One of our industrial partners is Netafim, a large irrigation company with factories and offices in over 120 countries. They offer a full-line of products for a variety of markets including Agriculture, Landscape & Turf, Greenhouse & Nursery, Mining, and Wastewater.
In 2016 Netafim introduced a revolutionary new dripperline using Cupron technology to provide superior root intrusion resistance.
In fall of 2016, the landscape dripline won the 2016 Irrigation Show People’s Choice Award in the Landscape Irrigation category of the New Product Contest. The People’s Choice award, given annually since 2012, recognizes the most innovative products released in the last 12 months and is voted on by attendees at the Irrigation Association Show and Education Conference, which was held in Las Vegas from December 5-8, 2016.
From the press release:
“The latest addition to the best-selling line of landscape dripline, Netafim’s Techline HCVXR is the only landscape dripline that infuses Cupron® copper oxide directly into the mold of each emitter to provide a long lasting root barrier for subsurface drip irrigation systems. By embedding copper oxide into the material used to create each emitter during the manufacturing process, the dripline’s root resistant properties will not wash off or migrate out of the emitter after years of use.
“We’re delighted to be recognized by the Irrigation Association and industry colleagues for HCVXR, as it sets a new standard for innovation with its unparalleled features, functions, and attributes, many of which are found in Netafim’s agricultural-grade driplines,” said Mauricio Troche, Director of Sales and Marketing for Netafim USA’s Landscape Division.
“The result is a solution that professionals and end-users can trust to endure the challenges of today’s diverse and dynamic landscapes,” added Troche.
