Abstract
Years of less than normal water supply have always meant disaster in varying degree to those engaged in agriculture, and in many instances to those dependent on their produce. Now, with the worldwide acceleration of population growth, irrigation project development is going forward at an unprecedented rate, utilizing water supplies which are less and less reliable while ever more costly. At the same time people are becoming increasingly dependent on these projects for their well-being-in the USA, for their continuing financial success, abroad, for the very food they require to maintain life. Put somewhat differently, water shortage in irrigated agriculture is becoming more commonplace, and simultaneously more serious in its consequences.
