Pumping Plant Efficiency and Irrigation Costs

COLLEGE STATION, TX

Inefficient pumps and power units are major contributors to excessively high irrigation costs. To minimize fuel consumption and pumping cost, pumping equipment must be carefully selected, properly maintained and replaced when necessary to maintain high efficiency. Efficient pumping plants with their lower pumping cost combined with efficient application of carefully timed irrigations can make the difference between profit and loss in irrigated crop production.

Irrigation of Forage Crops

COLLEGE STATION, TX

Irrigation can increase the production of forages where rainfall is limited. In planning an irrigation system it is important for farmers to know how to determine the water requirements of the crops they are growing. Geographic location, soil type, time of the season, and the way a crop responds to water all affect the amount of water a particular crop needs. Farmers should also know the characterisitics of different irrigation systems.

LEPA Conversion and Management

COLLEGE STATION, TX

Center pivot irrigation is used widely in Texas, largely because of the low labor requirements, improved water distribution, and relatively low capital costs on a per irrigated acre basis. There are approximately 9,500 pivots in operation, irrigating 1.75 million acres. Center pivot technology has developed greatly since it was patented in 1952. Escalating energy costs in the 70s and 80s contributed to the development of more efficient pivot technology. In certain areas of Texas, concern for the decline in underground aquifers and the long-term availability of water for irrigation has continued to foster the development and adoption of water conserving nozzles and pivot systems.

Measuring Seepage Losses from Canals Using the Ponding Test Method

COLLEGE STATION, TX

Seepage losses from canals can be significant. The Texas AgriLife Extension Service has measured seepage loss rates ranging from 23 to 1,690 acre-feet per mile (per year) in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas (see Table 1). Measuring seepage loss rates is one of the best ways to prioritize canals for maintenance and rehabilitation and determine the effectiveness of canal improvements quantified through pre- and post-rehabilitation testing.

Irrigation District Efficiencies and Potential Water Savings in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas

COLLEGE STATION, TX

Agriculture holds about 90 percent of all the water rights in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. Rapidly growing municipalities and industries are focusing the need to free up water for transfer from agriculture. This paper will give the results of an analysis of the 28 irrigation districts including their current efficiencies and opportunities for water savings. The analysis is based on reported efficiencies of each district, GIS-based maps and databases of district infrastructure, measurement of canal seepage losses, accounting systems, etc. Preliminary analysis indicate a potential water savings of 54,000 to 223,000 ac-ft/yr could result from improvements in the conveyance efficiency of 28 districts through renovations such as canal lining and pipeline replacement. Implementing a combination of on-farm practices of metering, gated pipe water delivery, and improved water management and/or technology could result in a water savings of between 98,000 and 217,000 ac-ft/yr.

Implementation of a District Management System in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas

COLLEGE STATION, TX

In 1998, eight irrigation districts in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas initiated efforts to develop GIS-based District Management Systems (DMS). This paper provides a description of GIS (geographical information system) as applied to irrigation districts, its potential for improving the dayto-day management of districts, and the progress and difficulties encountered by the 8 districts in GIS mapping and implementation. Examples of how districts are using GIS are given, along with the value and use of the DMS in a regional water planning project.
