Published by: American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, Soil Science Society of America

 

Irrigation is one of the most important human activities sustaining civilization. On average, irrigated crop yields are double those from unirrigated land. It has been estimated that to meet the needs of the 8 billion population by 2025, the irrigated area must expand more than 20% and irrigated crop yields must improve by 40% above current yields. The issues and the newest technologies are compiled in comprehensive chapters to facilitate efficient, sustainable, economical, and environmentally responsible irrigation. Contributors are scientists at the forefront of this important multifaceted area. Their diverse backgrounds in irrigation cover the broad spectrum of the science of irrigating crop plants. Subjects discussed include the latest information on monitoring technology, efficiency, and specific information tailored to individual crops.
