Additional Physical Format: Online version: Misra, Kanak Manjari, Irrigation and economic development. New Delhi: Ashish Pub. House, (OCoLC) Irrigation and Agricultural Development compiles selected papers presented at the International Expert Consultation held in Baghdad, Iraq from February 24 to March 1, This book addresses the technical, economic, and institutional problems connected with the development and utilization of irrigation water for agricultural production. This book is organized into eight sections encompassing 46 chapters. The opening section deals first with the benefits of arid land irrigation and the effective use of water in irrigated agriculture. This section also tackles the public health and socio-economic impacts of irrigation, as well as the planning and managing of irrigation and drainage Edition: 1.

This chapter provides an economic perspective on the contribution of irrigation and water resources to past agricultural development and future water resource management. The efficiency of water use is affected by decisions made at many levels. The inefficiencies that can occur at different levels of water management are discussed in this chapter.

Economic development and other 20th century technologies also made irrigation viable in many areas with no history of irrigation. We discuss modern irrigation techniques in Section 3, where we introduce our measure of irrigation Size: 7MB. Download Irrigation Engineering By – Irrigation involves the artificial application of water to soil, usually for assisting the growth of crops in dry areas or where there is a shortage of the process of agriculture becomes increasingly mechanised, the application of scientific methods and technology to the procedure of irrigation comes as no surprise.
Economics is the fundamental decision criterion in irrigation and drainage engineering. This chapter helps answer the following questions. Does the improvement in crop income and/or reduction in labor, energy, and water costs justify the capital expense of a new irrigation system? HISTORY OF IRRIGATION DEVELOPMENT: Historically, civilizations have been dependent on development of irrigated agriculture to provide agrarian basis of a society & to augment the security of people (After Shirsath B. Paresh). Here history of irrigation development has been Size: KB. If the theory is correct and if irrigation is correlated with economic development, the observed effect of irrigation on institutional quality could work through modernization. For instance, a high irrigation potential could slow democratization if irrigated societies specialized in agricultural production and failed to develop modern industries. 27Cited by: Irrigation Guide Acknowledgments Part , Irrigation Guide, is an addition to the National Engineering Hand-book series.
