Abstract:
This paper is a summary of the various types of methods that can be used to store water for water harvesting agrisystems in arid and semiarid lands. Supplemental water for irrigation is essential for maximum production. Even though storage of water in flat terrain may be relatively expensive it is generally very cost effective if used for supplemental irrigation with the soil profile serving as the primary source of water storage. Seepage and evaporation control are discussed. There are several options for seepage control. In general, evaporation control is more expensive. The compartmented reservoir is one way of significantly reducing evaporation at a cost low enough for supplemental irrigation.
