Drip tape/drip line or online drip emitters

The above shows the high-level decision flow chart for selecting a drip emitter.

To start, there are two product families:

  • Online drippers – The drippers are inserted into the tube (generally manually) and sit above the tube. Generally, these are used in protected cropping applications as they allow the connection to a tube and peg, but there are exceptions where they are used in-field.
  • In-line drip emitters – The drip emitter is manufactured into the tube itself during the manufacturing process. You do not see the dripper as it is inside the tube. There is an outlet through the hose where the drip emits. Most open-field and some protected cropping applications use in-line drip emitters.


Within each product family there are multiple options, which we will now explore.
