Abstract

The Tulun Irrigation Network is an area of 200 hectares of irrigated agricultural area, the source of water in the Tulun irrigation network comes from the Fefanaek Dam. The Tulun irrigation channel consists of primary and secondary canals with a total length of 1430.47 m. In this study, an analysis of irrigation water needs was analyzed, analysis of irrigation water availability, analysis of water balance, and optimization of the Tulun Irrigation Area. The results of the water balance indicate that the availability of water is not sufficient to meet water needs based on existing cropping patterns. Results of analysis Establishment of cropping patterns according to water requirements to irrigate rice fields in order to increase agricultural output in the Tulun irrigation area of Taebenu District is rice - palawija (second crops in dry season) - palawija which started from the preparation of land in November 1 starting in January 2
