Addressing the diverse operational and environmental needs of today's modern growers, Netafim has unveiled PolyNet, a high-performance, flexible, lightweight, cost-effective piping solution for above and belowground agricultural drip irrigation systems.

Utilizing an advanced, collapsible design, the product is an innovative mainline and sub-mainline piping solution that enables growers to easily install, recoil and relocate a drip irrigation system for use in an alternate field or different configuration.

Featuring leakage-free lateral connectors and integrated welded outlets, spaced according to customer requirements, the system's advanced design provides growers with an easy-to-assemble, precise water delivery solution that lowers labor and maintenance costs, increases water savings and improves crop performance potential through enhanced system performance.

Additionally, the cost (per acre) of this drip irrigation system is substantially less than a belowground PVC system, giving producers more options when deciding on a system that is the right fit for their operation.

"A perfect complement to our singular focus of providing reliable, simple and affordable irrigation solutions to help today's farmers address the challenges of an increasingly complex industry, this new product enables farmers to reap the benefits of a drip irrigation system in areas where flexibility is essential," said Ze'ev Barylka, director of marketing for Netafim USA.

Available in a wide range of diameters, the piping system’s thermostatic collapsible irrigation pipe is constructed from rugged premium polyethylene materials that are designed to be versatile and durable enough to withstand the weight of heavy field machinery as well as the most stringent environmental conditions.

Requiring no specialized installation tools, it is equipped with a connector kit and an array of branching and lateral fittings, making it compatible with any Netafim on-surface or subsurface (SDI) irrigation system.  FG
