banking, rotational fallowing and other measures.


• Consider methods to indemnify irrigators who voluntarily enter into water sharing arrangements, such as methods to protect them from the downside risks of dryland yields and methods that would let them realize the benefits of high crop prices on lands they committed to fallowing or crop switching.


Although the list above doesn’t cover technology in a traditional engineering sense, it may help define research that will ensure irrigation remains viable in areas of competing uses of water. My hope is that the “buying and drying” of irrigated lands for municipal and environmental use will be minimized if irrigators are willing to give up a little, as long as they are adequately compensated. So, I guess I would like to see an “Irrigation Technology and Adoption Center,” rather than a sole focus upon traditional technology.
