Irrigation scheduling is the fourth in a series of training manuals on irrigation. The manual describes briefly the influence of water shortages on the yields of various crops. It provides some simple methods to determine the irrigation schedule of field crops. A separate chapter is devoted to the determination of the irrigation schedule for paddy rice.
This manual is partially based on FAO Irrigation and Drainage Papers 24 "Crop water requirements" and 33 "Yield response to water". Details of both publications are provided in the section "Suggested Further Reading".
