The method of delivery of irrigation water to farmers from irrigation districts vary considerably from one project to another. Rotation delivery systems usually place too many restrictions on farm irrigation practices. Demand delivery systems often place too many requirements on the water distribution system. Arranged distribution systems, where farmers arrange the delivery of water with the irrigation district, represent a practical compromise, giving the farmers a degree of flexibility while not requiring drastic changes in delivery system capabilities. This paper describes arranged delivery schedules, their requirements and limitations, and presents some case studies on their use.
