    Drip irrigating hops

    Does anyone have experience with drip irrigating hops? I would like advice on what kind of emitters to use (GPH, manufacturers, models, etc.) for my small hop farm.

    Thanks

    Hydro-gardens.com 4.2 GPH. 1/8" noodles (24" long). Oversize feedlines for long runs with many outlets. Valve some runs. Get a filter with cleanable S/S filter.

    Got our system on solenoids and timers- life is good.

    Have fun! This is easy! ( And VERY rewarding unless you like being hose-handed)

    Any chance you can post a few pictures of your irrigation system?

    Thanks, that gives me some ideas!

    If things go well at my little hop farm by fall, I'm going to go from the 30 plants I have now to 150 or so next year, so I'll be looking to put in some kind of system eventually.
