Hi Yes indeed -
Well known for it's effectiveness IF you have access to a large amount of water. Equivalent to 5mm rainfall per hour required (from memory) Has been used on other fruit crops in the uk too. Wouldn't be suitable on all soils - needs to be really free draining
That's a very good point and it would depend on the type of system you use. Our "Flipper" sprinkler we mentioned earlier uses the equivalent of 1.5-2mm rainfall per hour, depending on row widths.
