Sumisansui Irrigation System in Nigeria (Rain Hose Irrigation System)

The Sumisansui irrigation system is a type of irrigation system that uses rain hoses or spray tubes to spray droplets of water to plants. The Sumisansui irrigation system works like sprinklers as it sprinkles water to plants and the soil surface.

The Sumisansui hoses ensure uniform discharge of water to plants for long distances. This type of irrigation system works with low pressure unlike most sprinklers. Sumisansui hoses can work with as low as 0.8 bar water pressure.

The Sumisansui hose is made of polythene with perforations. The perforations or holes on the Sumisansui hose serves as the emitters for spraying of water droplets. The polythene material is usually UV resistant.

The Sumisansui irrigation system comes in hoses of 100 metres, 50 metres and 200 metres etc. The Sumisansui irrigation system is usually used for nurseries, oil palm farming, rubber plantation and general crop cultivation.
