The story of FIN-Tape began 10 years ago with a dairy farmers desire to apply water without the frustration of hot gusty Norwest wind slowing rotary irrigators and seeing precious water blow away from the grass that needs it.
On a trip to Texas USA, ten years ago, we saw a field of cotton being irrigated by underground drip irrigation tape, the cotton was lush and growing strong in the Texas heat.
Research revealed a range of drip tape technologies utilising different ways to regulate even water drip rates along the length of tape, some more effective than others.
The initial visit to a factory in California to see this tough polypropylene tape and to purchase a trial lot grew to leasing a factory in San Joaquin, setting up extrusion moulds to make FIN-Tape, the unique high quality, impact resistant, labyrinth style drip tape, designed to drip water with 99% uniformity.
8 Ha section installed with FIN-Tape at 1000 ml centres 250 ml deep and sown with a rye/clover pasture mix on 11th November 2012.
The founder and designer of this unique drip technology began his first production run some 25 years ago in Israel; his name is Mr Gideon Gilead. We can thank him for bringing a dream to reality for our benefit today.
