Summary: The project is conceived as the theoretical and professional basis for irrigation development, primarily in Croatia, but also elsewhere. The main goal is to collect and for our purposes adapt the newest worldwide achiewements in the field of planning and designing of irrigation systems as well as their specific structures and to make this knowledge easy accessible to our planners and designers. It is foreseen that the material will be printed in six books of manuals and each of them will contain a complete theme, namely: 1. General; 2. Crop water requirements; 3. Irrigation methods; 4. Systems, structures and equipment for irrigation; 5. Planning, designing and management of irrigation systems; 6. Water quality for irrigation (additional volumes-possibly); 7. Optimization of irrigation systems; 8. The irrigation mechanization It is foreseen to edit one book yearly, so that the project will take minimum six and maximum eight years. During that period the members of the team will edit a greater number of scientific and professional papers in the local and international journals, as well as at scientific meetings.

Keywords: Irrigation, planning, cropping pattern, water requirement, irrigation system, pedological surveyings, water quality, modelling, simulation, mechanization, management.

Research goals: The basic goal of this research project is to prepare suitable conditions for adequate planning, designing and construction of irrigation systems. This is, actually, the first stage of implementation, followed by the second one, which consists in preparing studies and main designes, and eventually the implementation, i.e. the construction of the system. The target of the first stage is to prepare the theoretical and practical bases for the follwing ones. In such a way a qualified and uniform aid to a great number of engineers-designers who will be planning the systems will be assured. The higest savings which could be achieved during the implementation of irrigation systems depend on an adequate preparation of this stage. The single results of the investigations, which will be edited in the scientific and other journals, could be legalised afterwards in form of standards or instructions for obligatory use as is done as a normal procedure in many other countries.
