The development of a border strip irrigation system in the Nicola Valley Madani, Seyed Ali


The research reported has been carried out to develop a border irrigation system for the semi-arid region in the Nicola Valley in British Columbia. To develop a border irrigation system in the Valley a 60 acre field was surveyed and the design of land grading prepared. A small section of the larger prepared field was selected for this study and three border strips, each having the same length with different widths, were constructed. .Formulas and curves were used for the design calculation of slope, discharge, depth of water to be applied, required amount of water, and the time of application for each strip. Infiltration rates, soil moisture capacities and soil classification are reported.
