Irrigation Management Transfer in this respect is considered to be very specific, while the policies of governments, particularly countries with a high, medium and low Human Development Index1, are not always transferring irrigation management to the local authority, nor to the Water User Association (WUA).
Some. irrigation systems would create a binding commitment from water users to be more effective and responsible towards their obligations inspired the process of irrigation management transfer (IMT).
Therefore, IMT is the process of devolvement of authority and responsibility from government agencies.
Principles and Practices of Irrigation Management for Vegetables 2 Irrigation Water Quality Criteria Understanding irrigation water quality is critical for sustainability of vegetable production. In some areas of Florida, water quality impacts crop productivity more than soil fertility, pest and weed control, variety, and other factors.
Download Irrigation Engineering By – Irrigation involves the artificial application of water to soil, usually for assisting the growth of crops in dry areas or where there is a shortage of the process of agriculture becomes increasingly mechanised, the application of scientific methods and technology to the procedure of irrigation comes as no surprise.
In the area of institutional reform, the devolution of management and financial responsibility from irrigation systems managers to local user groups has gained prominence. The popular terms for this are participatory irrigation management (PIM), and irrigation management transfer.
irrigation management. In Viet Nam, for example, the decree on grassroots democratization provides strong underpinning for participatory planning and development, while in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR), the transfer of irrigation management to farmers is prescribed by a national policy.
The paper reviews experiences of irrigation management transfer in smallholder irrigation systems in several African countries, and compares the observed outcomes with reported experiences in Asia and in commercial farming in Africa. The authors conclude that instances of successful trans-fers, in the smallholder sector, are very few in Africa.
The governments decided to introduce institutional reforms in the water sector and transfer the responsibility for operation and maintenance (O&M) of irrigation systems to water users. A key element of irrigation management transfer (IMT) became the creation of Water Users Associations (WUAs) and Canal Management Organisations (CMOs).
Transfer may also encompass the entire irrigation system, including intake, distribution and drainage works. IMT can even comprise transfer of responsibility for groups of separate systems to management entities under farmer control (IIMI,p. Irrigation Management Transfer as a strategy has gained wide acceptance in policy.
irrigation management transfer (IMT) entails the partial or complete transfer of irrigation management rights to and responsibilities for an irrigation (sub) system from government to farmer organizations, water user associations (WUAs), other non-governmental agencies (including the private sector) or local government agencies.
The. Suhardiman and Mollinga () argue that the presentation of deferred maintenance as the core problem in irrigation systems management is rooted in the role of international donors and their positioning of irrigation physical infrastructure as the key element to systems performance. Irrigation management transfer (IMT) can be defined as the turning over of authority and responsibility to manage irrigation systems from government agencies to water user associations.
This involves two key roles: the authority to define what the irrigation services will be and the authority to arrange for the provision of those services. In the case of irrigation management with an Irrigation Water Meter, the regulated water deficit is established simply with the change of the water level in the interior of the evaporation reservoir, positioning the mark of the sliding rod in a lower value in the level ruler than the one recommended by the manufacturer of the equipment for each.
other management measures (nutrients and pesticides) do not reduce concentrations in the discharge, increasing water use efficiency would not be considered part of the management measure. (3) In some irrigation districts, the time interval between the order for and the delivery of irrigation water to the farm may limit the irrigator’s ability to.

Irrigation Management Transfer (IMT), that is, the relocation of responsibility and authority for irrigation management from government agencies to the users, such as water users' associations, has been adopted in more than 25 countries across the world.
Abstract. The overall purpose of the research is to provide guidelines for irrigation management transfer (IMT) applicable to the conditions which currently prevail in Central Asia.
management and irrigation management transfer. Beyond the objective of improving financing of operation and maintenance of the systems thanks to farmers’ has been promoting the modernization of irrigation systems in Asia with a focus on service oriented management.
FAO defines modernization of the irrigation systems. Participatory irrigation, where farmers are given greater control and management responsibility, has been a topic of controversy for many years.
Initially seen as a panacea for dealing with weaknesses in state-run irrigation, participatory irrigation has generated mixed results, especially in South Asia.
The long history of irrigation development in Asia reveals that farmers need to be involved in the planning decisions, contribute at least a part of the capital costs, and have full responsibility for operation and maintenance to make the smallholder irrigation schemes sustainable (FAO,Mukhenji and Facon, ).

Issue 2 Issue 1 A wide array of “on‐farm” agricultural management technologies and practices are available or development that could increase yields and decrease pollution and water use; for example reducing yield gaps (not as high in Asia as in Africa), reducing subsidies, change land use and crop types, improving irrigation efficiency, diversified and.
Some irrigation management transfers programs are indeed successful, especially if the infrastructure was improved before transfer took place. Clemmens and Molden () discuss recent work on performance assessment in a special issue of Irrigation Science entitled ‘Irrigation Science on Water productivity: science and practice’.Water User Groups in Central Asia: Emerging Form of Collective Action in Irrigation Water Management Article (PDF Available) in Water Resources Management 24(5) March with Reads.Several states in India, with encouragement from the central government, are considering or implementing programmes to transfer some irrigation system management responsibilities from the government irrigation agencies to water user associations.
It is expected that management transfer will have 3 beneficial results: (1) crop production will increase because .
