A computer model has been developed to predict present and future regional water, energy, labor, and capital requirements of irrigated agricultural production in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.

The energy requirements calculated were on-farm pumping, and total energies. Total energies are the. Irrigation Scheduling Practices in the Northwest ES-3 Phase II Report 1.

Effects of scientific irrigation scheduling on water and energy use has been the subject of much interest in the Pacific Northwest for at least the past two decades.

A number of studies have been sponsored by. beneficial uses of irrigation water are frost protection, crop quality, crop cooling, chemigation, desirable saline and sodic balance maintenance, and leaching of undesirable soil chemicals.

The Irrigation Guide includes current information and technical data on irrigation systems and hardware, automation, new techniques, soils, climate, water. Irrigation Scheduling Practices in the Northwest ES-4 commercial irrigation scheduling services on a contract basis, while 96 (52 percent) use on-farm equipment and methods for scheduling.

A large majority (76 percent) of farmers report using nonscientific irrigation scheduling methods.

In a solar-powered irrigation systems (SPIS), electricity is generated by solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and used to operate pumps for the abstraction, lifting and/or distribution of irrigation water.

Not all of the water applied to the field is available for use by the plant, since some frac- tion is lost to evaporation, deep percolation, or runoff. Irrigation technology and management.

EO has water provisions that require Federal agencies to improve water use efficiency and management as follows: 1. Reduce potable water use 2% annually through fiscal year (FY)or 26% by the end of fiscal yearrelative to a fiscal year baseline.

baseline water use rate of 55, gallons per month. Therefore, estimated annual water use without irrigation is equal to: 55, gallons per month x 12 m onths =gallons per year To estimate irrigation water use, subtract this estimated annual baseline water use from the metered total presented in.

The Pacific Northwest faces some critical energy issues over the next 20 years. There is significant uncertainty about energy supplies, energy prices, and the implications of competitive energy.

In order to compare the two different installations, technical properties of the plants and their water consumption are considered. This study highlights what are the aspects to be considered in optimizing the water use efficiency. Keywords: sprinkler irrigation, drip irrigation, water consumption.

KeywordsAuthor: M. Deangelis, G. Negrini. The impact of DU on energy consumption is compounded by pump inefficiencies. Figure 2 shows the effect of DU on the amount of energy used to pump water.

The irrigation volume is the same as the previous example: one-third inch irrigation on 20 acres. The energy consumption numbers are File Size: 1MB.

AgWeatherNet (AWN) provides Washington State farmers, gardeners, researchers and policy makers with weather data and weather-related decision-support tools to improve agricultural production (yield and quality), efficiency, and profitability while minimizing environmental impacts.

AWN was established to serve irrigated agriculture in central Washington, but with a legislative mandate to serve. Relief grants were used to provide backup or emergency water supplies for irrigation or human consumption where wells were failing or pumping capacity was inadequate.

These small and typically rural systems are relatively more vulnerable to drought impacts when compared to larger urban systems (Ch.

Ag & Rural, KM 4).Without enough water, crops may develop late, show stunted growth, or yield smaller harvests. Irrigation systems in the interior may be strained. Livestock may be smaller or require supplemental water and feed, especially where the growth of pastureland is stunted.

Ranchers may reduce their herd sizes.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 .
