The importance of seasonal planning for irrigation water productivity: Inginimitiya experience


  • Gnanadasa, W. G.


The principal tool in water management in a major scheme is the seasonal planning for water balance. Therefore, the respective officers of such schemes must have this knowledge. Cultivation failures frequently take place in schemes where this method is not adopted. In most of the cases, proper seasonal planning is not done due to lack of interest, knowledge or data. As a result, there are delays in cultivation and decreases in yield, which in turn have a negative impact on farmers’ income and their living conditions.Length: pp.75-79
