My dad decided to turn the sprinklers on today for the first time all season. Of course, my hops are now directly in the path of two sprinklers, one of which is only about 3 ft from my hops, hitting them with a little bit of pressure. I told my dad that getting water on the leaves (I've read) can burn the hops when hit by direct strong sunlight, and he keeps promising me (despite not knowing anything about hops) that it wont hurt them.
So do I have a problem here, or should I not worry about the water?
