New Aqua-Traxx® FlowControl™ Drip Tape

Toro's latest innovation will change the face of irrigation. Taking control of an irrigation system’s flow rate has been expensive and time-consuming for growers, until now. Trusted to bring you the best in drip tape solutions, Toro is proud to announce their newest product, Aqua-Traxx® FlowControl™ Drip Tape.

Designed to give you the best of both worlds with optimal features of a pressure-compensating tape and non-pressure compensating tape, FlowControl offers more uniform irrigation for any terrain and the flexibility to control the overall system flow rate.

For years, growers have dealt with irrigation technology that is unable to consistently water uneven, sloped and hilly terrain – trying to achieve a healthy crop at low and high elevations can prove challenging. With new Aqua-Traxx FlowControl technology, growers can move away from poor performance irrigation systems, start to meet market demands and be prepared for unpredictable weather patterns.

While standard drip tapes offer growers the ability to apply water and fertiliser efficiently, uniformity is sacrificed over longer runs and uneven ground. But with FlowControl’s unmatched durability, clog resistance, and precision placement of valuable water and fertiliser, longer runs are now made easier with better uniformity in steeply sloping fields resulting to higher quality yields for growers.

The innovation behind FlowControl allows growers with difficult terrain and changing elevations to get the most out of their yields, without the additional cost. Before, growers that wanted consistency and quality over their challenging terrain had to resort to expensive heavy wall pressure-compensating drip lines with closer emitter spacing. But with a wide range of available thicknesses compared to pressure-compensating drip lines, FlowControl provides a cost effective solution for those farming on challenging terrain. The ability to run FlowControl over long distances also reduces set up costs.

“Maximising crop yield and quality has a lot to do with irrigation application uniformity. Using Aqua-Traxx FlowControl gives the grower a valuable tool to help improve the irrigation uniformity”, says Robert Aitken, Toro Australia’s National Technical Services Manager.

Aqua-Traxx FlowControl is available in wide range of wall thicknesses, offering one price point for any emitter spacing between 15 and 60 cm – providing growers with their desirable wetting pattern, without the extra costs.

You can count on Toro Aqua-Traxx PBX & Aqua-Traxx FlowControl Premium Drip Tape for every application to help you take control of your irrigation. A new level of uniformity and efficiency for any grower’s farm, offering complete control of the flow, no matter the terrain.
