Deep air injection by way of a watering tree standing vertically with a base that spits air from the bottom of a post hole. This beats drip irrigation
I mean out in the fields where the discs have a hard pan of dirt they can't reach through.! It's a game changer for certain crops, just not the
traditional corn or soybeans. Peppers and Tomatos...and the entire melon and pumpkin family, which includes all the squash, too. My son's tractor
with the post hole attachment digs down to 4 feet in about 7 seconds, so that's neat to see...and the plumbing is tame and uses pvc and plastic we
try to keep out of the sun with dirt. One needs water and air under pressure in the pipes, so you toggle between water and air being fed into the
system with a simple manifold and auto gated central control station. The air pumps are cheap and last years. Rotary and quiet, they are just fun!
Gravity feed the water into the air pipe...only run power 4 minutes, then off for 40 minutes. The post hole gets a tree pipe 22 inches tall tossed in
and then dirt with added organic matter of any kind added...roots love the altered structure soil.
Saves water...better than drip...the key is the oxygen down at root level spitting water just a little and the air escaping by rising up out of the
post hole. Works in the Texas clay well. You will not see a faster growth rate in soil crops.
Bubbling the back pasture.....unbeatable looking leafs on those plants so lush, one drawback...
After two seasons, it's best to pull the plumbing and move to a new strip...punch new holes. Strip farming is the best way to keep bugs from taking
over the whole field at once.....they run into a wall of different crops.
The quality of the produce beats hydroponics for flavor hugely, cantaloupes and watermelons benefit the most.
You ought to see the squash mounds....yep bubble farming...cheap on electricity with a 220 volt timer toggling
