Development of technical and financial norms and standards for drainage of irrigated lands: Volume 2
Expanded Title:There are numerous benefits, both economic and environmental, of well designed and constructed surface and sub-surface drainage systems in irrigated agricultural lands. The need arose in South Africa to research the technical and financial aspects of drainage systems to ensure that current practices were technically sound as well as being financially feasible. Thus, through funding from the Water Research Commission, the project, “Development of Technical and Financial Norms and Standards for the Drainage of Irrigated Lands”, was initiated. As a result of thorough research three comprehensive volumes were produced. The manual provides a comprehensive text on the subject of both the technical and financial aspects of surface and sub- surface drainage and will benefit the following persons in both the engineering and financial sectors: • Engineering technicians in the country’s provincial agricultural departments • Financial and technical advisors at co-operatives and agri-businesses who offer financial and technical advice to farmers • Banks who offer financial assistance to farmers • Technical personnel at engineering consultancies • Students in the field of agricultural or bio-resources engineering In addition examples are presented in the text which illustrate application of the underlying scientific and economic principles which are unique to the field of drainage.
