Abstract: 'Volume-based Equity' is proposed as a means of improving the uniformity of water delivery in a rotation irrigation system. Management procedures are developed that can improve water delivery. Scheduling water delivery based on time equity is examined and compared with the management needed to accomplish volume equity in delivery. Volume equity is better, but requires closer cooperation between the management agency and the farmers. A procedure is outlined for accomplishing volume equity of water delivery in a rotation irrigation system.
