Exploitation of irrigation water under arid ecosystem conditions becomes the pedagogical problem; therefore, rationalizing irrigation and maximizing water use efficiency based on appropriate developed technologies are the most important aspects in the water and agricultural policies. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to: 1) develop out a criterion to identify irrigation system effectiveness by using a dimensionless analysis; and 2) validate the suggested criterion. Dimensional analysis outputs revealed that the irrigation efficiency, may be better if it replaced by new developed terminology noted as irrigation effectiveness for calculating the seasonal crop water requirements (SCWR) that represent a ratio of irrigation system performance and irrigated soil characteristics. The developed criterion may be expressed as follows: Moreover, results analysis of the validation process of the application of the developed criterion indicated that SCWR had been improved by applying the developed criterion with about 10.55 – 21.56% comparing with the conventional method that had been recommended by FAO.
