Details

Although over two thirds of the Earth’s surface is covered by water, more than 97% is ocean water which is too salty for human use or even for irrigation. Consequently, the freshwater is only 3% and almost 1% of the available freshwater is liquid surface water that can be used directly by humans. The rest is groundwater and iced water. Yet still, freshwater is considered to be one of the most abundant resources on earth. In the agriculture sector only, more than two-thirds of the available freshwater is used for irrigation. This book focuses on the technology, management and efficiency of drip irrigation.
