When you’re getting such a small amount of water for your crops, you want to make sure it’s all going where it should be. Whether that’s with drip, or underground tape or micro sprinklers, to name a few, growers can run into problems with mineral buildup or decaying biologicals in their drip lines and emitters.

Daniel Britton says he’s seen some pretty bad cases, where growers weren’t getting all they should out of their irrigation systems. He’s the owner of Ag Water Solutions, which helps growers keep their irrigation free from these types of problems. He says that’s important because of the limited water availability.

To hear all his comments, listen to the audio report above.
