Southern Europe Could Lose $22 Billion Fighting Deadly Olive Tree Disease The tree killer is a bacterium called xylella fastidiosa. It has killed millions of olive trees in Italy and is now.

In the case of ‘closed’ river basins, as is the case in many areas in southern Europe (e.g., Guadalquivir in southern Spain), differentiated irrigation-water taxation schemes (both for surface and ground waters) could provide an instrument to alleviate the over-allocation of available resources.

In Southern Europe, irrigated agriculture is by far the largest consumer of freshwater resources. However, consistent information on irrigation water use in the European Union is still lacking.

Downloadable (with restrictions). This paper evaluates economic and environmental effects of two incentive-based water management policies to address climate change impacts on irrigated agriculture: water markets and irrigation subsidies. A Southern European case study assesses farmers' long and short-run adaptation responses under climate change and policy interventions with a discrete.

This was the technique that was spread through southern Europe by the Roman Empire, 1, years after the Chinese account was written. About B.C., iron first came into use in China, though the first evidence of it being used in salt making is not until B.C.

by a man named Yi Dun. The map displays very well the focal areas of irrigation in Southern Europe (for example, the Po plain, the Guadalquivir, the Ebro basin, smaller plains in Southern Italy and Greece).

In Central and Northern Europe a belt of irrigated areas extends from France to the Benelux-Countries and Denmark. source: irrigation pocket book or, facts, figures, and formula, for irrigation engineers, 1 jan (53–54) TN Water resources management: its role in effective utilization of water resources in developing countries — a case study of Gujarat State, India.

Europeans use billions of cubic metres of water every year not only for drinking water, but also for use in farming, manufacturing, heating and cooling, tourism and other service sectors. With thousands of freshwater lakes, rivers and underground water sources available, the supply of water in Europe may seem limitless.

Custodio underlines that, especially in southern Europe, the irrigation practices and the water requirements to sustain the coastal tourism industry exhort a strong pressure on water resources. The impact of groundwater salinization in coastal areas affects both natural vegetation biodiversity and agricultural production, through soil.

In California, alfalfa is grown on a large area ranging betweenandhectares and ranks among the thirstiest crops. While the hay production industry is often scrutinized for the large usage of the state’s agricultural water, alfalfa is a crucial feed-supplier for the livestock and dairy sectors, which rank among the most profitable commodity groups in the state.

This publication is intended to provide guidance in determining crop water requirements and their application in planning, design and operation of irrigation projects. Part presents suggested methods to derive crop water requirements. The use of four well-known methods for determining such requirements is defined.
