Irrigation Engineering is important since it helps determine future Irrigation expectations. Irrigation has been a central feature of agriculture for over 5000 years, and was the basis of the economy and society of numerous societies, ranging from Asia to Arizona. Irragation can be termed as the artificial process of applying water to the soil to help in growing agricultural crops or maintaining the landscapes when there is shortage of natural water by rain. Additionally, irrigation also has a few other uses in crop production, which include protecting plants against frost, suppressing weed growth in grain fields and preventing soil consolidation. In contrast, agriculture that relies only on direct rainfall is referred to as rain-fed or dryland farming. Irrigation systems are also used for dust suppression, disposal of sewage, and in mining. Irrigation is often studied together with drainage, which is the natural or artificial removal of surface and sub-surface water from a given area. water is required for agriculture. sometimes this water requirement is fulfilled by rain, but there are some dry areas where irrigation is the only process by which water is supplied to crops. Irrigation Engineering uses from OMICS Group are an open access journal named as Irrigation and Drainage Systems Engineering which strives to release issues quarterly and is adamant to publish new findings related to the field of Irrigation Engineering. The mission of the Irrigation Engineering uses provides a forum for publishing new findings on Engineering principles and technology. Currently our primary research objective is to encourage and assist the development of better and faster measures of Engineering activity. In cases where we believe we can contribute directly, as opposed to through highlighting the work of others, we are producing our own measures of Irrigation Engineering.
