"Growers in the West have continued to invest in drip irrigation, each year producing more acres of vegetables using drip tape technology. Drip irrigation has helped growers increase yields, improve quality, and conserve water. Chemigation through drip has become an important tool for using fertilizer more efficiently by better synchronizing the delivery of nutrients with crop needs. Despite these benefits, drip often requires more management than furrow and sprinklers, and mistakes can be costly."
