Bankless Channel Irrigation Systems are being used by broadacre irrigators seeking to improve farm efficiencies. Evaluation of the irrigation performance of these systems has been difficult due to the operational nature of these systems. Using novel evaluation methods and tools an evaluation of the irrigation performance of a bankless system was achieved. These evaluations revealed the application efficiency at both the system and bay scale and will assist in the development of an irrigation evaluation technique and simulation model capable of simulating the performance of this system.
