        This book comprises 12 chapters that cover different issues and problematics of irrigated agriculture: from water use in different irrigated systems to pollution generated by irrigated agriculture. water use.

How-ever, many types of salts exist and are commonly found in Texas waters (Table 1). Most salinity problems in agricul - ture result directly from the salts carried in the irrigation water. The process at work. b) Field scale: Typically use water budgeting (quantitative) approach along with tensiometers or other moisture monitoring devices to determine need for irrigation (see more at Lecture 2, as well as Supplement 2, Overview of “Water Budget” Approach for Efficient Irrigation Management, and Supplement 3, Soil Moisture Sensing Instruments.

As the irrigation engineering field itself has evolved over time, especially within the last five to six decades, basic terminologies used in irrigation and related fields have also undergone some significant changes.

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.
