Trash and weed seeds are a major problem to irrigators, particularly those
using gated pipe or siphon tube irrigation systems. Trash in surface irrigation
systems often stops or reduces flow through gates or siphons resulting
in inadequate irrigation of the furrows served. Constant surveillance
to clean trash out of these orifices is impractical. Weed seeds passing
through an irrigation system are distributed throughout the field causing
extra tillage operations and reducing yields.
