I have a number of crops which when I'm home I notice the soil beneath them seems to dry up mid growth requiring me to water them by hand.

When I go off exploring other planets or underground, I want to come back to my home and find that my crops are ready for harvest, not find them mid growth and not having grown for hours.

So is there a way for me to irrigate my crops so that I don't have to worry about watering them for extended periods of time?

You can use sprinklers.

When placed it spreads water over an area of 15 blocks in both directions, (covering a total of 32 blocks, 30 not counting the sprinkler itself), which will prepare soil for crops to grow.

They will water whether you are there or not. Just make sure they meet the spacing requirements.
