FIRST - SELECT THE FLOW RATE FOR THE SPRAY STAKE
As long as you have enough water and pressure for the stake you select, it’s hard to go wrong. Netafim PC Spray Stakes will work in a very wide range of pot sizes (see table at right for general recommendations). Just remember, these are not strict limitations, just general guidelines. Many growers with larger pots use higher flow spray stakes while others prefer to use lower flow spray stakes and simply operate them longer.
The next consideration is how long a row or ‘run’ of pots you want to water. Lower flow spray stakes can water longer runs than higher flow spray stakes. See the Design Help section of this brochure to be sure the flow you select will be appropriate for your water resources and field configuration.
SECOND - SELECT THE SPRAY PATTERN
Most flow models offer both a single and a double spray pattern. The double spray pattern is selected when the stake will be placed closer to the trunk of the tree than the side of the container. Here it will wet more soil than the single spray and can be positioned to minimize wetting the base of the trunk.
Netafim Spray Stake Assemblies are specifically designed and matched to the container shape producing uniform and accurate wetting patterns for Nursery Containers from 3 to 30 gallons in size. They are an excellent solution where the primary means of fertilization is top dressing and where very coarse textured bark mixes are used.
