    I am really happy I found this company, and its owner, Guillermo. Five things that make Rain on Your Land Irrigation a great choice: (1) Very flexible with my changing schedules (2) extreme pride in their work (they used commercial grade equipment when other companies bid residential grade) (3) great design (I have 12 zones and he future-proofed it for things I'd like to do over . These steep land dams come at a high price since great deals of earth need to be moved to store relatively little water in these narrow dams. Their water will be freely available for use in pressurized and flood irrigation just about anywhere on the property.

The irrigation designer trying to cover a steep slope has arrived at what many consider to be the greatest challenge in irrigation steep slopes for which we design irrigation systems are generally the by-products of human activity.

Many steep slopes exist in natural surroundings, but seldom call for irrigation. Irrigation Guide Acknowledgments PartIrrigation Guide, is an addition to the National Engineering Hand-book series.

The document was initially prepared by Elwin A. Ross, irriga-tion engineer, NRCS, Engineering Division, Washington, DC, (retired) with primary input and review from Leland A. Hardy, irrigation engineer. There are many types of slopes, from gently undulating backyards and rolling hills to precipitous mountainsides.

By necessity, many growers have to garden or farm on uneven terrain, forced to terrace their land or take advantage of natural benches. Fortunately, drip irrigation can provide an even flow in these situations through the use of pressure.

Based on the author’s book “Bidding & Estimating for Landscape & Irrigation Contractors,” this streamlined version is designed for improved comprehension and immediate application. Includes detailed, progressive examples for easy reference and a supporting spreadsheet (requires Microsoft Excel 97 or higher).

• Land is divided in to narrow strips (width about 20m & length about m), separated by borders/levees. • Each strip (of gentle slope) is irrigated independently. Irrigation is the application of controlled amounts of water to plants at needed intervals.

Irrigation helps to grow agricultural crops, maintain landscapes, and revegetate disturbed soils in dry areas and during periods of less than average rainfall.

Irrigation also has other uses in crop production, including frost protection, suppressing weed growth in grain fields and preventing soil. On sloping land, where terraces are used, the irrigation water is supplied to the highest terrace, and then allowed to flow to a lower terrace and so on.

In Figure 16 the water is supplied to the highest terrace (a.1) and is allowed to flow through terrace a.2 until the lowest terrace (a.3) is. land with soil slow to take water. Extreme care is needed in applying water to slopes of more than 2%.

Provides uniform wetting and prevents erosive water accumulation on land too rolling or steep for borders or basins. Makes use of small streams. Figure Corrugations are sometimes used to supplement border irrigation.

The corrugation method is well adapted for irrigating land that is steep or irregular. Often, new land may be cleared and put into production the first year.

The cost of leveling and the delay in time before planting may be largely eliminated. Agronomy Irrigation & Drainage, TIllage 22 1. A characteristic of loess or windblown soil parent material is its a.

The most recognized land-forming structure is the bench terrace that is used to grow crops on very steep slopes in the mountainous regions of the world. Keyline design was popularized in P. Yeomans’s book Water for Every ripping to control rainfall runoff and enable controlled flood irrigation of undulating land without the need.

Surface irrigation is practiced on only about 39% of the irrigated crop land in the USA but on far more, 85%, worldwide. Wherever surface irrigation is practiced, improved irrigation scheduling and better water control can reduce erosion and soil loss while minimizing off.

Fig. Border irrigation. iii. Basin irrigation. Basins are horizontal, flat plots of land, surrounded by small dykes or bunds.

The banks prevent the water from flowing to the surrounding fields. Basin irrigation is commonly used for rice grown on flat.

Irrigation: An Historical Perspective Siltation of ancient dams and reservoirs is a testament to inadequate soil conservation measures that eventually reduced the productivity of the land as well as destroyed the capacity of reservoirs to provide an adequate supply of water (3).

I searched youtube and came up empty. I did find and watch a video from Ben Faulk on how he handled his "steep slope", but in the video it looked like a very gentle slope he was talking about, so I'm not sure it really applies to the land I've been looking at.

Prime agricultural soils are often found in flood-plain, where the land is nutrient-rich and fertile. Hillsides, in contrast, can bring a range of challenges for the farmer: nutrient-poor soil, erosion, and nutrient run-off to name a few.

Farming problems in mountain areas, forest depletion, and pressure on rangelands are discussed. Major issues and their solution are considered in the areas of soil fertility, rangeland management, forest resources management, steep sloping land farming, and moisture conservation.

Pages:. In mountainous areas, the Maya made terraces on the steep hillsides. Small fields are cut into a hillside and held with a retaining wall. These create a series of steps that reduce water runoff and erosion and can be planted with maize or other crops. These terraces make the most productive use of mountainous or hilly land.

documented irrigation history. Applying water to land that has not been historically irrigated is considered an ‘expansion of use’ and is prohibited by many ditch companies.

There may be localized exceptions, so check with your ditch company or local District of the Colorado Division of Water Resources office to determine if this provision.

The design of irrigation, pumping, and drainage systems using Excel and Visual Basic for Applications programs are explained for both graduate and undergraduate students and practicing engineers.

The book emphasizes environmental protection. Drip irrigation works best in larger gardens configured in long, straight rows. Their versatility makes them a good choice for gardeners dealing with sloped ground. The higher start-up cost means a larger investment, but most drip systems will perform for years to come.

Southern California desert restorationists have studied tradi-tional methods and developed innovative ways to efficiently water.irrigation application methods are given in Table 1.

For example, surface irrigation methods (furrow, border, and level basin) are more suitable to land that is relatively flat with a uniform slope.
