    Good management is taking the guesswork out of irrigation. Combined with prescribed timing for irrigation specific crops, irrigation management involves measuring water at deliver points to determine exact amounts going to the field. There are several devices an irrigator can install for measuring water deliver in irrigation ditches or pipelines. Measuring water in surface irrigation systems is critical for peak efficiency management. Without knowing the amount of water being applied, it is difficult to make decisions on when to stop irrigating or when to irrigate next. A good irrigation manager should know the flow rate of the irrigation water, theFile Size: KB. IRRIGATION MANAGEMENT S E R I E S Irrigation Water Measurement Danny H. Rogers Extension Agricultural Engineer Richard D. Black Extension Agricultural Engineers Cooperative Extension Service Kansas State University Irrigation is the largest water use in Kansas. There are about 3 million irri-gated acres, of which nearly 95 percent is supplied.

GENERAL INFORMATION FOR WATER MEASUREMENT The standard term for rate of flow of water in an irrigation ditch is cubic feet per second (cfs), often called second-feet (sec-ft) or feet of water.

A cubic foot per second of water is flowing when a cubic foot volume of water (equal to 1 ft wide, 1 ft long, and 1 ft.

Water application measurement. Having good equipment is one thing; making it work correctly is quite another. Check out how well the irrigation system delivers water. The goal is the same as for fertilizer--every part of the lawn should receive the exact same amount. At each measurement location, record the depth of water using a flow measurement instrument like a wading rod or measuring tape.

Measure the velocity. For the purposes of irrigation ditches, there are generally two methods: the “two-point” method and the “six-tenths-depth” method: Two-Point Method. This method records velocity. water use efficiency or more importantly the water productivity.

This chapter explains in detail the concept and measurement of ‘water-use efficiency’ and ‘water productivity’ as applied at plant, field, farm, region/sub-basin, basin and national level through traditional and remote sensing based estimations. Effective irrigation water management begins with accurate water measurement.

Water measurement is required to determine both total volumes of water and flow rates pumped. Measurement of volumes will verify that the proper amount of water is applied at each irrigation and that amounts permitted by water management districts are not exceeded.

Soil water balance. Evapotranspiration can also be determined by measuring the various components of the soil water balance. The method consists of assessing the incoming and outgoing water flux into the crop root zone over some time period (Figure 6).

Water metering is the practice of measuring water meters measure the volume of water used by residential and commercial building units that are supplied with water by a public water supply system. They are also used to determine flow through a particular portion of the system. In most of the world water meters are calibrated in cubic metres (m 3) or litres, but in the United States.
