On-farm performance evaluation of improved traditional small-scale irrigation practices: a case study from Dire Dawa area, Ethiopia



Irrigation and Drainage Systems 20(1): 83-98



Field evaluation of surface irrigation systems play a fundamental role to determine the efficiency of the system as it is being used and to identify management practices and system configurations that can be implemented to improve the irrigation efficiency. This study evaluated the performance of an improved traditional small-scale irrigation practice at Adada, a representative small-scale irrigation practice in Dire Dawa Administrative Council, Eastern Ethiopia.
