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.
