    Special Issue on Irrigation and Water Conservancy


    Agricultural water supply is emerging as a critical natural resource issue. Irrigated agriculture is essential in meeting our food and fiber production needs. As the Nation’s largest water user, agriculture accounts for about 80 percent of the country’s annual water consumption. Irrigation water management encourages the application of water in an amount that meets the need of the growing plant in a manner that avoids extended soil saturation and runoff.  The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in this area of irrigation and water conservancy.


    In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore irrigation and water conservancy. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Agricultural water management
    • Irrigation water management
    • Maximizing irrigation efficiency and water conservation
    • Irrigation systems
    • Measurement of irrigation water use
    • Minimizing evaporative losses
