The topic of the papers addressed current issues in irrigation and drainage in the United States and foreign countries. Some of the main topics were 1) The conjunctive use of ground water and surface water, 2) estimation of crop consumptive use, 3) rehabilitation of irrigation facilities, 4) use of computers in water management, 5) quality of surface water and groundwater, 6) management of pesticide and fertilizer, and 7) design and construction of water wells.
