Irrigation efficiency training material
Expanded Title:South African water resources will be coming under severe pressure in the next 5 to 15 years. The main drivers of envisaged water shortages are population growth and global warming, which in combination are leading to both greater demand and reduced supply of water. The potential results of water shortages effecting society as a whole include reduced water quality, food shortages, health risks and social unrest. Making better use of available water is now becoming imperative and not negotiable. As users within the biggest water sector (in terms of annual volumetric use) in South Africa, irrigation water managers are often called upon to “improve efficiency”; however, when the question is asked what this request practically implies, answers are not obviously forthcoming.
