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.
Dragon-Line significantly reduces evaporation, soil compaction, and eliminates wind drift.
This is a unique and efficient way to irrigate, and we are fortunate to have the CEO of Dragon-Line, Monty Teeter, helping us understand this process.
In this session, you will learn:
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.
