Drip Tape Class Features:

  • Learn about the super efficient irrigation system used by professional farmers to provide consistent watering over entire crop areas.
  • See the best ways to adjust for garden sizing and watering needs, and learn what is needed to make the system work.
  • Review the easy step-by-step process for setting up your own systems, and see how simple it is to effect repairs.
  • See how a drip tape system solved the watering challenges for an orchard with high clay soil
