Adrian Laycock is at Adrian Laycock Ltd, U. There are many text book and hand books on water and irrigation. But this book has provide combination of theoretical aspects along with practical effect/ impact of the issues.

Paperback: 300 pages. Basically, I am a field executor in water sector for more than 40 years did and followed many aspects from my experience of the developing country. I find quite similar strategy being described in this book those I have adapted and followed in a multi- sectoral irrigation project in developing country on the basis of experience as irrigation water management professional and also as son of a farmer.

Irrigation systems design, planning and construction

Irrigation systems design, planning and construction. Adrian Laycock is a Civil Engineer with a Masters degree in Agricultural Engineering. He first studied hydraulics at Aberdeen University under Professor 'hydraulic Jack' Allen. This book aims to present straightforward concepts of water control in a format readily understood by non-engineers and those engineers not routinely engaged in irrigation design.

Considering the importance of irrigation schemes, it is unfortunate that until recently the technology and principles of design applied to their construction has hardly changed in 4,000 years. Modern thinking on irrigation engineering has benefited from a cross-fertilization of ideas from many other fields including social sciences, control theory, political economics and agriculture. However, these influences have been largely ignored by irrigation engineers.

Of all the confrontations man has engineered with nature, irrigation systems have had the most widespread and far-reaching impact on the natural environment. Over a quarter of a billion hectares of the planet are irrigated and entire countries depend on irrigation for their survival and existence. Considering the importance of irrigation schemes, it is unfortunate that until recently the technology and principles of design applied to their construction has hardly changed in 4,000 years. Modern thinking on irrigation engineering has benefited from a cross-fertilization of ideas from many other fields including social sciences, control theory, political economics and agriculture. However, these influences have been largely ignored by irrigation engineers. Drawing on almost 40 years of experience of irrigation in the developing world, Laycock introduces new ideas on the design of irrigation systems and combines important issues from the disciplines of social conflict, management, and political thinking.

There are many text book and hand books on water and irrigation. But this book has provide combination of theoretical aspects along with practical effect/ impact of the issues.

It is an excellent reference book, that generates lot of issues as food for thoughts.

This a popular type book and lacks fundamental modern irrigation theory and design aspects, eg., subsurface irrigation.
