A system that maximizes irrigable are per unit of pipe length installed in a plot.https://horticulture.ucdavis.edu/project/irrigation-uganda

Piping is a very expensive component of an irrigation system, and often a small pump can supply water to more land the farmers are able to purchase pipe to cover.
A system of piping the lays a buried section to the center of the field to be irrigated, and attaches a raised pipe (HDPE or Layflat) that can rotate in a circle. This mimics the layout of a traditional center-pivot system, but is manually moved to the plot a farmer desires to irrigate. This center pivot model maximizes the irrigable area for a given length of pipe.
