In my garden I have a drip irrigation system with a 4 gal/hr. head for each tomatoe plant. How often and for how long should I water? How do I convert gal/he into inches? Some reference books use inches of water and I don't know how to convert.

I've found an online source of conversion for you:

This publication explains how to convert gallons to inches, depending upon flow rate and area you want to cover.

Hope it helps!
