        Abstract. Irrigation is the artificial application of water to the soil usually for assisting in growing crops. It is critical, yet a vital input of agriculture production process and pivotal to agricultural, social, and economic growth of nation. Civilizations have been dependent on development of irrigated agriculture to provide agrarian basis of a society and to enhance the security of people. Water, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal. Information. For Authors For Reviewers For Editors For Librarians For Publishers For Societies.

A well designed and managed irrigation system reduces water loss to evaporation, deep percolation, and runoff and minimizes erosion from applied water. Applica-tion of this management measure will reduce the waste of irrigation water, improve water use efficiency, and reduce the total pollutant discharge from an irrigation system.

        The Case for Distributed Irrigation. Between and , 26 SSA countries experienced at least 6 droughts, and 14 of them experienced at least 10 droughts, precipitating food crises that resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths over the period (6, 7).Such famines continue to occur against a backdrop of widespread chronic malnutrition—in the forms of calorie, protein, and . within district or farm, resulting in fewer problems and easier operation. • Accurate water measurement provides the on-farm irrigation decision-maker with the information needed to achieve the best use of the irrigation water applied while typically minimizing negative environmental impacts.

The environmental impacts of irrigation relate to the changes in quantity and quality of soil and water as a result of irrigation and the effects on natural and social conditions in river basins and downstream of an irrigation impacts stem from the altered hydrological conditions caused by the installation and operation of the irrigation scheme.

planning, designing, evaluating, and managing irrigation systems. It pro-vides the process for states to supplement the guide with local soils, crops, and irrigation water requirement information needed to plan, design, evalu-ate, and manage irrigation systems.

Irrigation Guide, Partis a new handbook to the family of references in. The International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage is dedicated to enhancing the worldwide supply of food and fibre for all people by improving water and land management and the productivity of irrigated and drained lands through appropriate management of water, environment and application of irrigation, drainage and flood management techniques.

Planning and Evaluation of Irrigation Projects: Methods and Implementation presents the considerations, options and factors necessary for effective implementation of irrigation strategies, going further to provide methods for evaluating the efficiency of systems-in-place for remedial correction as needed.

As the first book to take this lifecycle approach to agricultural irrigation, it. The applicability of the model was validated in the Fenhe irrigation district. The information on hydrology, weather and water use from to in the Fenhe irrigation district was used to simulate and analyze the water balance.

The sensitive parameters were estimated by E n s, RE and R 2. The model was further validated with the monthly. They illustrate the spectrum and global spreading of topics that are dealt with in Irrigation and Drainage as one of the leading journals in the fields of water management and flood protection.

The authors belong to the top experts in the sector and are well recognised by their colleagues. Browse the Editor's Choice list of articles.

The Imperial Irrigation District, located in the dry desert of Southern California, was developed in the s with the diversion of water from the Colorado River. Even today, large-scale irrigation systems, like the GAP project in southeastern Turkey (figure ), are being initiated.

Of all the confrontations man has engineered with nature, irrigation systems have had the most widespread and far-reaching impact on the natural environment. Over a quarter of a billion hectares of the planet are irrigated and entire countries depend on irrigation for their survival and existence.

Considering the importance of irrigation schemes, it is unfortunate that until recently the 1/5(1). Irrigation Manual: Planning, Development Moni toring and Evaluation of Irrigated Agriculture with Farmer Participation.

possible. The water control structures built for large-scale irrigation projects often also simultaneously generate hydroelectric power and control floods, which further add to the national economic development process.

Since glob­ ally irrigation is the largest consumer of water (about 80% of. It is essential that irrigation projects be planned and managed in the context of overall river basin and regional development plans, including both the upland catchment areas and the catchment areas downstream.

This chapter reviews the most important environmental issues related to irrigation and drainage development. Bebbington, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences, Rural development can be understood as the unfolding of capitalism in rural areas, and as that package of policy and project interventions that aim to foster socio-economic change and human improvement in rural areas.

Some writing on ‘rural development’ thus addresses general issues of agrarian change. Program. In addition, staff of several development agencies (including ADB, IFAD, AFD, FAO) were interviewed.

The sample of projects analyzed is therefore broadly representative of agricultural water development and management experiences in sub-Saharan Africa.

This summary presents the major findings and key recommendations emerging from the. development would be prohibitive. As the largest water user in the United States, irrigation—of agriculture, turf, and landscapes—must seek ways to conserve.

This will require a variety of technologies. Research goals— • To develop technology that quantifies and controls a. Finally, a five-step planning and design procedure is proposed that is able to integrate, within the development process, the hydrological consequences of climate change.

For researchers interested in irrigation and drainage and in crop production under changing climate conditions, references have been included, under developments in irrigation. By Lance Walheim, The National Gardening Association.

Even if you can’t draw a straight line, you have to make a map of your property to plan your irrigation system. Draw your map to scale (such as 1 inch equals 10 feet) on graph paper as accurately as possible (most irrigation system instructions include graph paper for a map).
