Can irrigated agriculture in California meet ground water quality standards through improved irrigation?



Can irrigated agriculture in California meet ground water quality standards through improved irrigation?



International Water and Irrigation 23(1): 26-28, 30



This paper discusses the causes of nonpoint source pollution (NPS) of groundwater from irrigated agriculture in California, USA, as well as the reduction of groundwater NPS through improved irrigation. Drainage below the root zone can be reduced by improving the uniformity and the management of irrigation systems, both of which will improve irrigation efficiency.
