What do you call this? Where can I buy one? Where can I buy 100 of them? Part II


This week, we’ve been talking plastics—meeting with producers of pipes, filters, takeoffs, and everything else we need to connect our drip irrigation. It’s a great adventure, tracking the entire chain, from seeing products in the greenhouse, to meeting the retailers who sell to farmers, to finding the actual manufacturers and visiting their factories to see the irrigation components being made. I came to China with my bags full of drip tape; now I’m returning with bags full of samples.
