Drip irrigation is the ideal choice for plants susceptible to foliar diseases, including tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and eggplants. Without overhead watering, which can spread disease, your plants will be healthier than ever! Drip irrigation is also an excellent solution for crops grown under plastic mulch (watermelon, squash, pumpkins, strawberries, etc.) as other irrigation methods may not effectively reach the roots of the plants.
If drip irrigation doesn’t sound like the right choice for you, check out our Overhead Irrigation Kit. Specifically designed for our Farmers Friend Caterpillar Tunnels, our Overhead Irrigation Kit allows for easier cultivation (no drip tape in the way), can be used to cool temperatures in summer, doesn’t have to be moved each time you plant a new crop, and can provide more even watering to thick plantings of small leafy greens and certain root crops. Alternatively, our Field Irrigation Kit will be ideal for watering large areas at a time, generally in outdoor, uncovered beds.
