What are the big six?


What crop are you growing?


What is the seasonal rainfall, and what is the irrigation requirement to make up the difference to meet the water requirement for your specific crop?

The field:
What shape? What slope?
The soil:

What type of soil and how well does it hold water?

The water source:

What is it (well, reservoir, etc.) and how much water volume do you have access to?


What energy source do you have, what is the price, and what restrictions do you have?


These outputs are critical to know because:

1. you can determine the right components you need (see Module 2)

2. the outputs make the basis for much of the information that you will need to provide to a hydraulic design engineer to design your irrigation system (see Module 3).
