The purpose of this appendix is to appraise the present irrigation development, outline the irrigation potential, and present recommendations for the orderly and efficient development of irrigation within the basin. These findings are used in formulation studies to develop the overall comprehensive plan for water and related land resources in the basin. This appendix is essentially single-purpose in scope. Projections of irrigation development are given for the years 1980, 2000, and 2020. Single-purpose means to achieve irrigation objectives are also given. These analyses are made on the assumption that there will be ample water for full irrigation development. The data presented are generally of a reconnaissance level to give a broad-scaled analysis of future requirements for development of irrigation in the basin. More detailed data are presented in those instances where the need identified is of more immediate nature and will warrant specific action within the readily foreseeable future. Author
