All irrigation system can not be thesame,it depends on your farm size, topography, source of water e.t.c I will try to show different irrigation system with different source of water. Hmmmm this will be a long thread...

I will start with my own, though a little bit old school grin, I will also show new school too. If you want to install irrigation system,this should come to your mind, your water source and farm topography. After that, design how (sketch) the system will look like.this is My own sketch below

Next, make ridges and measure the length to know how many pvc pip you are buying, NOTE PVC pipe can be substitute with flat hose but am not going there now. Am using 2 inch pipe as an example, and there is two type light and strong. If you can afford strong buy it.

Buy saw should Incase you will need to cut the pipe for adjustment, also PVC gum, socket and elbow if your system require it

Re: Irrigation System Installation And Kit by Farmerakinloye6(m): 2:38pm On Nov 10, 2020
This is the function of socket, but you will not need it if your system is new, unless you have burst pipe. All new pipe (one side) come with socket mouth.

Re: Irrigation System Installation And Kit by Farmerakinloye6(m): 2:44pm On Nov 10, 2020
Function of elbow below, which also not compulsory unless your system require it.

Re: Irrigation System Installation And Kit by Farmerakinloye6(m): 3:00pm On Nov 10, 2020
Filter is compulsory especially if your water source is river or stream, if you don't use dirty will always clog your emitter. There is big one and small

knot the end with pieces Baboo or use end plug,both serve thesame purpose. I recommend end plug if you can afford it, though am using the manual one (knot)at the moment.

Any pumping machine will do.. it hose that will suffer it, you will need to buy 400 meters hose. Below pix, some are even 700 to 800 meters from water.

to my knowledge there is 3 type of flat hose; blue hose@100meters 18k, black hose@100 meters 36k and green hose 29k here in akure. At the moment am using green hose because it is thick and can also serve black hose function.
