Groundwater is an important resource for livelihoods and the food security of billions of people, and especially in booming Asia’s agricultural economies.

Groundwater levels are retreating in areas where more water is being pumped out for irrigation than can be replenished by the rains,25 Globally, 40% of crop production comes from the 16% of irrigated agricultural fields,27 However, long-term irrigation and drainage practices have accelerated the rate of weathering of soil minerals, turned Cited by: Prospects for Agricultural Water Management All sources used to compile the country profile are also reported in the last section of the document.

The factsheets above outline the main data by theme and map the main features of water and agriculture in the country. 89% of groundwater extracted is used in the irrigation sector, 9% is for domestic use and 2% is for industrial use. 50% of urban water requirements and 85% of rural domestic water requirements are fulfilled by groundwater.

India uses almost twice the amount of water to grow crops as compared to China and the United States. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook. If you need to print pages from this book, we recommend downloading it as a PDF.

Prospects for Future Control. Surface irrigation is practiced on only about 39% of the irrigated crop land in the USA but on far more, 85%, worldwide.

Wherever surface irrigation is practiced, improved irrigation scheduling and better water control can reduce erosion and soil loss while minimizing off-site environmental damage. The pH and alkalinity are valuable characteristics that can greatly manipulate the suitability of water for irrigation purposes.

The normal pH ranges for irrigation water is to (Bauder et al., ). The alkalinity is imparted due to CO 3 and HCO 3 ions in the ground water.
