As the season draws to a close, water conservation continues to be a hot topic. One of the best technologies available today for water conservation is drip irrigation on center pivots for farming. 

This process has put farmland previously removed from production (due to insufficient water) back in production. In addition, it increases yields, significantly reduces evaporation, soil compaction, and eliminates wind drift. 

Our guest this week, Monty Teeter, will share successes from the past season and take us through some of his many recent achievements. It is a webinar you do not want to miss. 

Dragon-Line mobile drip irrigation combines center pivot irrigation and drip irrigation technology for agricultural irrigation. Dragon-Line patented technology combines surface drip irrigation efficiency with the flexibility and economics of mechanized irrigation systems. 

Dragon-Line is an orange drip-line tubing co-extruded from a blend of high-quality PE resin. The pressure compensating emitters are continuous self-flushing, welded to the drip line’s internal wall, and fully operation at seven psi. 

Dragon-Line Emitter Tubing is attached to Dragon Flex Hose, which drags on the soil surface, thus the name “Dragon-Line.” As Dragon-Line is pulled behind the system, the emitters deliver a uniform water pattern across the irrigated area’s full length.

During this presentation, you will learn:

  1. How you can benefit from mobile drip irrigation
  2. Learn about successes growers had during the past season
  3. Why mobile drip irrigation is so successful
  4. Where mobile drip irrigation is most advantageous to use.

Chief Executive Officer at DRAGON-LINE, L.L.C.

Monty started in the Irrigation Industry in 1972, working for an Irrigation company that manufactured and delivered irrigation piping and products throughout the central United States. He started his own business in 1977 in his garage with three hundred dollars at 24.

He has been a distributor, designer, and installer of center pivots for 40 plus years, and has experience in SDI (Sub-Surface Drip Irrigation) for 20 plus years. This experience of selling more than 3,500 pivots and thousands of acres of SDI in his businesses has allowed Monty to understand the technologies and benefits of both irrigation applications. With the perseverance of the concept of mobile drip irrigation, Monty developed and designed Dragon -Line, the Orange Mobile Drip Irrigation, which combines the efficiency of drip irrigation with the flexibility and economics of pivot irrigation. While living during this time of the drastic decline of freshwater reserves, and feeding a growing population worldwide, Monty has always strived to find solutions and innovations for the industry, thus earning the Irrigation Innovation Award from the Irrigation Association for 2019. Today, he will share his vision with us about “How to make every drop of water count!” and the benefits of Mobile Drip Irrigation.
