Irrigation has been used for millions of years to maximise the functionality, potency and profitability of plants and it's a technological know-how that's continuously evolving. This power for more advantageous crop yields hasn't ever been extra very important as inhabitants degrees and insist for foodstuff keep growing. Recognising the necessity for a coherent and obtainable assessment of overseas irrigation examine, this e-book examines the criteria influencing water productiveness in person vegetation. It specializes in 9 key plantation/industrial plants on which hundreds of thousands of individuals within the tropics and subtropics rely for his or her livelihoods (banana, cocoa, coconut, espresso, oil palm, rubber, sisal, sugar cane and tea). Linking crop body structure, agronomy and irrigation practices, it is a necessary source for planners, irrigation engineers, agronomists and manufacturers all in favour of the overseas have to increase water productiveness in agriculture within the face of elevated strain on water resources.
