Water management strategies

The following are recommended water management strategies:

  • irrigation water use management, such as irrigation scheduling, volumetric measurement of water use, crop residue management, conservation tillage, and on-farm irrigation audits;
  • land management systems, including furrow dikes, land leveling, conversion from irrigated to dry land farming, and brush control/management;
  • on-farm delivery systems, such as lining of farm ditches, low pressure center pivot sprinkler systems, drip/micro irrigation systems, surge flow irrigation, and linear move sprinkler systems;
  • water district delivery systems, including lining of district irrigation canals and replacing irrigation district and lateral canals with pipelines; and
  • miscellaneous systems, such as water recovery and reuse.
