Did you know that watering pumpkin plants with a drip irrigation system is one of the best and most efficient options?
Pumpkins require regular, even water to keep vines and fruiting growing without interruption.
Give pumpkins 1 to 1½ inches of water each week (1 inch/2.5cm of water equals about 16 gallons/60.5 liters).
Do not let the soil dry out. Slow, deep watering is best.
Water at the base of plants using drip irrigation of a soaker hose.
Avoid wetting leaves; wet leaves are susceptible to fungal diseases.
By installing a drip irrigation system in pumpkin plants, you will substantially reduce the water consumption and at the same time increase the yield.
