Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Irrigation Systems for the 21st Century


Methods for estimating the peak period irrigation water requirement were evaluated as a component of the review of irrigation facility sizing criteria conducted for the Engineering and Research Center of the U. S. Bureau of Reclamation. The review study addressed the sensitivity of the irrigation water requirement to variation in its components: usable soil moisture equations for crop water requirement, and effective prescription. The sensitivity of the irrigation water requirement to the frequency method used was also addressed.
