Conference paper


Reasonably good estimates of consumptive use, farm and irrigation water requirements are essential in planning, design and operation of irrigation add drainage systems, and for evaluation and management of hydrologic and water resources systems. The availability of climatic records for many planned irrigation areas, particularly in developing countries, is often a major problem. With the assigned climate data one then has to estimate the seemingly endless repetitive calculations of consumptive use for different types of crop, the farm and irrigation water requirements.
