When plants want water and nutrients, they emit root exudates that allow them to uptake what they need from the surrounding soil. Our patented RDI Tape responds and interacts with these chemical transmitters in the root exudates, allowing water and nutrients to be released out of the billions of micropores in RDI’s tubing.

When the plant has enough, it stops producing root exudates- and RDI Tape stops releasing water.

Weather conditions- temperature, sunshine, rain, wind, humidity… all contribute to how much water and nutrients each plant demands.  Each plant at different developmental stages will also have different needs.  Our system makes water and nutrients available to each plant, 24/7.

Plant by plant. Minute by minute.

The next generation of
drip irrigation is here.
