About the Book

Irrigation Theory and Practice is a comprehensive treatise on Water Resources Development and Irrigation Management. For the last 30 years the book has enjoyed the status of an encyclopedia on the subject and in spite of the various innovations during the period, has been in circulation because of its authoritative approach. It has now been thoroughly revised and updated, and thus substantially enlarged.In addition to the wholesale revision of the existing chapters, three new chapters have been added to the book, namely, 'Lift Irrigation Systems and their Design', Water Requirement of Crops and Irrigation Management', and 'Economic Evaluation of Irrigation Projects and Water Pricing Policy', There have been some other structural changes as well, like some chapters had to be split into two or three, necessitated due to the arrival of new methods and technology. Thus, the chapter on Water Conveyance and Control has been expanded and split into two: 'Open Channel Distribution in Command Areas', and 'Underground Pipeline System'. Similarly, the chapter on Water Application Methods has been split into three, namely, 'Surface Methods of Water Application', 'Sprinkler Irrigation' and 'Drip Irrigation' for a focused study of these techniques.
