Plumbing on the plantation
If there is no water in the tap, then what? Correct - it means the pump does not work. We have this, as seen in the title picture, everything is in order.
1 hectare of vanilla is irrigated.
2. As a reservoir for water, it was decided to use 250-liter plastic barrels.
3. They cost a penny.
4. Connecting in parallel several pieces you get a decent water tank.
5. Over time, add the eighth and will be 2,000 liters.
6. Made the foundation, since seven 250-liter barrels of water weigh decently.
7. The submersible vibration pumps of the “baby” type brought to me from Russia did not cope with their task. They do not have enough power. Neither 200-watt nor 300. Therefore, I continue to use the Chinese 12-volt. While everything is normal. According to your advice, I replaced the foam plastic with plastic bottles on the raft. A 100-watt motor pumps 6 liters per minute, i.e. the reservoir fills up in about 5 hours.
8. Have made a collar formwork (or as it is called).
9. Near a small vegetable garden. Cucumbers.
10. And onion.
11. From the well supply water to the tank with a 100-meter hose. Let me remind you that the difference in height is about 30 meters.
12.The overhead valve for dialing on the spot, the water supply opens at the bottom. Cemented floor to dirt was not.
13. With all this garbage collected pipe system.
16. All pipes laid in the ground. Exit only in some places.
17. A total of 6 cranes per hectare. This is sufficient if the length of the hose is 25 meters.
18. Another crane at the very beginning of the plantation. Just in case.
19. And these are the results of watering and changing the nutrient medium (I’ve talked about the palm tree before).
20. All these cuttings of vanilla were planted 3 months ago - they did not want to germinate. Replaced the care system and everything got.
21. Do you see palm particles under the leaves? It accumulates water and maintains the necessary moisture.
22. Plus watering. And the result was not long in coming.

I continue to design a watering system. Soon I will show you in all its glory. A couple of days ago, a couple of pumps arrived from Russia with an opportunity - the Caliber and the Cricket (although I ordered
The rise of water from the well to 30 meters
Equipment: Chinese pump (12 volts, 60 watts), solar panel (150 watts), hose 100 meters (Ø15 - Ø21 mm), wire 2.5 sq. Mm (6 meters). Everything! As a result
Plantation. Four months later
4 months ago, on September 18, 2017, we started from scratch the laying of vanilla and carnation plantations on the east coast of Madagascar.
