More than 80 per cent of the irrigated land in the
United States is served by surface irrigation systems,
of which about 90 per cent is furrow-irrigated. The furrow
irrigation system has been used extensively because of its
relative simplicity, adaptability, and low initial investment
for most soils and cropping systems. This use has
persisted for many decades even though soil and water
losses may be high on many fields. Efficiencies are
generally low in most furrow-irrigated fields, although
irrigation efficiency can be relatively high in surface systems
that are well designed, constructed and operated.
