapes in Nigeria come in thicknesses of 0.20mm and 0.30mm.
Never buy drip tapes based on the thickness alone. Some drip tapes are very thick but they will not last long on your farm. After a few weeks, they may brittle and get bad.
Length: The length of a drip tape is measured in meters. A drip tape can be 2000 meters long, it can also be 1,500 meters long.
Some drip tapes can be as short as 100 metres. In Nigeria, the commonest lengths are 1,500 metres and 2,000 metres.
Emitter Spacing: Most of the drip tapes sold in Nigeria including our brand come with pre-installed inline emitters.
The emitters are placed on the drip tapes at equal distances. These distances can be 10cm, 20cm, 30cm, 50cm or 60cm.
Type of materials used: We only sell drip tapes manufactured with virgin materials. Some drip tapes are also manufactured with recycled materials; these are often times of low quality.
Pressure Compensation: This is how a drip tape will emit water in spite of the topography of the farmland. Some drip tapes are pressure compensating; this means that the drip tapes will emit same quantity of water to plants in spite of the topography of the land.
Benefits of using a drip tape for irrigation
Using drip tapes for irrigation can increase crop yield significantly. We have customers who have increased their yield by as much as 200% because they used drip tapes for irrigating their crops.
A drip tape can also allow farmers to engage in all year round farming. With all year round farming, farmers can significantly increase their yield.
Drip tapes are also water efficient unlike other types of irrigation.
With drip tapes, farmers can pass their fertilizers and chemicals to plants through the process called fertigation and chemigation. Fertigation can increase the yield of crops whilst also reducing the need for labour.
Drip tapes also reduces the weed pressure on farmlands as they only pass water to the root zones of crops not everywhere on the farmland like sprinklers.

Other components that can be used alongside a drip tape
The following are some of the components of a typical drip irrigation system that can be used alongside a drip tape:
Connectors: These are the small devices used for the connection of drip tapes to the sub-main hose or pipes.
End Plugs: These are the small devices used to plug the end of the drip tapes. The end plugs prevent water from wasting away from the drip tapes.
Venturi Injector: This is the device used for the injection of fertilizers and chemicals into the drip tapes.

How to Make Drip Tapes Last Longer
The following ways are how to make drip irrigation tapes last longer:

- Use the appropriate water pressure level
- Do not fertigate insoluble fertilizers or chemicals
- Ensure that you flush the drip tapes regularly
- Do not cut the drip tapes with cutlasses, hoes, tractors or any other cutting implement or machine.
