Drippers point up when layed on the surface under plastic mulch but under the soil I felt that the drippers could drain sediment easier pointing down. If drippers could be set sideways that would solve everything....
Sandea has tomatoes on the standard label a suppmental label is not needed. Sandea did a fine job, as of today I have no broadleaf weeds except some lambsquarters remaining in the patch. A lot of grass took over after harvest, Sandea is week on grass weeds.. Bob.

I think the drip tape manufacturers tell us to put the emitters up.  I 
think the reasoning is that particles will travel down bottom of the 
tube and eventually get flushed out rather than hung up in the 

Did you get my off-list query on Sandea?  I asked about use on tomatoes 
and whether you had a supplemental label on it.
