21st Century Agriculture
Volume 4 Number 4 July/August 2005

Agriculture accounts for the greatest single water use in the Southwest. Demands for water by growing urban areas, environmental and recreational interests, and industries, combined with many recent years of drought, create competition for water that is greater than ever. How are farmers coping? New technologies allow improved efficiency in irritation and for moving water through irrigation districts, but salinity remains a growing problem.

Our feature articles discuss these and other aspects of agriculture in the 21st century.
