One of the maintenance things for flood irrigation is to burn the dead grass and weeds out of the ditch this time of the year. So I have been marching up and down ditch backs with a propane torch. This will help the water flow better. When the grass starts up I will Roundup the grass on the edges of the ditch so the guy mowing the hay can see where the ditch is. One of those 5 gallon propane tanks isn't that heavy until you pack it along about 2 miles of ditch.

A bit like a back pack sprayer Dave. They always seem just as heavy at the end when empty as when they started full.

We use drip torches and they have the same problem... they get heavier as the day goes on.
