Great talk on irrigation!

I don’t think we have ever had so many people glued to their Zoom screens for so long as we did when Allister Cooney of Netafim shared his decades of irrigation experience with us on the 16th.  Learning that drip irrigation is even more efficient than rainfall was an eye-opener and I ‘m sure will be changing many of our watering habits. Ditto  that flush valves are absolutely necessary, even for tree rings   Allister provided illustrations of best practice drip layouts, including the sizing of headers and the appropriate spacing of drippers in different situations.  The online irrigation calculator he mentioned is available here.  The catalog of Netafim products is here.  He also mentioned that if you know exactly what you want, local business like Smith Pipe & Supply or Aqua-Flo will order them for you.

If you happened to miss the talk, or want to refresh your memory, the video is available to chapter members.  Just ask.
