The competitive demand of available water is more and more acute now in most parts of the world. The supplies of good water quality are declining every day. It is, therefore, necessary to find methods to improve water use efficiency in agriculture. The drip irrigation is one of the most efficient irrigation systems that are used in agriculture. HydroCalc Irrigation Planning is software for the irrigation community. It is a simple and easy calculation tool to perform some basic hydraulic computations. The use of HydroCalc allows the designer, dealer or end-user to evaluate the performance of micro irrigation in-field components, such as: Drip laterals and micro sprinklers, Sub mains and manifolds, Main lines (PVC, PE, etc.), Valves Energy calculation.
