The objective of this CD-ROM is to present a collection of irrigation
guidelines for small- to medium-scale irrigation schemes (up to 1 000 ha).
The aim is not solely to present existing irrigation guidelines on a
CD-ROM but to use the interactive potential of this medium to assist the
user in extracting information and data from the guidelines for specific
purposes. A menu-driven media tool for easy orientation on the subject and
for a wide range of applications has been developed for a variety of
potential users. Background and contents The rationale for producing a
CD-ROM on irrigation guidelines is based on the fact that there are a
number of irrigation guidelines available worldwide from various national
and international institutions and organizations. Such guidelines cover
different irrigation topics in varying degrees of quantity and quality.
The individual user may have difficulty in both identifying which
guidelines to consult for specific tasks and in accessing them.
