Comentarios sobre la sostenibilidad

An efficient irrigation system encourages deligent use of water ressources especially in dry times and/or regions. The dependence on water restrictions is reduced when less water is needed and new techniques should reduce the energy costs and therefore GHG emissions. With an efficient water irrigation no leaching of nutrients will happen. For some farmers the investments could be too high, so an irrigation cooperations could be the solution.
