Big K-Line pods have been given the nod as an irrigation unit as well as effluent disposal.
The normal K-Line pods are seen widely across South Island farms, but if you see the larger pods with the lavender sprinkler, you know that effluent is being spread.
Large pods can also be used for irrigation however, which means that a bigger more powerful sprinkler is used, and the pods can be spread much further apart.
For irrigation of tall crops there is the pod with the extended height sprinkler, which was designed for use during the lifespan of a maize or corn crop, but can also be used for other tall crops where water needs to go over the top, and even potentially for frost management.
