ABSTRACT

 

Agricultural land is fragmented in Turkey and in other Central European countries. Fragmented land prevents irrigation system efficiency to reach the desired level. In arid and semi-arid zones land consolidation offers opportunities for increased irrigation system efficiency.

 

The objective of our study was to determine factors for adoption of irrigation system as related to land consolidation. The Logit regression model was used to analyse survey data. Villages on the Bursa-Karacabey Plain of Turkey, where land consolidation and irrigation system were planned, were used as study sites. Results show that supplying sufficient water in canals, ease of  irrigation planning, reducing in water losses, ease of maintaining the irrigation and drainage system, and labour requirement significantly affected the adoption of irrigation systems.  

 

Keywords: Land consolidation, irrigation system, Logit regression model, adoption.
