Proper management of irrigation is key to sound water management. Various tools can help to assess current situations and design future scenarios in water use in irrigation, and also facilitate an informed dialogue for preventing conflicts over water. The SALTMOD software was developed by the International Institute for Land Reclamation and Improvement (ILRI). It simulates water-management options to affect saline levels in soil moisture, groundwater and drainage water, and calculates how climate, soil, topography and crop-rotation schedules affect various irrigation solutions. Download it free from www.ilri.nl but you must buy the printed user manual. English only.

Their Cropwat programme calculates evapotranspiration, crop water and irrigation requirements and the associated Climwat climatic database includes data from 144 countries.
