With increasing energy and labor
costs, irrigators are looking for ways to
minimize costs and at the same time
use their water more efficiently.
One system used quite extensively
during the past two or three years in
the Grand Valley of Colorado is the
semiautomated "flo-thru" gated pipe
system. This system uses a single
gated pipeline for a number of irrigation
sets without the irrigator having
to close one group of gates and open
another group at each irrigation set
