Slick New Way To Make Temporary Irrigation Dams
"This new device turns the most frustrating and tedious part of flood irrigating into a relatively easy chore," says Agri-Plastics of its just-introduced EZSet tarp support.
This "better way to make temporary irrigation dams" is a triangular shaped piece of thick, curved polyethylene sheeting rein-forced with plastic stiffeners and a wire strongback. It weighs only 11 lbs., making it easy to handle. One person working alone can install it in seconds in any standard 5 to 7 ft. V-ditch, including full flowing and grassy ditches. The device and tarp are held tightly against the ditch bottom and sides by the pressure of the water.
You simply push the point of the triangular EZSet into the mud at the bottom of the ditch. Holes in the device allow water in the ditch to flow through it. The plastic canvas dam is then thrown over the water in front of the EZSet, letting the current carry it into place.
Complete irrigation tarp support, with fitted tarp, sells for $75.
