“I was recently blown away to find that some take the ‘big drink’ to the extreme, using something I call the ‘big gulp’ approach. I’ve heard about 24-, 48- and even 72-hour irrigation applications using drip, which equates to roughly as many gallons applied per vine each irrigation. I don’t even apply that many gallons to vines all season!”
