Abstract: An irrigation allocation model using multiperiod linear programming was developed to recommend canal water allocation among different irrigated fields to maximize net annual benefits for given conditions. These conditions include irrigation water demands for each field, crop response functions, water supply quantities, canal carrying capacity, water cost, crop values and minimum irrigation limitations for surface irrigation systems. The model was validated using the soils, crops, canal description and management data of the Maricopa Agricultural Center (MAC), University of Arizona.
