Achieve stable crop yields regardless of the weather with agricultural irrigation hoses & sprinkler hoses as part of irrigation technology.Our TOP recommendations for irrigation hose
An adequate supply of water is crucial to ensure stable crop yields.
Greenhouse crops are, by their nature, dependent on irrigation. For outdoor crops, less frequent precipitation and increasing heavy rainfall events are both having a negative effect on the main vegetation period.
With increasing global warming, the risk of losing the year’s harvest due to frost grows: woody plants sprout early and the period during which frost can cause harm therefore becomes longer.
Although all systems serve the same purpose - targeted irrigation or sprinkling - the respective water supply hose as the "main artery" must be able to withstand different stresses such as ozone / UV radiation, chemicals, acids, fertilizers or simply the soil conditions.
For irrigation management to work, the farmer must be able to rely on his system and the warer supply hoses during this time. If there were a pressure drop in the hose line due to a damaged hose, the technology would shut down and valuable time would be lost during which crops could suffer irreparable damage.
Gollmer & Hummel develops agricultural hoses for sprinkling, irrigation and slurry hosing in such a way that each hose has maximum load-bearing capacity, tensile strength and abrasion resistance.
Whatever technology you use is your choice - feeder hoses from Gollmer & Hummel for sprinkler machines and irrigation systems are always the first choice!

During the extrusion of rubber or PU hoses, we center the jacket layer so that it has optimum protection. For intact fabric safeguards the hose’s tensile strength and makes sure it is puncture-resistant and withstands natural abrasion, point loads and mechanical damage. This is what’s inside a tough and reliable hose!
The manufacture of PU hoses is followed by GH normalization. This procedure simulates use and the hose is “run in”, so to speak: its diameter stays constant right to the end and the hose is supple to handle. We do this so that our everyday heroes are always smooth operators in the field!
