These estimates of irrigation requirements are based on the assumption that the crop you selected can be grown and irrigated at the site you have selected. Constraints such as topography and crop-specific climate requirements are not taken into account.

Irrigation requirements may be less than reported here if your soils are poorly drained or the water table is close to the soil surface.
