The Row Crop Drip Irrigation Kit*

$89.00 - 200 ft. of High flow Drip Tape
(To save on shipping, purchase kits without 1/2" tubing for $76.00)

Specifically designed for longer row crops and extensive square foot gardening, this kit uses 5/8" 15mil, high flow Drip Tape with emitters spaced 8" apart for even watering and can irrigate up to ten 20 foot rows.

For this drip kit to work at its best, you should elevate your barrels at least six feet off the ground to maintain the minimum requirement of 3 psi from start to finish. If you're unable to elevate the barrels to 6 feet, then raise them at least 4 feet if you can. At this height your system will still have just enough pressure to function, although it won't be as strong or last as long.

If you maintain the required 3 psi throughout and use 200 feet of Drip Tape, the emitters (300) will produce approximately 0.15 gph each or 40 gph total. That said, how long your water lasts depends on the length of time you leave your spigot open. To ensure that you have enough water for the time set, we recommend using a 275 to 330 gallon IBC Tote or a system of at least five rain barrels.

Here is where experimentation comes in. Set your timer for 15 minutes, then test your soil to see if that was enough time for the water to reach your plant's root system. Adjust the start time(s) and duration accordingly, based on your results. How long your water actually lasts depends on your setup (number of emitters, soil condition, height of barrel(s), system capacity, type of spigot, length of tubing, timer use, etc.).
