    The MASSCOTE application presented in this document has been initialized through a training workshop in Karnataka, for engineers and managers from the KJBNL, focussing on Upper Krishna Project from 31st January to 10th February 2009. The Upper Krishna Irrigation Systems is a set of systems using water from the Naryanpur reservoir located in the downstream part of the Upper Krishna. A total of 8 systems are fed by the reservoir, totalling a net command area of 513 000 ha for a GCA of 601 000 hec tares. The irrigation systems are new and are operational from the year 2003. The MASSCOTE approach used in this workshop and afterwards is a methodology developed by FAO, for auditing performance and planning improvements of large open channel irrigation systems. The basic MASSCOTE methodology has been applied to 8 systems; some specific modules have been additionally applied to deal with lift irrigation systems and multiple uses of water.
