irrigation systems remains low. With increasing competition from other sectors, irrigation is under pressure to reduce its share of water use. At the same time irrigation is regarded as one of the main means for increasing food production and rural incomes.

This is why it is imperative to modernize irrigation systems andFile Size: 1MB. The review covers 6 gravity irrigation schemes in Thailand, Myanmar, and Vietnam.

The objectives of irrigation development set forth by colonial regimes, national. Asia's irrigation challenges. Moving forward, there is a need for more intricate understanding of the changing rural economy and to provide robust solutions to overcome: Outdated irrigation systems.

A rigorous review of the current status of irrigation performance and defining areas of weakness is required.

Improving Irrigation in Asia is based on a longitudinal study over two decades on innovative intervention for sustained performance of irrigation systems.

The work identifies key factors that can help explain the performance of interventions, and explicates lessons for resource management and the management of development assistance. Similarly, hydro-electricity policies in Southeast Asia will influence the future course of irrigation development in the region, as will cotton prices and quotas in Central Asia.

In summary, the strategy is to look for solutions that work in practice and these need not necessarily be ideal ‘text book’ solutions. Concepts of polycentric water governance can contribute to research and policy in Southeast Asia, but need to consider important aspects of the institutional context including the role of village governments, national intervention in basin management, the strength of hydraulic bureaucracies, and subsidy : B.

Studies indicate that the benefits of aerated irrigation water include enhanced crop growth and improvements in water use efficiency. The Irrigation Land Management (ILM) model was developed as a research tool to simulate the demand and response of a multiple‐field multicrop irrigation system in a variety of environments in order to assist managers in exploring strategies that can be used to improve system performance.

The degree of performance achieved in managing irrigation projects depends on a number of physical, social and institutional factors and to a large extent on the basic physical infrastructure by: Agricultural land under irrigation; past and present trends.

Vietnam is one of the largest rice exporter since the late s and early s. Previous to the Doi Moi reforms initiated inthe country was dependent on net imports of rice. After having changed the policies and opened the market, Vietnam was finally able to earn foreign exchange within these years and hence Agricultural land: 94, km² (%).
