Abstract This paper describes a procedure for monitoring and improving the performance of on-demand irrigation networks, based on the integration of remote sensing techniques and simulation modelling of water flow in each component of the system. In order to adequately reproduce the actual operation of an on-demand irrigation system, the physical characteristics of the irrigation systems (crop, soil and distribution network) are linked to the farmers' irrigation criteria and preferences. The development of this procedure, which is currently being implemented in a district in South Italy, is of great support to improving the management and monitoring of irrigation systems.
