Small automatic irrigation gates for farm distribution systems are
being developed to improve the efficiency of water use and to save labour.
Two general classes of gates are described : (1) fully automatic gates which
operate from the energy of water flowing in the ditch and which require a
minimum of attention from the operator ; and (2) semi-automatic gates
which require resetting or moving at each irrigation. The structures are
designed to divert water for a predetermined period of time from a farm
distribution ditch onto one portion of a field after another in sequence.
They are normally used in pairs.
