A method has been developed to estimate the optimal uniformity of water distribution, taking land slope into account. Specific expressions were derived for a particular case represented by a citrus grove irrigated by a microirrigation system. This particular case illustrates the procedure and enables it to be compared with choice criteria commonly followed in practice, based on generic indications given in literature.
