Irrigation application using microtube-type and button-type drip irrigation systems tends to be relatively non-uniform especially under steep slopes and low operating heads. This study was conducted to determine the effect of using a device called Adjustable Pressure-Loss Lateral Takeoff Valves (APLTVs) on water distribution uniformity of both types of drip systems
