Agriculture uses approximately 70% of the world’s freshwater supply, and water managers are under mounting pressure to produce more food and fibre for a growing population while also reducing water waste and pollution and responding to a changing climate.

In light of these challenges, more farmers are adopting innovative water management strategies, such as. Over our nearly 20 year history, we have assisted dozens of irrigation water suppliers and farmers, across a wide range of agro-climatic, hydrologic, production and water management conditions.

Agriculture is the science and art of cultivating plants and livestock. Agriculture was the key development in the rise of sedentary human civilization, whereby farming of domesticated species created food surpluses that enabled people to live in cities.

The history of agriculture began thousands of years ago. After gathering wild grains beginning at leastyears ago, (—) European Union: Seth Siegel, author of the best-selling book Let There Be Water, noted that Netafim, an Israeli company which manufactures drop irrigation technology, says.

Asia Pacific is a decisive component in the global food chain. Asia’s large and growing population and rising incomes will continue to drive demand for food, agricultural commodities and resources. But Asia cannot produce enough to support itself.

In this volume are chapters on agriculture in the Middle East, South Asia, Europe, Oceania, Mesoamerica, and South America. A wide range of theoretical perspectives and approaches are used to provide a framework for agricultural land-use and water management in a variety of cultural and historical contexts.
