Abstract:

Irrigation is critical to our food production and food security and is a vital component of Texas’ productive agricultural economy. Texas ranks third in the United States in both agricultural acres irrigated and irrigation
water applied. Significant advances have been made in irrigation efficiency; however, challenges remain. The following information is drawn primarily from data and reports published by the Texas Water Development Board, the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistics Service, and Texas A&M University. Together these sources provide valuable perspective on the status and trends of irrigated agriculture in Texas.
