Someone should please as a matter of urgency help me with difference between "Water Demand (not including loss, reuse, and DSM) and "irrigation" under result view. After altering irrigation efficiency I found that "water demand" of the catchment remain unchanged but result for "Irrigation" (under catchment) changes. Can someone please help with difference between this two.

Hi Nura,

Your demand and irrigation should be the same, it is the water demanded for irrigation (water demand) and water applied for irrigation.

However, I'm curious what you mean by "improving the irrigation efficiency" - how did you do that in your catchment? Maybe that will help me understand what happened.

Also, does your catchment have multiple land use types?
