Drip-system helps conserve water

Imagine having a refreshing drink of water brought to you every time you wanted. That happens to thirsty plants irrigated with what's known as a subsurface drip irrigation system. This environmentally friendly technology employs an underground network of sturdy, flexible black tubing to carry water to plant roots, exactly where they need it the most.

Subsurface-drip irrigation enables growers to send precise amounts of water to roots. The underground tubing also can transport fertilizers with vital nutrients — like phosphorus and nitrogen.remain among the most comprehensive of their kind.
