Abstract: Of all the arts of food production, none is older or more important than irrigation. Historical and archaeological findings show that irrigation played a major role in the development of ancient civilizations. Large, arid, and semi-arid countries owed their existence to knowledge of irrigation practices. This chapter examines various irrigation practices, including innovations that followed the Industrial Revolution.
