Preparing a clear and accurate design brief (specification) is essential to get an irrigation system to meet both production (quality and yield) and environmental (seasonal allocation, water use efficiency and nutrient loss) targets. 

Those managing irrigation systems require an understanding performance indicators, to allow informed purchasing decision based on meeting their design brief (specification).

The following guides help to ensure; the correct information is gathered to prepare a design brief (specification), irrigation system performance indicators are understood when comparing design quotes, designers develop a design brief (specification) based on supplied information, and designers prepare a quotation using standardised irrigation system performance indicators.
