BUMPY DRIP TAPE EXTRACTION IMPLEMENTS
The BUMPY Drip Tape Extraction Implement is the ideal equipment to extract drip tape in shallow applications (buried 2" or less). The implement forces the drip tape out of the ground and over plant material. The drip tape then can be efficiently retrieved from the end of the row by ULTRA Binders or MEGA Binder retrieval equipment. This system was also designed for the vegetable grower who uses drip tape to germinate in the center of the bed, but wants to move tape into the furrows for subsequent irrigations. The extractor applies an adjusted constant pull on the tape while the tractor traverses the field, pulling the tape out of crops and laying the tape on top of the crop or in the furrow.
