The sustainability of the Hetao Irrigation System, located in the water scarce upper Yellow
River basin, is a priority considering the need for water saving, increased water productivity, and
higher farmers’ incomes. The upgrading of basin irrigation, the main irrigation method, is essential
and includes the adoption of precise land levelling, cut-off management, improved water distribution
uniformity, and adequate irrigation scheduling. With this objective, the current study focuses on
upgrading wheat basin irrigation through improved design using a decision support system (DSS)
model, which considers land parcels characteristics, crop irrigation scheduling, soil infiltration,
hydraulic simulation, and environmental and economic impacts. Its use includes outlining water
saving scenarios and...
