Sustainability concerns in the operation and maintenance of irrigation systems



Sustainability concerns in the operation and maintenance of irrigation systems



Sustainability of irrigated agriculture Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop, Vimeiro, Portugal, 21-26 March, 1994: 431-439



Irrigated agriculture must continue to grow at the rate of at least 0.8% per year to meet the demands of the growing population. The possibilities of expanding the irrigated area are finite and much of the increase required in irrigation will have to come from the increase in productivity from existing lands. When properly managed, irrigation is a highly sustainable undertaking.
