This will limit agricultural productivity in the region if the area must revert back to reliance on only rain-fed agriculture. Advances in data science, sensing, modeling, water-use efficiency, and systems-level management practices can be applied to achieve sustainable water use.

Water-use efficiency is an important subject in agriculture in semiarid regions, because of the increasing areas under irrigation and the high water requirements of crops. The scarcity of water resources is leading to increasing controversy about the use of water resources by agriculture and industry, for direct human consumption, and for other.

Feb 20,  · Agriculture is a major user of ground and surface water in the United States, accounting for approximately 80 percent of the Nation's consumptive water use and over 90 percent in many Western States. Efficient irrigation systems and water management practices can help maintain farm profitability in an era of increasingly limited and more costly water supplies.

Irrigated agriculture will have to face the challenge of ensuring the food demands of an increasing population over the coming years, making sustainable use of water and energy resources essential.
