Water Conservation Technologies In Agriculture

Water Conservation Technologies In Agriculture

Technologies play a major role in reducing water consumption. This current research service discusses about management practices and seven technologies that can reduce water consumption in agriculture: Drip irriagation, desalination, hydroponics, variable rate irrigation (VRI), aeroponics, atmospheric water generation (AWG), and sensors and smart meters. The research service also talks about global and region-wise trends of the technologies, Key technology stakeholders for each technology and Opportunity evaluation and technology evolution for next five years.
