Thematic Process T.2.1.1

Making Every Drop Count: Best Available Technology in Irrigated Agriculture

· Coordinator :
University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Daugherty Water for Food Institute(NU/DWFI)

Appropriate technology can make every drop of water count. Best Available Technology (BAT) has helped create the regional phenomenon of 17% of cultivated land producing nearly 50% of total crop revenue through irrigation. BAT serves the rain fed environment, small scale as well as production agriculture, and well-resourced and less well economically supported regions. The BAT session will demonstrate steps to move water use technological solutions to the action stage in the face of increasing significant drought, changing rainfall patterns, expansion of groundwater utilization, and climate-induced heightened evapotranspiration affecting plant health and productivity. Current technology applied in appropriate ways has the capacity to sustain water resources, enhance water efficiency and complement the creation/repair of critical infrastructure in irrigation and other-use water distribution systems. Participants from government, NGOs, business R&D, and university sectors will examine the utilization of improved technology across a wide range of environments and economic/cultural settings ? integrating aspects of the most advanced sensing tools and enhanced classic approaches to delivering water for nutritious and sustainable agriculture in South, Southeast and North Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, MENA, and the Western Hemisphere.
