FlowControl drip irrigation is taking the ag irrigation industry by storm, creating an entirely new class of tapes. It is the only tape on the market that is a true flow-moderating drip tape.

Toro FlowControl drip tape gives you the best features of a pressure compensating tape, and standard tape: More uniform irrigation for any terrain, and the flexibility to control the overall system flow rate. With FlowControl drip irrigation, you truly get the best of both worlds. Continue reading

While 2016 brought some relief to the Western drought, many areas are still experiencing historic water shortages, with no reprieve in sight.
