I am planning to start Horticulture farming using the drip irrigation system on a nine acre piece of land in Lamu District at Faza island. the source of water will be a well. so i would want you to advice me on how to set up the most economical drip irrigation system on water and all other aspects.

Answer:

KARI promotes drip irrigation kits starting with the drum kit (for 500 plants) up to ¼ acre family drip kit (for 5000 plants). The cost ranges from Kshs 7,000 to 50,000 depending on the size of the drip system and tank. The kits are sold at our KARI Kabete Centre located on Waiyaki way in Nairobi. (2010)
