Buried pipelines are rapidly replacing many open-channel farm irrigation ditches. Both lined and unlined ditches may likely become obsolete in many areas in the future. Buried pipelines have many advantages. They eliminate seepage, provide better weed control, take less land out of production, enabling squaring fields by eliminating open ditches and provide better water control with less labor. Also, pipelines have a greater potential for automation. Automatic surface irrigation is just around the corner and installing buried pipelines is a first step in that direction.
