Soil erosion is a serious agricultural problem. Most of the available literature
on the subject concerns nonirrigated cropland where natural precipitation
and snowmelt water produce the forces needed to erode soil and transport
sediment. Most of the water providing those forces for erosion on irrigated
land is that applied by humans to supply water to growing crops. The purpose
of this chapter is to provide a review of irrigation-induced soil erosion
and to supply some insight into its hazards and control.
