WATER CONSERVATION TECHNIQUES AND EQUIPMENT FOR LIMITED SUPPLIES. Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • When water is very limited relative to land area, the production philosophy should change from maximizing yields to that of maximizing net profit over the total available land area. Numerous management techniques are offered for limited water application based on over 30 years of research and experience in an area which is experiencing a continuous water level decline and a partial transition back to dryland farming. Emphasis is placed on integrating newly developed irrigation application systems such as the TAES multifunction System (LEPA II), rainfall saving techniques, and hydrologic frequency analysis, to achieve the maximum utilization of the total water resource.
