Abstract

Agriculture happens to be the major water consumer in most nations and particularly in developing nations. To ensure sustainability and availability of water for everyone, we need to plan water usage in agriculture properly. One neglected factor is the soil water holding capacity, which if managed properly, will lead to less watering needs and hence reduce the water usage in agriculture by adequate levels to ensure a sustainable water supply in the nation. This method is not just a conceptual idea, but also an achievable one by improving the soil organic matter content of soil..
