Snack and irrigation
« on: December 16, 2019, 07:20:17 am »
I am using the EB irrigation system this year and want to add the snack. Do I have to turn the system off for a few days until the box is down a gallon of water or can I just dissolve it in a small amount of water and put it down the tube. Thanks

Good question. You can put the 1 tsp of "snack" prills (calcium nitrate) directly into the reservoir tube. It will dissolve all by itself.
Why Google, when you have me?

Here's the video I shot a few years ago talking about the "snack"
