The article emphasizes the importance of the knowledge of the location of pipelines in farms. Pipelines are used to safely transport hazardous liquids and gases in agriculture. Among the factors that pose safety risk to pipelines are land drainage, mole draining and ditching. Farmers should place marker posts and aerial posts to highlight the presence of high-pressure pipelines.
