ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance of effective design and management for efficient irrigation for crops affected by drought in Texas. It notes the statement of Jim Bordovsky, agricultural engineer at Texas AgriLife Research in Halfway, Texas, which comments on the significance of rainfall on irrigation success. Bordovsky further highlights the influence of low energy precision application (LEPA), and subsurface irrigation systems in designing and managing irrigation systems.
