Abstract
ABSTRACT Level basins are designed based upon completion-of-advance irrigation. Designs are used for fields where water control is not practical or practiced. The design determines either the run length or the infiltrated depth when the other is specified. The resulting design provides for applying a relatively constant infiltrated depth when the unit inflow rate varies by a factor of four from a target unit inflow rate.

In this research we explore the potential of precision surface irrigation to improve irrigation performance under the warabandi system prevalent in the Indus Basin Irrigation System. Data on field dimensions, field slopes along with characteristic soil infiltration properties and outlet discharge were collected through a survey of a sample tertiary unit of Maira Branch Canal, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, Pakistan. The performance of all fields in the tertiary unit was analysed and reported in ag...

AbstractA well-designed level basin irrigation system is easy to manage and has significant potential for achieving high application efficiency and improved salinity control, particularly when the field is laser-leveled. Over the years, three different criteria have arisen to design level basin irrigation systems. These are the volume-balance design criterion proposed by the Soil Conservation Service of the USDA, the limiting length design criterion, and the completion-of-advance design criterio...

Level-basin irrigation is extensively used in South-Western United States where water is very expensive. A well designed level-basin irrigation system is easy to manage, and has significant potential for achieving higher application efficiency and improved salinity control, particularly when the field is laser-leveled. Over the years, three different criteria have evolved to design level-basin irrigation systems: the volume-balance design criterion proposed by the Soil Conservation Service (SCS)...

Abstract Basin irrigation layouts are used extensively for irrigation of various types of crops worldwide. Basin irrigation is characterised by ground levelled to zero slope in both directions and each unit enclosed by dykes. Single closed level basins and sequential multiple basin layouts offer potentially high uniformity of application, reduced runoff and low labour requirements. Several simulation models have been developed to study the flow processes involved during an irrigation event in ba...

Application efficiency (Ea) is the primary criterion for border irrigation design and management. The objective of this study is to analyze the behavior of the application efficiency function of border irrigation with respect to border length (L) and unit inlet flow rate (qo), given a target minimum application depth. The results show that the application efficiency function is unimodal with respect to L and qo. Optimality conditions are derived for both the Ea(L) and Ea(qo) functions, based on ...

Contour basin irrigation layouts are used in Australia for sequential cultivation of rice and other crops on soils with low infiltration rates. Multiple interconnected basins through gates installed in the check banks and backflow at the inlet end are unique features of contour basin layouts used in southeast Australia. Design and management guidelines were developed using a two-dimensional computer simulation model (COBASIM) for contour basin layouts. The computer model was used to simulate and...

Application efficiency is the primary criterion for furrow irrigation system design and management. In this study, the application efficiency function of a furrow irrigation system is analyzed. The application efficiency function is unimodal with respect to inlet flow rate and furrow length. Optimality conditions are derived for the cases in which application efficiency is a function of either furrow length or flow rate. Simple and sufficiently accurate equations and design and management rules ...

This paper describes a new procedure for the design of level-basin irrigation systems which is based on the irrigator's cutoff criteria. Design with this procedure, hopefully, will be more transferable to users and will allow basin designs to be adopted to local practices. Comparisons are made to existing design procedures, and it is shown that many of them can be expressed in terms of this new procedure, available in the form of a computer program. A sensitivity analysis was used to confirm the...

Abstract A volume-balance technique utilizing irrigation advance and recession functions, numerical integration, and an optimization procedure was developed to determine infiltration parameters. The procedure is simple yet rational and accounts for spatial variability of soil characteristics. The required data are flow rate, the coefficients and exponents of the advance and recession functions, and inflow shut-off time. In a field experiment on a clay loam soil (typical of southern Alberta) at t...
