17. Irrigation in arid zones: the Israeli case

17. Irrigation in arid zones: the Israeli case

Arid zone settlement planning The Israeli experience: 411-439

This chapter describes the climate, soil and water conditions of the Negev and the agricultural practice developed to overcome the difficulties they impose. It concentrates on the Arava Valley since it presents both the most extreme arid conditions and, at the same time, a significant agricultural success. Among other factors, drip irrigation is probably the major technological reason for this success and is therefore described in detail.
