This paper presents a framework irrigation managers can use in assessing performance of irrigation, and recommends a specific set of indicators for measuring performance that the authors believe are practical, useful, and generally applicable. Although the primary focus is on the management of canal systems for agricultural production, the paper also discusses indicators that can be used for. Irrigation Rehabilitation and Development Project (IRDP) provides support for: (a) rehabilitation of irrigation systems covering about , ha of irrigated areas; (b) the design and construction of a limited number of multi-purpose small dams and appurtenances, and associated irrigation conveyance and distribution systems in closed river basins; (c) establishment of hydro-meteorological.

Performance evaluation studies of major and medium irrigation projects suggest following measures for optimizing the benefits from these projects 1. Rehabilitation and restoration of damaged, silted canal system 2. Adequate maintenance of system 3. Selective lining of canal system 4. Realistic and scientific operation of system 5. Comparison of Performance Assessment Indicators for Evaluation of Irrigation Scheme Performances in Sri Lanka S.M.D.L.K. De Alwis and N.T.S. Wijesekara Abstract: Managing resources in a major irrigation scheme needs more attention on system performance in order to get optimum production out of available resources. In Sri Lanka most major.

The early form of irrigation system performance framework was developed by Small and Svendsen () on which irrigation system can be considered to be a subsystem nested within a larger set of agro-economic, socioeconomic and politico-economic systems ().The final output from the irrigation system serves as an input into an irrigated agriculture by: The productive performance of an irrigation system deals with the production efficiency of irrigation projects, and the methodology is explained using data from a real irrigation project.

The financial performance evaluation of a system, mandatory for assessing the self-sustenance of the project, is also discussed in the chapter using the data. Irrigation and FAO’s Programme to Increase Food Production To improve the performance of irrigation systems 4th Indicator:Overall irrigation efficiency assessment of the potential for low-cost irrigation development; and analysis of constraints and.

Incidents and rehabilitation case histories Papan dam studies and remedies C. Makinson JacobsGEBB Ltd, Reading, UK As part of a major irrigation refurbishment programme in Kyrgystan, seven major dams built in the Soviet era have been examined and rehabilitation measures designed and costed.

Background Two principal constraints to sustainable performance of major water schemes emerged from the Second Command Area Development Project (CAD-II) PPTA o Assessment of follow on projects including preliminary assessment of the Performance Based Irrigation Management 2.

Rehabilitated and Modernized Irrigation Schemes Irrigation Water Quality Check – Worksheet 8 Irrigation System Uniformity Check – Worksheet 9 Note: Worksheets 1(a), 2(a), 3(a), 4(a) and 5(a) are for sprinkler systems while 1(b), 2(b), 3(b), 4(b) and 5(b) are for trickle systems.

Worksheet 6 through 9 can be used for both systems. The basic components of an Irrigation System. Gaunta-Lomidur and East Estie irrigation projects are the functional schemes except the Ibinat (due to lack of reservoir water), and Ribb irrigation dam is the ongoing whereas the Gumera irrigation dam is the finished feasibility study.

This study is to evaluate the performance of the two small scale irrigation. rehabilitation and expansion of irrigation, with the aim of bridging the gap of million hectares by the year (Government of Kenya, ).Despite these efforts, food insecurity in Kenya still remains a challenge, since public irrigation schemes realizes only 40 per cent of.

Performance assessment is an essential management task. If the use of water for. programme. The project is called Sustainable Energy systems in New buildings - market introduction of feasibility studies under the Directive on Energy Performance of Buildings.

The main aim of the overall project is to develop and promote an “optimal” approach in order effectively to incorporate feasibility. Developed by a working group of the International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage (ICID) it provides a generic framework for performance assessment with guidance on the theory and practice.

Irrigation systems have several uses in addition to water delivery for crop ET. Water is required for a preseason operational test of the irrigation system to check for leaks and to ensure proper performance of the pump and power plant.

Irrigation water is also required for field preparation, crop establishment, crop growth and development, within. Basic principles. Certain concepts and principles are fundamental to successful land evaluation for irrigated agriculture.

The basic principles advocated by the Framework for Land Evaluation (FAO a), on which the methods described in this bulletin are based, are complementary to the principles of the US Bureau of Reclamation (see Chapter 10) which are specifically for irrigation. The actual irrigation design group assesses the information, specifies the precise crop water demands, does hydraulic computations in order to determine the pieces and structure of your irrigation system, the water pressure which will likely be utilized all through the irrigation system, as well as the irrigation.
