Demand for irrigation water

R and D Report National Rivers Authority ( 14): 53 pp.
Demand for irrigation water
This report predicts future growth in the demand for water for agricultural irrigation in England and Wales, and advises as to how the National Rivers Authority (NRA) should respond. The predictions exclude the possible effects of climate change. It is predicted that there will be a relatively minor increase in the area farmers wish to irrigate but a larger increase in the volume of water required.
