Abstract: Variable irrigation supply and the independent character of the S. Asian small-holder combine to present a difficult problem in irrigation management. Attempts to introduce advanced technology in water delivery systems can be frustrated by lack of coordination of demand at the farm level. Groundwater development can provide much-needed flexibility in delivery but can have its own problems, particularly between small individually-owned shallow wells and large deep wells.
