Water is essentially needed in agriculture and food production. As demand for food increases, water demand for agriculture will also increase accordingly. However, water availability for agriculture will unavoidably decrease due to competition for other needs, including for industries and household uses. Water quality has also been deteriorated due to many kinds and sources of pollution. These water-related issues create challenges for increasing food production to satisfy need of continuously growing global population.
