This guideline explains the steps in preparing an irrigation and drainage management. An irrigation and drainage management plan (IDMP) identifies the works and practices that will improve irrigation and drainage management, water use efficiency and crop production for an irrigation farm in New South Wales, Australia. An IDMP consists of a written report, a base map or plan of the enterprise, and plans, overlays or maps showing different components of irrigated enterprise and how they relate to each other. The eight sections in the IDMP's written report include: (1) owner's goal; (2) property information, ownership details and location; (3) infrastructure, topography and natural features; (4) soil, water and climate; (5) irrigated cropping enterprises; (6) irrigation system; (7) irrigation drainage, recycling and effluent systems; and (8) plan for action. Each section with its corresponding plan, overlay or map, is used to evaluate the current situation, consider the issues that arise, and analyse what action is needed.
