Although the results of the study indicate that existing programs for irrigation scheduling in the Grand Valley to control salinity are having only a marginal effect, the potential for 'scientific' irrigation scheduling has been well established. Also, irrigation scheduling should not be taken individually as a salinity control measure because its effectiveness is not exclusive of the operation of the total irrigation system. Thus, irrigation scheduling is a necessary, but not sufficient, tool for achieving improved irrigation efficiencies.
