      Findings: The value of water is important in micro-level decisions -- including to farmers when deciding whether to sell rights to irrigation water; to city planners when deciding whether to purchase appropriative rights; and to an environmental organization when deciding whether to purchase water rights for instream flow protection. Throughout the arid regions of the world, irrigated agriculture is a major water user. In the United States, irrigation consumes over 80% of all water nationwide (USDA ERS ). In Mexico, agriculture also has the highest consumptive use of water, at 78% (Urbina Soria y Martinez Fernández , ).Cited by: 3.

    irrigation, in agriculture, artificial watering of the land. Although used chiefly in regions with annual rainfall of less than 20 in. (51 cm), it is also used in wetter areas to grow certain crops, e.g., rice.   Worldwide, agriculture represents 70% of total blue water use and 86% of blue + green water use (World Water Assessment Programme, ), whereas livestock farming uses 15% of the evapotranspiration of irrigated crops, 33% of that of rain-grown crops, and 68% of that of permanent pastures and by:

Agriculture is coming under more and more pressure to justify its use of the world's freshwater resources and to improve its productive and environmental performance.

The allocations of raw water to agriculture (and the allocations within the agriculture sector) all need to be negotiated in a transparent way. This report reviews the large set of literature on the subject and makes the case for.
