Research Advances in Sustainable Micro Irrigation


About the Series

"Water for food production is clearly one of the grand challenges of the 21st century. Hopefully this book series will help irrigators and famers around the world to increase the adoption of water savings technology such as micro irrigation. I congratulate the editors on the completion and publication of this book series on micro irrigation." 
—Vincent F. Bralts, PhD, PE, Professor and Ex-Associate Dean, Agricultural and Biological Engineering Department, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana

"This book series is informative and is a must for all irrigation planners to minimize the problem of water scarcity worldwide. Dr. Goyal, the Father of Irrigation Engineering in Puerto Rico and pioneer on micro irrigation in the Latin America (and my longtime colleague, has done an extraordinary job in the presentation of this series." 
—Miguel A Muñoz, PhD, Ex-President of University of Puerto Rico; and Professor/Soil Scientist 

"I believe that this innovative book series will aid the irrigation fraternity throughout the world. I congratulate Dr. Goyal on his professional contributions and the distinction in micro irrigation." 
—A. M. Michael, PhD, Former Professor/Director, Water Technology Center–IARI; Ex-Vice-Chancellor, Kerala Agricultural University, Trichur, Kerala

This book series includes 10 volumes and covers a multitude of important aspects of micro irrigation management in agriculture. 

The books are important as reference books for professionals and can serve as textbooks for graduate and undergraduate courses in agriculture and civil engineering. These books are valuable resources. 

With increased agricultural production, irrigated land has increased in the arid and subhumid zones around the world, and this, in conjunction with the increasing demand for water and energy for agriculture, has made the need for alternate methods of water management. The books present the perspectives and experience from authors from around the world, in different climate zones, with different soils, and with the cultivation of diverse crops.
