Solid Set Irrigation
From Irrigation System
Whether solid set irrigation lines are above ground or buried, the solid set irrigation method can provide high application uniformity. In a solid set arrangement, pipe can be removed from the field for cultural practices which eliminates the necessity of farming around sprinkler risers. Because the pipe is not permanently fixed in one location, it is possible for successive sets to be offset from the previous position in order to even out the overall uniformity. The solid set method is used extensively for both crop irrigation and frost protection.
