Irrigation-induced erosion is one of the most serious sustainability issues in
agriculture, impacting not only the future strategic and commercial viability of irrigation
agriculture, but also the survival and comfort of earth's human population.
Preventing irrigation-induced erosion to maintain the high crop yield and quality
advantages of irrigated agriculture is also a key to the preservation of natural
ecosystems. This is because replacement of irrigated production requires two to
three times the equivalent rainfed production area to match any lost irrigated production
(Sojka, 1998).
