Abstract:

Improving both the efficiency of water uses and water productivity in irrigation require appropriate solutions for design, management and maintenance of irrigation systems. Various software tools proved useful for designing new systems and to improve functioning and management of systems under operation. In this complex context, it is important that farmers could rely on instruments and practices that enable a better management of water at the field scale, whatever the irrigation method they adopt. Development of software tool aimed to design and perform cost economics analysis of sprinkler irrigation system. Algorithm prepared according to the actual design of the sprinkler irrigation system and then the interface was prepared in Visual Basic Studio 2008 C language. The step by step procedure followed in the design of the sprinkler irrigation system by providing different screens with the design of different accessories on along. Initially software tool calculates the crop water requirement for the crops included in database as the CROPWAT is linked with it. Furthermore, the selection of sprinkler, lateral, submain and main in terms of diameter and length done on the basis of permissible head loss. Provided simple informative bullets and tabs are easy to understand to perform the operation. Software allows user to alternate the values at distant stages besides database on the basis of field conditions that ultimately increase practical applicability of the tool. The software tool minimizes the time required for design and also quotation for the survey.
