Factors influencing the adoption of irrigation measurement tools in the Arkansas Delta

We address factors which may influence the adoption of flow meters and/or certain irrigation scheduling practices. Measuring irrigation flow enhances management of irrigation, which improve profits. It also serves as a useful tool in evaluating which conservation measures for irrigation to adopt. This enhanced management can come in the form of scheduling. While less sophisticated versions of it exist, newer, more scientific forms can lead to better efficiency of irrigation events. As groundwater supplies become more limited, the use of flow meters and/or efficient scheduling techniques will allow farmers to better manage water resources.
