Monitoring water quality and moisture content throughout the root zone become essential for proper management and for reduction of undesirable and diverse effects caused by using different water quality. In the field level, poor management of using different quality water can cause a huge reduction on the vegetation production. Two field plots were selected in Al-Khalis region in Diyala governorate as a case study. Four scenarios were applied for the data collected for a complete season from a local meteorological station and by using HYDRUS-3D V2.05 software package to simulate water and salt transport through a 1m depth of unsaturated zone. Irrigation scheduling was estimated using FAO method. The net water depth required for a season was 65 mm for 7 days irrigation interval and 21 irrigation events. For depths (20, 40, 60, 80, and100 cm) the salt concentration were simulated for the four scenarios and for the whole season. For the limit of controlling soil salinity at low level in initial and develop stage of plantation, it has been found that the Fourth scenario has to be chosen.
