Rivulis Irrigation - Water: Vital to sustaining life

Water is a limited natural resource that impacts not only the existence but also the quality of life. Water supplies are increasingly stressed given increasing demand due to population growth, competitive demand for food, fiber and fuel crops, and a disparity between the location of the water supplies and the demand.

In many countries throughout the world, quantity and quality of the available water is a major concern. Continually rising demand from agriculture, industry, and domestic uses are competing for this increasingly scarce resource. As the largest consumer of water, agriculture is faced with the significant challenge of feeding the ever increasing population; in addition to limited water, both in quantity and quality, the availability of fertile land is steadily declining.

Micro Irrigation has a major impact on global food production by reducing water usage and producing greater yields.
