Abstract Background: Irrigation scheme performance assessment is vital to evaluate the impacts of irrigation practices, to identify performance gaps and to improve system performances. However, irrigation performance assessment has not been carried out for Yelen irrigation scheme since its operation. Therefore, this study has been done with the purpose of identifying and understanding the current level of irrigation performance of Yelen irrigation scheme. The indicators of adequacy, efficiency, dependability, deficiency and equity were used to determine hydraulic performance. Primary data were collected through flow measurement using current meter and Parshall flume, transect walk, household surveys and group discussions, whereas Secondary data were collected from different sources. CROPWAT 8.0 model, SPSS, Microsoft excels and GIS software was used to analyze the data. Water delivery indicators were evaluated from the amounts of water which was actually applied and which should have been applied.Results: According to the results of the study, the value of adequacy, dependability, efficiency, deficiency and equity were found to be 0.84, 0.26, 0.93, 0.17and 0.34 respectively. Generally, the performance of the irrigation system is poor. It mainly resulted due to water scarcity, illegal water abstraction, sedimentation of canals and inadequate operation and maintenance provisions.Concussions: Therefore, adequate maintenance and suitable management approaches are required to improve the irrigation system performance. Under the water scarce situations, improving the performance of water delivery systems can offer an opportunity to realize field level water savings.
