Adoption and impacts of zero tillage as a resource conserving technology in the irrigated plains of South Asia AgEcon
Erenstein, Olaf; Farooq, Umar; Malik, R.K.; Sharif, Muhammad.
The recent stagnation of productivity growth in the irrigated areas of the Indo-Gangetic Plains of South Asia has led to a quest for resource-conserving technologies that can save water, reduce production costs and improve production. The present synthesis of two detailed country studies confirmed widespread adoption of zero tillage (ZT) wheat in the rice-wheat systems of India’s Haryana State (34.5% of surveyed households) and Pakistan’s Punjab province (19%). The combination of a significant “yield effect” and “cost-saving effect” makes adoption worthwhile and is the main driver behind the rapid spread and widespread acceptance of ZT in Haryana, India. In Punjab, Pakistan, adoption is driven by the significant ZT-induced cost savings for wheat...

ANALYSING THE LOW ADOPTION OF WATER CONSERVATION TECHNOLOGIES BY SMALLHOLDER FARMERS IN SOUTHERN AFRICA AgEcon
Perret, Sylvain R.; Stevens, Joe B..
Natural resource degradation and water scarcity are a global concern, which typically threatens the sustainability of smallholder farmers' livelihoods in semi-arid developing areas. As part of research efforts, a number of water-conservation technologies (WCT) have been developed, yet with low adoption rates in smallholder farming environments. This paper discusses the concepts of adoption and innovation, comparing the perspectives of research operators to the ones of smallholder farmers. Discrepancies are highlighted and ultimately explain low uptake of technologies by farmer. Then it addresses socio-economic factors affecting such adoption. It is argued that WCT show specific traits: (1) diversity and applicability to different time and spatial...

Aquifer Depletion and the Cost of Water Conservation: The Southern High Plains of Texas Case AgEcon
Wheeler, Erin A.; Segarra, Eduardo; Johnson, Phillip N.; Willis, David B.; Johnson, Jeffrey W..
Irrigated agriculture has played a vital role in the development and growth of the Great Plains Region of the United States. The primary source of water for irrigation in this region is the Ogallala Aquifer. The Southern portion of the Ogallala Aquifer is considered exhaustible due to the low level of recharge relative to the quantities of water pumped. Analysis and evaluation of water conservation policies which could extend the economic life of the Ogallala Aquifer in the Southern High Plains of Texas and Eastern New Mexico, and which could contribute to maintaining the viability of the regional economy is important. This study evaluates the impacts of water conservation policies which limit drawdown of the Ogallala Aquifer. County level dynamic...

Avaliação dos recursos hídricos da sub-bacia do Tuá, em Cruz das Almas, BA. Repositório Alice
UBIALI, B. G.; POELKING, E. L.; ROMANO, M. R..
O planejamento da conservação e produção de água em uma bacia hidrográfica deve ser precedido da caracterização de seu meio físico, com o intuito de levantar as áreas críticas do ponto de vista da manutenção desse recurso natural (Pinto et al., 2005). As estratégias de conservação da água implicam em visão ecossistêmica de manejo, não podendo ser realizadas separadamente da conservação dos outros recursos naturais (Lima e Zakia, 2001). A sub-bacia hidrográfica como unidade ecossistêmica oferece condições ideais para o desenvolvimento integrado de estudos ecológicos, o planejamento de atividades florestais e o mapeamento de indicadores hidrológicos visando ao manejo sustentável e à conservação dos recursos naturais (Tonello et al., 2009; Zakia, 1998). As...

Barragem subterrânea: Alternativa de captação e armazenamento de água de chuva. Infoteca-e
MELO, R. F. de; ANJOS, J. B. dos.
Nas condições da agricultura dependente de chuva, a disponibilidade de água no solo para as culturas varia de acordo com a quantidade e frequência das precipitações, da capacidade do solo em absorver água e da profundidade do sistema radicular. Essa disponibilidade pode ser melhorada com o uso de tecnologias de captação de água de chuva, como também aquelas associadas ao manejo adequado do solo e água, uso de práticas conservacionistas como, incorporação de restos vegetais, cobertura do solo, adubação orgânica, adubação verde, entre outras. Estudos realizados pela Embrapa Semiárido, em parceria com outras instituições, têm ressaltado a importância das tecnologias de captação e armazenamento de água de chuva para melhoria da agricultura familiar no...

Basin-level use and productivity of water: examples from South Asia AgEcon
Molden, David J.; Sakthivadivel, Ramasamy; Habib, Zaigham.
Discusses and illustrates concepts for identifying ways of improving productivity of water within basins. The results of applying a water accounting procedure to four sub-basins in South Asia (Bhakra in India; Chishtian in Pakistan; Huruluwewa in northern Sri Lanka; and Kirindi Oya in southern Sri Lanka) are presented. The methodology used identifies the quantities and productivity of various uses of water within a basin. This information is then used to identify the water-saving potential, and the means of improving the productivity of the managed supplies.

China’s water pricing reforms for irrigation: effectiveness and impact AgEcon
Liao, Yongsong; Gao, Zhanyi; Bao, Ziyun; Huang, Qingwen; Feng, Guangzhi; Xu, Di; Cai, Jiabin; Han, Huijing; Wu, Weifeng.
Irrigation occupies a central position in China’s crop production. However, due to low per capita water resources, much worse, unevenly distributed over regions and time and the rapid increase of water diversions to non-irrigation sectors, irrigation water shortages have become a very serious problem. Without the adoption of effective measures this problem may even threaten China’s food security. Currently, irrigation efficiency is very low in general, irrigation water prices cannot fully recover water supply costs, and irrigation facilities are aging due to the lack of funding for O&M (operation & maintenance). Since water prices are regulated by the government, and not determined by the market, water prices did not work effectively in water...

Determining the Price-Responsiveness of Demands for Irrigation Water Deliveries versus Consumptive Use AgEcon
Scheierling, Susanne M.; Young, Robert A.; Cardon, Grant E..
A water-crop simulation/mathematical programming model of irrigation water demand in northeastern Colorado is formulated to develop an original concept of derived demand for consumptive use of water. Conventional demand functions for water deliveries are also developed, and the effect of hypothetical price increases on both consumption and delivery are illustrated. Findings indicate that demand elasticity estimates are quite sensitive to model specification, and consumptive use demand tends to be significantly less price-responsive than delivery demand. Thus price incentives are likely to have only limited impacts on basin-wide water consumption and would not make much additional water available for emerging demands.

Gestão do uso e conservação de água em sistemas pecuários no Cerrado. Infoteca-e
SILVA, M. P. da; MAURO, R. A.; SANTOS, J. C. dos; PIRES, P. P..
A utilização da água nas propriedades rurais deve estar adequada com a "Lei das Águas". O aproveitamento do potencial hídrico das propriedades envolve diratamente às práticas conservacionistas como manutenção da cobertura vegetal nas margens das fontes de água e uso e manejo adequado do solo. Neste trabalho fazemos algumas sugestões para que o proprietário seja aliado na conservação ambiental, tornando-se um "produtor de água".

Good agricultural practices for more resilient agriculture: guidelines for producers and governments. Repositório Alice
DÍAZ, A.; GEBLER, L.; MAIA, L.; MEDINA, L.; TRELLES, S..
Good agricultural practices (GAPs) are an indispensable tool for risk management due to the close relationship between agriculture and climate, as well as the climate variability currently being experienced. The implementation of these tools, however, involves fostering innovation, increasing knowledge and giving stakeholders, small producers in particular, a holistic view, so that they may improve their production systems, increase their resilience, and ensure their sustainability.

Groundwater Conservation Policy in Agriculture AgEcon
Wilson, Paul N.; Needham, Robert A..
Transboundary water conflicts between urban and rural populations often center on water use in the agricultural sector. Public officials may select a water conservation policy as the primary tool for reducing agricultural water use with the goal to improve water availability to urban areas and future generations. The Groundwater Management Act of 1980 (GMA) in Arizona was designed, in part, to induce water conservation in irrigated agriculture to sustain economic growth in an arid climate. Our mixed-method evaluation design merges qualitative, interview-based information with an estimated water demand function using panel data. We find that the GMA began with a flawed design and evolved through political circumstances into a ineffective water conservation...
