This publication is meant to help farmers, dealers, and manufacturers recognize and understand some of the problems that have been experienced with drip tape – problems that are quite different from manufacturing defects. Problems that are quickly detected and properly identified can often be remedied, or be avoided in the future. The report addresses drip tape damage caused by pests, installation, emitter pressure, plugging, and other categories.
