Adjusting to diminishing water supplies in irrigated agriculture

The dissertation analyzes econometrically adjustments in irrigated agriculture in response to increases in the cost of obtaining groundwater. In recent years there has been growing concern regarding the future availability of water resources for agriculture in the western USA.

Irrigators can manage reduced water supplies by increasing the efficiency of water use through other inputs such as labour rather than removing land from production. The effect of reduced water supply on labour demand depends on the type of irriga...

With the rapid expansion of irrigated farming in the Great Plains, irrigation from ground water reserves has caused water tables to fall in many areas in the last few decades. As the saturated thickness of an aquifer declines, net returns to irrig...

Sanghi, A.A.; Klepper, R., 1977: A method for the economic analysis of irrigated farming with diminishing ground water reserves. A method is described which has been developed to evaluate the economics of ground water irrigation on individual farms. The main emphasis is on the effect of a declining water table on crop yield and its consequent effect on net return.
