Abstract [en]

Iraq is part of West Asia and North Africa (WANA) region. The area is known as dry land, famous with gap of crop yield as a result of the water shortage problem.Six basins with total catchment area of 614.19 km2 at rain-fed of Northern Sinjar District-Iraq had been chosen to investigate both of the potential of rainwater harvesting (RWH) and three supplemental irrigation (SI) scenarios S1, S2, and S3 (100%, 75%, and 50% of full irrigation requirement) to support the wheat yield (bread and durum) under various rainfall conditions for the study period 1990-2009.The results indicated that, the total volume of harvested runoff can be considered for irriga- tion practices, that reached up to 42.4 , 25.1, 0.6, 10.9 (*106 m3) during 1995-1996, 1996-1997, 1998-1999, and 2001-2002, respectively.The total irrigated area ranged between 10.9-5163.7 and 8.8-3595.7 (ha) for bread and durum wheat crop for the four selected seasons respectively. The yield scenarios for supplemental irrigation condition Y1, Y2, and Y3 give 68–9712, 94–12999, and 105–22806 Ton for bread wheat, and for durum wheat give 56–8035, 87–10906, and 103–17396 Ton.
