Optimization Model for Irrigation Planning in Heterogenous Area

Anongrit Kangrang, Anujit Phumphan and Chavalit Chaleeraktrakoon

This study proposes an allocation LP model that can take into account heterogeneity of land area. The divided scenario into several sub-areas based on suitable soil type for each crops was used to represent the heterogeneous character in term of water requirement and crop yield. The proposed model was applied to find the dry-season (January-May) crop pattern of the Nong Wei Irrigation Project which located in the Northeast Region of Thailand. The records of seasonal flow, requested areas, crop water requirements, evaporation and effective rainfalls of the project were used for this illustrative application. Results showed that the proposed LP model gave the optimum crop pattern with net seasonal profit which corresponding seasonal available water and required area. It provided the highest profit as compare to the existing LP model that considering homogeneous project. The obtained patterns of considering heterogeneity corresponded to the available land areas of the suitable soil type.
