ARC Irrigation Design Manual

The purpose of the manual is to serve as a reference guide for producers for the planning, choice installation, management and maintenance of an irrigation system. In most cases, the chapters contain an introductory portion from the existing Irrigation Design Manual. This basic information is of importance for both the irrigation consultant who has to design and plan the system, as well as for the producer who has to operate the system. It should help with multi-disciplinary cooperation when a system is planned. In most cases, the chapters contain a portion, which informs on the basic practical aspects regarding installation, management and maintenance of an irrigation system. If specific specialist information is required, it is recommended that a professional in the specific area of expertise be consulted.
