This study aims to simulate border irrigation systems using the SIRMOD (surface irrigation simulation, evaluation and design, developed by Utah State University, Logan, UT, USA) software package. Gujarat for maximising the irrigation efficiencies for specific field sizes and available discharges. Similar guidelines could be prepared for other surface irrigation methods or for other areas. Under the prevailing conditions, furrow irrigation in heavy clay soils should be applied with care.

• Method of cultivation. Surface irrigation methods. Oldest ( years back) and most common method. 90% of world’s total irrigated area is under this method. In USA also, 66% is by surface irrigation. This method is most suitable for low to moderate infiltration rates and leveled lands and having. Surface irrigation (Figure ) of secondary treated and disinfected effluent is permitted in NSW. However, surface irrigation has limitations because it increases the according to Appendix 6 of the ‘Silver Book’ using design irrigation rate data for the The laterals in the effluent irrigation field should be buried to

­Though initially expensive -- between $ and $ per acre -- and not suitable­ for many areas, the economical advantages of drip irrigation can be further enhanced by placing the irrigation tubing about 5 inches (about centimeters) below the surface. Down there, the water really does get straight to where it's needed - the roots of the plant. Irrigation Crop Water Requirement. This case study shows how to calculate the total water requirement for a command area (irrigation blocks) under various crops, soil textures and conveyance loss conditions. In order to evaluate the required irrigation gift for the entire command area a simple water balance has to be set-up.

Surface irrigation is where water is applied and distributed over the soil surface by gravity. It is by far the most common form of irrigation throughout the world and has been practiced in many areas virtually unchanged for thousands of years.

Surface irrigation is often referred to as flood irrigation, implying that the water distribution is uncontrolled and therefore, inherently inefficient. Surface irrigation is the introduction and distribution of water in a field by the gravity flow of water over the soil surface.

The soil acts as the growing medium in which water is stored and the conveyance medium over which water flows as it spreads and infiltrates. Common surface irrigation systems used are rill irrigation, furrow or border irrigation. Methods of irrigation surface irrigation.

In all the surface methods, Surface irrigation Uncontrolled flooding, Border strip,Check,Basin,Furrow method. of irrigation, water is either ponded on the soil or allowed to flow continuously over the soil surface for the duration of s: 1.

To select an irrigation method, either as a new practice or be introduced under already existing conditions, a series of technical and economic aspects should be selection is commonly influenced by water availability, soil type, topography, climate, crop or orchard type, labor availability and type, energy, and the relative cost of each resource.

Surface Irrigation Methods John T. Phelan and Wayne D. Criddle There are three general methods of applying irrigation water to the land. In surface irrigation the soil is the reservoir from which the plants draw the water they need.

The soil also con- veys and distributes the water over the field. In sprinkler irrigation the water is. Dengiz () also compared different irrigation methods including surface and drip irrigation in the pilot fields of the central research institute, lkizce research farm located in southern Ankara.

He concluded that the drip irrigation method increased the land suitability by 38% compared to the surface irrigation method. An important advantage of the furrow method is that only to as much surface area is wetted during irrigation as compared with flooding methods of irrigation, and evaporation losses are correspondingly reduced.

Furrow irrigation is adapted to lands of irregular topography. An extensive literature study on all facets that can influence the different types of drippers under field conditions was undertaken.

Aspects that are addressed in this study include water quality, water treatment methods, inherent factors that effect emitter performance, filtering, system maintenance and design.

As noted previously, there are two features that distinguish a surface irrigation system: (a) the flow has a free surface responding to the gravitational gradient; and (b) the on-field means of conveyance and distribution is the field surface itself.

A surface irrigation event is composed of four phases as illustrated graphically in Figure 1. The surface irrigation system is a complex and dynamic hydrologic system and, thus, the evaluation processes are important to optimize the use of water resources in this system.

A summary of the data arising from a field evaluation is enumerated below. Center Pivot Irrigation. Water is scattered throughout the land by a machine of sprinklers that move on wheeled towers in degrees pattern or a circle that would move around the land and sprinkle water all over the soil and it is really efficient and effective and this procedure or system is well recommended in a lot of countries but mostly used in the USA.

In order to calculate the in-field distribution of water by the irrigation system, otherwise known as the uniformity, to work out the efficiency and to determine how adequately the irrigation system met the irrigation target application, specific evaluation procedures for specific irrigation systems must be followed.

• Topography and field layout must be recorded. • Farmer’s preferences in irrigation methods, available operation time, farm labor, cultural practices, and management skills must be noted for selecting and planning the type and method of irrigation. The most opportune time to discuss and review problems and revise management plans.

SUB-SURFACE IRRIGATION Applied in places where natural soil and topographic condition favour water application to the soil under the surface, a practice called sub-surface irrigation. These conditions include: a) Impervious layer at 15 cm depth or more b) Pervious soil underlying the restricting layer.

Flood irrigation. Flooding fields with water from buckets or pumps is one of the simplest methods of irrigation. The advantage is that it requires little energy or equipment. Done improperly, however, it can waste water and erode and salinize the soil.

Finally the section gives/outlines some important issues (demerits) which are not addressed in the CIE method.
