The S2000 should only be used upright. It comes with a 10mm BSP base and is often mounted on a riser stake such as the, mini sprinkler stake,and pushed into the ground under the tree or between trees. The broad water coverage allows the tree roots to maximise their growth over the entire root-zone area; for tree crops this also means more roots to absorb fertilisers, especially when fertigation is incorporated into the irrigation system.
Avocado, pipfruit, citrus and kiwifruit growers have used mini sprinklers for years with great results.

The S2000 Micro Sprinklers are the ideal choice for a wide range of applications including irrigation, cooling, and frost protection for orchards and groves. The S2000 Micro Sprinkler delivers a consistent spray pattern at a low angle, avoiding low hanging branches.
The S2000 now comes with what used to be a separate part called an ‘anti-ant cup’ which prevents spiders and ants from making homes inside the sprinklers over winter.
Historically we have sold the Rondo sprinkler manufactured by Plastro in Israel. Plastro became John Deere and then Rivulis a few years ago. The Rivulis S2000 is a newer, sleeker version of the Rondo.
The S2000 is available with a few handy options. You can choose flow regulation (as long as the pipeline’s pressure is above 2 bar) which is useful with long sprinkler lines or slightly undulating terrain and ensures all trees receive the same amount of water.
It can also come with a range-limiter which is handy when the crop is young. It prevents the water from throwing more than 1m and can be easily snapped off when the trees grow bigger, allowing the full throw of water.
If both these options suit your application then the S2000 with flow regulation & range limiter would be ideal.
