Book Description

An introduction to runoff agriculture - a form of agricultural irrigation - this text describes how the use of surface and subsurface water, often overlooked and wasted, enables both small farmers and commercial agriculturists to improve yields and the security of harvest, even in harsh and remote environments. The text introduces the techniques and strategies, as well as the challenges and the potential of the crucial approach, which can contribute so much to reducing land degradation and improving conservation and sustainability.

Biological Agriculture and Horticulture 'This excellent and very modestly priced book will serve both as an introduction and a well researched reference text on a much neglected aspect of irrigated agriculture.' Experimental Agriculture
