Water is a vital element for the growth of agriculture and plant life. Its proper management is essential for a bumper crop. Drought and floods are the ugly result of the mismanagement of water resources. The traditional methods of watering the crops in our country are wasteful and outdated. There is ample loss of water by evaporation and percolation. Both excessive or inadequate watering hampers the growth of plants and, therefore, the harvest. The present study focuses the attention on the problems of irrigation technology and mechanism. It examines both the age old, traditional and the modern, mechanized systems and arrives at definite conclusions about their pros and cons. The study suggests various means for the prevention of water losses as well as devices for its better utilisation. Rajasthan is the focal point of study, which includes the specific problems, solutions and the future perspective. The economists, planners, agricultural scientists, enlightened farmers and all those interested in development programmes will find the book highly informative, educative and useful. printed Pages: 114.
