Maximization of application efficiency of furrow irrigation: Simplified analysis

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Application efficiency is the primary criteria for furrow irrigation system design and management. In this study, optimality conditions are derived for the cases in which application efficiency is a function of either furrow length or furrow inflow rate. The optimality conditions have been evaluated by comparing their output with the output of a surface irrigation simulation model.
