Irrigation practices should not be merely copied from irrigation practices reported as successful elsewhere without carefully comparing all factors involved. A permanently successful irrigated agriculture and the efficient use of limited water supplies requires that the irrigation, fertilization and other cultural practices all be adjusted carefully to match local conditions. 8 DRAINAGE NEEDS AND METHODS Agricultural drainage is the provision of a suitable system for the removal of excess irrigation/ rainfall water from the land surface so as to facilitate available soil moisture condition for the growth of plants to give sustained yield; to prevent soil moisture accumulation to allow earlier sowing.
