What is the preferred method of applying a soil drench (either a tea or maybe other fertilizers for this point in the season) to the entire plant?

Is this typically done through the drip tape/line watering setup?

Also, for applying foliar spray, do growers typically use a handheld or backpack pump sprayer or maybe a hose-end sprayer?

Tea will block drip lines, also drip lines will have needed to be have laid down back in May, to allow the plant time to grow over them.
Personally I used a battery-powered pump sprayer with a high volume nozzle that can cope with tea without getting clogged up.
