Drip irrigation should run for the length of time necessary to deliver the required amount of water needed for your specific plants or crops. Generally, depending on the weather and soil conditions, 10-20 minutes of drip irrigation a day per area should be sufficient.
It’s important to adjust the run time as necessary throughout the growing season. The best way to determine the appropriate run time is to use a soil moisture sensor.
