Afghanistan is a landlocked country with 32.2 million population and total area of 65.2 million hectare, while 2.1 million hectare area is irrigated despite having 3.2 million hectares of arable land. Water is the most important element of life that plays a vital rule in socio-economic development and preservation of safe environment. About 80% of people rely on agriculture in Afghanistan. As population increases and demand for food rises, there is need to supplement water use for agriculture production. In order to meet growing demand of agricultural production and bring more land under irrigation, it is essential to conserve water, modernize the irrigation system, manage the water and initiate high efficiency irrigation systems.
