A fluid flow emitter is provided, which is to be mounted within a fluid distribution tube to control the rate at which fluid is distributed from the tube. The emitter may include a cylindrical body having a pair of raised radially-extending annular portions extending circumferentially around the emitter. These raised portions define a fluid flow path. The body may define a multiplicity of apertures making up an aperture region disposed between the radially-extending annular portions. A flow control section is also provided which includes an upstream end and a downstream end. A fluid distribution region is also provided, into which the flow control section discharges. The fluid distribution region is in fluid interconnection with at least one orifice defined in the fluid distribution tube.
