DIG ST100AS - Drip & Soaker Tape Vegetable Watering Kit

by DIG
$17.99

Drip Soaker Tape is a flat, thin walled hose containing pre-spaced drip emitters that expands when filled with water. In-line drip emitters, welded into to the drip soaker tape every 12” during the extrusion process, allowing for complete saturation coverage along the line. Ideal for drip irrigation of vegetable gardens and row crops including tomatoes, strawberries, melons, peppers, eggplants, and more, drip tape can be installed above or below ground or under mulch. The most efficient use of drip soaker tape is with low flow drip emitters, closely spaced to achieve the desired wetting pattern. A report from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo’s Irrigation and Training Research Center (ITRC) reveals that closely spaced drip emitters can improve salinity, provide a better wetted pattern, and increase crop quality. Homeowners are successfully using a range of drip irrigation techniques including drip soaker tape systems to grow a variety of crops without the use of traditional sprinkler systems.
