In a country where water is scarce, the need for water-saving irrigation is a must.
In the ’60s, the first plastic drip emitter was tested in Israel after the invention of Simcha Blass and his son Yeshayahu.
Since then, the irrigation business flourished while other countries found great interest in drip irrigation equipment.
After the first company, “Netafim,” established in kibbutz Hazerim, many new companies created other complementary goods and new patents. The farmers enjoyed precise irrigation, and in a later stage where pressure compensated drip lines invented, longer crop beds became possible as the pressure loss through the laterals was minor.
Since then, Israel has become a rule player in the world of irrigation and today holds the 4 biggest companies for drip irrigation supplies, and dozens of other companies both in goods as well as in services.
I will list here the companies I found great interest in, and I believe they sell high-quality products.
At KIM, we supply equipment directly from those factories to our clients abroad. Your saving will range between 15%-30% starting from home scale green-house to projects of thousands of Hecters.
A link to each company website is available by clicking their names.
