Managing irrigation begins with understanding the soil as a reservoir for storing plant available water. Plant use is a withdrawal and deposits are made through capture and infiltration of precipitation, and irrigation. Soil profile characteristics and plant rooting depth determine the volume of the soil in which the soil water should be managed. The environmental consequences of mismanaging irrigation and the effects of drought on the soil water bank will be addressed.
