In 1972, Jim Roberts introduced the Spot-Spitter to the world of tree production. After four years of perfecting it on his own citrus groves, a U.S. patent was issued and the Spot-Spitter was ready for prime time. This was half a century ago, so nearly all irrigation was either flood or impact sprinkler. Drip irrigation hadn't become popular yet.
After 50 years, the Spot-Spitter is still used at progressive nurseries for outdoor irrigation. It has grown into demanding new applications, like container-grown berries or medicinal cannabis.
The Spot-Spitter irrigates nearly 100% of the trees at:
- Everde Growers
- Moon Valley Nursery
- Norman’s Nursery
- The majority of the top 100 outdoor container nursery growers in the U.S.
- Thousands of small to midsize growers and garden centers
From its humble beginnings on Jim Roberts' farm, the Spot-Spitter changed the way nursery growers irrigate.
Today, the Spot-Spitter is manufactured by Primerus Products and sold through the nation's top irrigation dealers. Visit this website or call (855) SPITTER -- (855) 774-8837 -- for more information.
