translated from Spanish: Irrigation will offer producers plastic tarpaulins to improve intra-finca irrigation

On the basis of an agreement and the signing of an agreement between Irrigation and external advertising companies, the water agency will distribute free of charge and to the users who request it, plastic tarpaulins that, placed in the internal children, will make it possible to increase the efficiency in irrigation. The Superintendent General of Irrigation, Sergio Marinelli, on Wednesday signed a collaboration agreement with the president of the Chamber of Foreign Advertising of Mendoza and member of the Argentine Chamber of Public Road Advertising Companies, which will allow as part of the actions carried out by the DGI to encourage the use of methods of reasonable efficiency in the use of water at the intra-finca level, to promote the use of plastic tarpaulins that placed in the internal figs of the farms, will help to improve the efficiency irrigation. The body that administers water in the Province, will deliver to the producers who request it and free of charge, the tarpaulins that are usually discarded by companies that advertise on public roads, once they are out of use. These tarpaulins shall be distributed to irrigators under the incentive programme for the application of methods of reasonable efficiency, for intra-finca use. Benefits in its use Currently the attire elements used on the regueras are varied, finding from earthplugs that are put and disarmed with each irrigation, to sheet metal gates in concrete frames In this frame, the plastic tarpaulins, are a alternative that offers certain comparative advantages in parcel irrigation. The spinning canvases are a sealing and shunt system consisting of a polyethylene or PVC (waterproof) plastic film between 200 and 300 microns, rolled and sealed on a stick that is placed transversely on the watering ditch. The canvas extends into the direction upstream of the ditch and is fixed on the bottom and the sides with earth, stone or other weight elements. This technology has been adopted mainly by horticultural producers in the province of Mendoza, and its use has been extended to winegrowers or fruit growers. While its knowledge is widespread and widely used, it has a lot of expansion potential to be incorporated into multiple production systems that use surface irrigation. The main advantage of this tool is its versatility associated with the low cost of production, which allows the producer to use it in a wide variety of situations. This feature is of particular importance, as greater adaptability becomes critical for the maintenance, subsistence and development of production units in the face of the unintended consequences of increased water restriction, and the contribution of plastic tarpaulins in this regard is considerable. In addition, a good flow-flow and flow-flow control system allows greater control over the water supply that is delivered to crops, extending the margin to improve irrigation efficiency by delivering regulated flows. The tarps can be used with the aim of packing the water to enter a certain irrigation unit or lid. Also as gates over the mouths of the entrance to grooves or melgas. They also serve for waterproofing channels and ditches that have a high infiltration rate. In this note:
