Other soil considerations

  • Sandy soils

Have a greater risk of suck-back where the soil is ingested into the dripper.
In this case, you should consider an anti-siphon (AS) dripper (see Module 2).

  • Heavier soils

Can be more difficult for installation and retrieval, especially if buried



  • Your soil type(s) will impact the volume of water to apply per hour, and emitter spacing.
