Abstract: Various methods and types of control equipment for automating border and basin irrigation are described. Mechanical gates include dual function turnout gates that both open and close and a trapezoidal center-of-pressure check gate for a lined ditch. Cablegation systems are used to irrigate either borders or basins with or without cutback. Field tests and systems using feedback are described.
