      A revolution in food systems—food supply chains upstream from farms, to the food industry in the midstream segments of processing and wholesale and in the downstream segment of retail, then on to consumers—has been under way in the United States for more than a century and in developing countries for more than three decades. The transformation includes extensive consolidation, very rapid Cited by: Towards an Economics of Irrigation Networks Karl Jandocy, Ruben Juarez z, and James Roumasset x May Abstract Both the economics and the engineering of irrigation design are typically based on the assumption of a single source.

For example, for a Rio Grande silty loam soil with a water-holding capacity of 7 inches and a MAD of 60 percent, irrigation is needed at the point. The Economics Of Irrigation [C Clark] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying : C Clark.

Irrigation can improve crop production, reduce yield vari-ability and increase profits. But choosing and buying an irriga-tion system are both expensive and complex. When considering investing in an irrigation system, farmers must keep in mind several major factors: the availability of water; the system’s application efficiency; the depth fromFile Size: 1MB.

An array of irrigation systems are available which can be broadly classified as being gravity flow or pressurized. Pressurized irrigation systems provide better control on the amount of applied water and, in most cases, better irrigation uniformity than gravity flow systems.

They also have a higher initial capital cost than gravity flow systems and an analysis is required to determine whether Cited by: Land allocation to irrigation at the farm level Irrigation technology choice at the farm level Productivity of water Existence of low-capital efficient irrigation technologies Regional allocation of water The basic economics of oversized water projects Management of.

Irrigation is the application of controlled amounts of water to plants at needed intervals. Irrigation helps to grow agricultural crops, maintain landscapes, and revegetate disturbed soils in dry areas and during periods of less than average rainfall.

Irrigation also has other uses in crop production, including frost protection, suppressing weed growth in grain fields and preventing soil. Abstract. This review of economic aspects of irrigation is highly selective. It deliberately focuses on positive aspects of irrigation development although it is of necessity somewhat defensive in by: The Irrigation Association’s advocacy efforts are driven by a series of position statements that have been vetted by our members and approved by the Board of Directors.

The IA’s positions reflect our mission to promote efficient irrigation, ensure long-term sustainability of water.

Describes system-oriented factors that should be considered when changing sprinkler packages on a center pivot irrigation system. Managing Furrow Irrigation Systems, G Proper furrow irrigation practices can minimize water application, irrigation costs and chemical leaching and result in.

Choosing and buying an irrigation system for crop production can be expensive and complex. This publication discusses five common types of irrigation systems used in Texas: furrow (or surface); mid-elevation spray application center pivot; low elevation spray application center pivot; low energy precision application center pivot; and subsurface drip irrigation.

Chapter 4F: Irrigation Water Management Soil-Water-Plant Relationships Effective and efficient irrigation begins with a basic understanding of the relation-ships among soil, water, and plants.

Figure 4f-2 illustrates the on-farm hydrologic cycle for irrigated lands, and Table 4f-1 provides definitions of several terms associated with irrigation. rate. The net investment for a subsurface drip irrigation system, $1, per acre, is substantially less than the gross investment of $1, per acre (Table 2).

Of all the confrontations man has engineered with nature, irrigation systems have had the most widespread and far-reaching impact on the natural environment.

Over a quarter of a billion hectares of the planet are irrigated and entire countries depend on irrigation for their survival and existence. Considering the importance of irrigation schemes, it is unfortunate that until recently the 1/5(1).

It is also suitable to coarse sandy terrain where the percolation loss is more and where as a consequence, the frequency of irrigation. Plain Soils, and AG, Operating Controlled Drainage and Subirrigation Systems.

On poorly drained soils these systems can be very cost effective when compared to the combination of a conventional drainage system and an overhead sprinkler irrigation system.

However, their cost. the operator’s ability to evaluate irrigation system costs. The microcomputer model, Irrigation Economics Evaluation System (IEES), can be used to estimate costs under a vari-ety of operating conditions and evaluate adjustments of irri-gation systems for efficient and economical water use.

The IEES computer model can be used to estimate. Page | 2 Irrigation Economics and Agronomics Farm overhead costs include property taxes, auto expenses, building repairs, insurance, and small tools.

Additionally, irrigation also has a few other uses in crop production, which include protecting plants against frost, suppressing weed growth in grain fields and preventing soil consolidation.

Irrigation is often studied together with drainage, which is the natural or artificial removal of surface and sub-surface water from a given area.
