Drip irrigation saves water and fertilizer by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of many different plants, either onto the soil surface or directly onto the root zone, through a network of valves, pipes, tubing, and emitters. For busy growers, a benefit of drip irrigation is the savings of both time and effort.
The Drip Irrigation Installation Workshop will include:
• Hands-on instruction and system demonstration
• Discussion of the benefits of using a drip system
• Maintenance and management of using a drip system
THIS EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOP IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
