Drip tape is an excellent way to water many plants because it prevents disease by minimizing water contact with the leaves, stems, and fruit of plants.
It allows rows between plants to remain dry improving access and reducing weed growth. It is a very efficient way to water and reduces the leaching of water and nutrients below the root zone.
However, choosing the right drip tape for your project can feel a bit overwhelming.  During this webinar, Michael Pippen walks us through a step-by-step process that makes selecting the right drip tape for your crop easy.  
In this training, you will learn:
  1. The correct diameter tape for my crop
  2. The appropriate wall thickness of the tape
  3. The proper spacing for what you are growing
  4. The best flow rate so your crop gets the right amount of water
