The furrow-to-furrow variability of irrigation water inflows is about twice as great with gated pipe and feed ditches as with siphon tubes. The average furrow infiltration coefficient of variation measured on 25 fields in southern Idaho was 25%. As a result of both variabilities, irrigation times and application rates must be increased to insure adequate water application to a desired portion of the field.
