Successful on‐farm irrigation scheduling requires that water delivery projects adopt a service concept, and that water deliveries be made with a high degree of reliability. An arranged delivery schedule and seasonal volumetric allocations are additional requirements. Until these conditions are met, attempts to implement modem on‐farm irrigation scheduling techniques to maximize water use efficiency and yields will be only partially successful.
