Low Energy Precision Application Irrigation for Cotton Production in the Texas Southern High Plains

Kenneth Hill, Eduardo Segarra, R. Terry Ervin, William M. Lyle


In this study the farm level economic feasibility of converting a center pivot low-pressure irrigation system to a low-energy precision application (LEPA) irrigation system for cotton production in the Southern High Plains of Texas is evaluated. The irrigation conversion is economically feasible. Therefore, the adoption of LEPA in the Southern High Plains of Texas is a viable alternative for cotton producers to assure continued profitability of agricultural operations and future firm survival.
