Desert grown bay trees receive hydrospirals in between every other tree to reduce water lost to evaporation. They’re watered once a week. We checked moisture levels and found the water soaked at least 4 to 5 feet out from the tubes. The surface was dry but once we dug down 1 foot, you could see moisture.
Installed hydrospiral on desert grown table grapes to reduce water usage by 25%. The test row received some VermisTerra tea and hydrospiral tubes were placed between each grapevine. Grape and leaf growth was comparable to neighboring rows. Lab tests to come.
