WHITE DRIP TAPE IRRIGATION SYSTEM
White drip tape has 2 plies of wall. Outer ply is white and inner ply is black. This white drip tape is designed to reduce the temperature of water inside the drip tape. Since black is easy to absorb heat, black drip tape is easy to heat the inside water under the sun. Hot water may hurt crops. Especially for the crops that are more sensitive to high temperatures water. For example strawberries are much need to white drip tapes so that irrigation water can be cooler. In general, after drip irrigation there is some water remaining in drip tape. The remaining water inside drip tape may heated by more than 50∘C. White tape can keep the water temperature low while drip tape is exposure under the sunlight. When the irrigation is restarted, the temperature of the first drop of water will be lower.
