Properly managing soil moisture will not only prevent damage to crops, it will also increase vigor and yields. In the field, it is important to understand natural sources of water, and supplement with irrigation as needed to achieve the proper amount of soil moisture. In a high tunnel there is no source of natural moisture, and irrigation must be managed closely in order to provide enough water for plants to thrive.
Used in the field and in the tunnel, drip irrigation is an efficient way of delivering water directly to the root zone of plants.
Growing in a high tunnel requires an appropriate irrigation system that depends on the size and layout of the tunnel, as well as the crop. Four Season Tools offers a variety of irrigation options that can be customized to fit your needs. Manually or automatically operated drip or overhead irrigation options offer the flexibility and efficiency necessary for your farm.
