This book provides comprehensive insights into the field of irrigation management. It talks extensively about the importance of water management, especially in an activity like irrigation. As fresh water is a limited resource, conservation of water should be a priority. Water management refers to managing, distribution, planning and development of technology in order to optimally utilize the water resources. As irrigation is an activity involving manual exploitation of water, therefore, the conservation of water becomes very important. This book provides

Agricultural water management is a vital practice in ensuring reduction, and environmental protection. After decades of successfully expanding irrigation and improving productivity, farmers and managers face an emerging crisis in the form of poorly performing irrigation schemes, slow modernization, declining investment, constrained water availability, and environmental degradation.More and better investments in agricultural water are needed. In response, the World Bank, in conjunction with many partner agencies, has compiled a selection of good experiences that can guide practitioners in the

The question of whether the earth's climate is changing in some significant human-induced way remains a matter of much debate. But the fact that climate is variable over time is well known. These two elements of climatic uncertainty affect water resources planning and management in the American West. Managing Water Resources in the West Under Conditions of Climate Uncertainty examines the scientific basis for predictions of climate change, the implications of climate uncertainty for water resources management, and the management
