      The economy of Sudan has boomed on the back of increases in oil production, high oil prices, and large inflows of foreign direct investment until the second half of GDP growth registered more than 10% per year in and From to date, Sudan has been working with the IMF to implement macroeconomic reforms, including a managed float of the exchange cy: Sudanese pound (SDG). As competition intensified and water sources became limited, successful irrigation farmers reduced labor input and increased application efficiency of their irrigation. Sprinkler systems, such as the center pivot, enabled them to do both. While energy costs were low, the economic feasibility of sprinkler irrigation was sound. But energy costs have risen without comparable increases in prices Cited by:

Irrigation pumping is a major expense of agricultural operations, especially in arid/semi-arid areas that extract large amounts of water from deep groundwater resources.

Studying and improving pumping efficiencies can have direct impacts on farm net profits and on the amount of greenhouse gases (GHG) emitted from pumping plants. In this study, the overall pumping efficiency (OPE), the GHG Cited by: 2.

This book focuses on proving that deficit irrigation could play an important role in increasing food production under water scarcity. Although application of deficit irrigation involves loss in crop productivity, still it secures water to be use in cultivating more lands and produce more food.
