The biggest expense is the filtration, SDI needs to be filtered down to 120 to 160 mesh depending on the emitter size.
A lot of my Neighbors are starting to put Drip tape on there pivots, they already have invested in the Pivot, now it is just an addition to the pivot, Here they are seeing a 15%yield increase on there Alfalfa, the malt barley field have yielded the same. there are still 2 pivots of sugar beets and 2 pivots of navy beans left to be harvested, and a field of corn silage.
they re did the gallonage and pressure on there pivot, they went from 875gpm to 700gpm and the pressure has been lowered down to 20 psi at the pivot center. The drip tape only need 5-8psi to operate,
I have pictures, i am trying to get them posted
