Management Of Water Resources In Agriculture


Increased urbanization is the outcome of rapid industrialization, which occurred along with an increase in population. As a result of these factors, the water supply that was formerly reserved for agricultural purposes is now being distributed across a variety of industries. Because of this, there has been a slow but steady decrease in the amount of available land and water per person. At the same time, the need to boost food production in order to accommodate an ever-increasing population is becoming more and more apparent. The inefficient management of the available water has brought an additional layer of complexity to this issue, which has led to the formation of problematic soils and, as a consequence, a decrease in productivity for each unit of water amount used. As a result, it has become an imperative need to utilize the limited water resources in such a way as to receive the most returns per unit amount of water. This was not the case in the past. Topics covered in this book include drip irrigation systems, micro-sprinklers, energy evaluation for drip irrigation, and landscape irrigation. It covers a wide range of subjects related to water, including water shortages, river health management difficulties, water supply systems, lake management, water supply demand assessment, salt water intrusion, and integrated water resources management. Anyone studying or working in hydrology, watershed management, environmental resources, agricultural engineering, earth sciences, or natural resource planning and management will find this book useful.
