  Using Satellite Imagery to Map Irrigated Lands
Additionally, a comparison was made between the amount and location of irrigated land determined in the early 1980's (Thelin and Heimes, 1987) with estimates made from the 1992 data to determine changes in the amount and location of irrigated land.
The minimum and maximum DN values of the irrigated pixels and those of the nonirrigated pixels were used in a conditional statement model to threshold all the irrigated agriculture into one class and all other nonirrigated agriculture into a separate class.
The total amount of irrigated land calculated from the 1980 RASA data was 13.7 million acres compared to the 13 million acres calculated from the 1992 imagery, a decrease of approximately 5 percent.

 Department of Revenue - State of Montana
All agricultural land, including grazing land, in a specified irrigation district where the land is designated as irrigable, with shares of water appurtenant to such land, shall be classified as irrigated, regardless of whether the water is actually applied or not applied to the land.
Land that is irrigated only during high water may be classified according to use, but it should carry a higher grade to reflect the occasional extra water and increased production.
Lands on which the native vegetation, non-irrigated alfalfa or other domestic varieties are cut for hay yearly or a majority of the time over a period of years.

Massachusetts had a 21.82% decrease in the number of farms that use irrigation from '97 to '02, however, the use of irrigation has increased a total of 79.75% from '74 to '02, which shows that irrigation is becoming a more important activity on farms.
The total number of acres that was irrigated dropped between '97 and '02 by 11.56%.
Irrigation on harvested cropland and pasture and other land took a drop from '97 to '02 by 11.17% and 40.56% respectively.

 25 Years : Part III
By 1989, there were some 233 million hectares of irrigated land in the world; 73 percent is in developing countries, representing 21 percent of all the cropped land in these countries.
The benefits of irrigation extend beyond the rural poor to the urban poor, by reducing the pressure on urban employment and infrastructure and by increasing the real wages of urban laborers who spend the greatest proportion of their incomes on food.
Successful irrigation of the future will: (a) permit much higher levels of agricultural productivity, (b) be responsive to more diversified and dynamic crop markets, (c) stimulate more profitable irrigated agriculture for many rural poor,(d) substantially improve water use efficiency, and (e) support the sustainable use of scarce land, biomass and water resources.

 Root Development of Field Crops: Chapter XII
In dry land, they were 1 to 7 inches in length, the longest ones being profusely rebranched, though in the irrigated soil, they were not only shorter but much more poorly furnished with laterals.
The root plan of the irrigated plants, with their widely spreading, horizontal surface root system and rather vertically descending and deeply penetrating major branches, was fairly well blocked out at the preceding examination on July 7.
On the larger roots of the irrigated plants, these lateral root-producing zones were longer, as were also some of the smaller roots, but the larger ones, originating from the base, did not extend beyond 2 feet and were less profusely branched.

When the lease is for irrigated land, machinery investment includes the irrigation equipment and the crop machinery used to produce the crop.
If the land is valued as dry land (or land with irrigation potential), the value of the irrigation facilities and equipment must be determined and assigned to the contributing parties.

 USGS Colorado Water Resources Publication - Classification of Irrigated Land Using Satellite Imagery, the High Plains ...
To update the data on irrigated land, 40 summer and 40 spring images (nominal date 1992) were acquired from the National Land Cover Data set and processed using a band-ratio method (Landsat Thematic Mapper band 4 divided by band 3) to enhance the vegetation signatures.
The total amount of irrigated land classified from the 1992 imagery was 13.1 million acres, or about 12 percent of the total land in the High Plains.
Although the change in the amount of irrigated land between the two times was not substantial, the location of the irrigated land did shift from areas where there were large ground-water-level declines to other areas where ground-water levels were static or rising.
