Hi,
I'm trying to decide on the best type of irrigation for our poly tunnel (14 by 30 ft). Its between drip irrigation or ground level sprinklers. As the tunnel is on quite a steep slope I was leaning towards drip ( lessen nutrients being washed away) but I'm concerned about the whole bed getting enough water, which makes me think sprinklers......would love some advice!
Thanks

we have just installed a drip irrigation system a few weeks ago from p j Kelly in Kilkenny it works great except for watering carrots seedlings that's the only time a sprinkling system might be useful along side a drip system
