Africa. The World Bank requirements are for detailed demand- and supply-side information for one irrigation region or scheme in South Africa. The Loskop Irrigation Scheme was chosen for this study, because of, among other reasons, the quality of data that is readily available.

Qualifications and Limitations. A soil survey of your irrigation development by an accredited soil surveyer is required in order to be eligible for relevant government incentive schemes.

Various incentives are available to growers in Australia, and are aimed at encouraging best practice in irrigation with the goal of reducing salinity impacts on the environment.

Since irrigation is often applied at high rates for short durations to dry soils, this has important implications for efficient and effective soil wetting. We recommend that irrigation management should address subcritical water repellency by lowering irrigation intensities and shortening the intervals between single irrigation by: 8.

Whereas irrigation and drainage are intended to address the shortage and surplus of soil water, respectively, an important aspect to address is also the management of salinity. Plants have a limited tolerance for soil water salinity, and despite significant gaps in our practical knowledge, an impression of acceptable salinities is available for many : Sjoerd E.A.T.M.
