The 2007 AWS irrigation volume estimate included water used for pre-planting and post harvest irrigation. While the 2010 AWS did not specifically collect this information, the 2007 and 2010 AWS estimates are considered to be comparable because pre-planting and post harvest irrigation make up a small portion of total irrigation water volume.
Area of irrigated land refers to the land area that received irrigation. Land area that had the capacity to be irrigated but did not receive irrigation is not included.
The 2010 estimates include all farms that usually irrigate, regardless of whether any irrigation was done.
These estimates apply only to farms that irrigated in 2010.
Off-farm water sources includes water transported to the farm either via pipeline, canal system or vehicle (this includes municipal (potable) water).
On-farm surface water includes water from lakes, rivers, creeks, streams, ponds or dugouts.
An irrigation district is a corporation that constructs, maintains and operates waterworks in its district for the conveyance and delivery of water.
