DIY Pumpkin Irrigation Systems
Pumpkins are a unique crop to grow as one plant can cover a large area. As the plant expands from it’s original planting it will lay down additional roots from the stems themselves. Therefore when planning a pumpkin irrigation system you must plan for watering away from the plant as well as the seedling itself. Below is a photo of the current Ontario record pumpkin which weighed in at 1,803 pounds. This pumpkin and it’s second place finisher at 1,800 pounds were both grown with an Irrigation Direct Canada Drip Irrigation System.
