Irrigation is a primary—and desirable—way to use waste water from agriculture, industry, and municipalities. Water is limited in many parts of the United States. One solution to shortages is use of agricultural, industrial, and municipal waste waters for agriculture, municipal parks and recreational areas, and other green spaces.

Agriculture in humid regions such as the Eastern United States has historically benefited from sufficient rainfall, making irrigation unnecessary for many producers. For instance, the USDA Farm and Ranch Irrigation Survey found that only 15% of cropland in Virginia was irrigated (United States Department of Agriculture (USDA, ).

The irrigation depth in the eastern United States is much less than in the west. In the eastern region, – mm of irrigation water was applied annually; in contrast, no less than mm was needed in – in the western region. This difference is primarily because of the more humid climate in.

Supplemental irrigation (SI) or Deficit irrigation (DI) has been extensively investigated as a valuable and sustainable production strategy for a wide range of crops in dry regions. By limiting water applications to drought-sensitive growth stages, this practice aims to maximize water productivity and to stabilize – rather than maximize.

The southeastern United States typically receives more than cm of precipitation per year. In this region, as in others around the world, irrigation is used as a supplement to rainfall. Over the past thirty years the number of hectares under irrigation.

Irrigation was of great economic importance for many early states as it played a key role in the intensification of agricultural and the production of surplus. Agricultural surplus was the main source of wealth in early state societies and political power was mainly based on the control of these surpluses by a small centralized group.

Irrigation, originally the domain of arid regions west of the th meridian, is steadily being adopted in the humid eastern states. Farmers — and their bankers — in the Mississippi delta, Corn Belt, southern Georgia, and elsewhere view the capacity to supplement increasingly erratic rainfall with water pumped from underground or from.

Agriculture is a major user of ground and surface water in the United States, accounting for approximately 80 percent of the Nation's consumptive water use and over 90 percent in many Western States.

Efficient irrigation systems and water management practices can help maintain farm profitability in an era of increasingly limited and more costly water supplies.

Under the predicted drought scenario, irrigation depth can be maintained at or below the baseline level in the western United States only when better irrigation infrastructure replaced 40% of the.

Supplemental irrigation in corn production is increasing for humid regions across the world. Little is known about the profitability of irrigating corn in the humid southeastern region of the United States.

Our objective was to determine the breakeven price of corn where investment in center-pivot irrigation would be profitable in Tennessee. The transformation of the American West from barren desert and low value grazing into one of the largest agriculture areas in the United States would be impossible without irrigation.

Water supply infrastructure currently delivers waters for about 40 million acres of irrigated land (74% nationwide) across arid regions in the Western. Rick Dunst, Viticulturist, Double A Vineyards, Inc.

When trouble-shooting the cause of poor growth in vineyards (especially newly-planted ones) competition from weeds is one of the first things to consider.

In my experience, new growers often underestimate the competitive effects of weeds in the vineyard. This article will summarize some of the concepts.
