Abstract

Proper irrigation system selection is an important step in optimum utilization of soil and water resources. Different impressive factors in proper pressurized irrigation system selection have made it as a complicated issue. In this research, providing water, Soil and climatic parameters of 20 field Samples and studying Socio-Economic factors, using Analytical Hierarchy Process, the proper pressurized irrigation system for Dehgolan plain region has been selected. Main impressive factors have been divided in two groups of field physics and socio-economic. Consequently solid-set sprinkler system was introduced as a proper system for fields used in the study. Results show the analytical hierarchy process has acceptable usage in irrigation system selection topics.
