Irrigation systems should apply the amount of water needed by the crop in a timely manner without waste or damage to soil, water, air, plant, and animal resources. This includes, but is not limited to, offsite water and air quality and desired impacts on plant and animal (including fish and wildlife) diversity. Other beneficial uses of irrigation water are frost protection, crop quality, crop cooling, chemigation, desirable saline and sodic balance maintenance, and leaching of undesirable soil chemicals.
