Even with drip irrigation knowledge of irrigation and soil types is essential for it to work at it’s most efficient.

Soil type influences water penetration and runoff.

If soil particles are tightly packed (clay soil), water can pool on the surface and eventually flow away from the plants. Water flows quickly through sandy soils. Select low output emitters (1/2gph, 1gph) for clay soil and higher output (2gph, 4gph) for sandy soils.
