Programming irrigation for greater efficiency implies
maximizing water use efficiency. However, though this in
itself is an important objective for water deficient areas,
the farm manager or owner is more interested in maximizing
his net income by optimum use of irrigation water, fertilizers,
and other inter-related inputs. Fortunately, if maximum
net income is achieved, optimum water use efficiency
usually has also been attained. More progress toward
greater efficiency can be expected by working toward the
goal of greater net income rather than greater water use
efficiency, per se.
