Tomato ground covers
Up til now I have just been using straw in my rows. Foliage disease pressure has been incredible this year, and weeds ignored the 6"+ of matted straw, so next year I am planning on using either black plastic or landscape fabric with straw on top. I have been using soaker hoses for irrigation, but they are cheap ones from a box store clearance rack and they are done. Next season I will either upgrade to quality soakers or go with drip line with pre-spaced emitters (12") I have about 10 rows, 20-40 ft long. Question posed: Plastic or fabric? dripline or soakers? What are your experiences?
