This research project will focus on innovations related to agricultural water management and irrigation. In the recent decades, a wide variety of innovations with the potential for improving water use efficiency have been devised. However, adoption rates of some of these innovations have been slow. This project will devise strategies to improve technology adoption in order to improve water use efficiency.
