The best way to water plants is through the root zone. Foliage does not need water, the roots do.
By watering above the root zone for long periods of time, distributed evenly you can:
- Eliminate many diseases that are spread through water contact with the foliage
- Use less water and therefore save money by eliminating runoff and evaporation
- Control how much water each plant gets with the use of different valves and emission divices now available for micro irrigation
