the USA 'bread basket' in the midweat uses the heck out of these pivot irrigation systems...
but the aquifer under the land id rapidly being depleated
(probably because the annual floods of the Mississippi and other
rivers which feed into the mighty mississippi are basically made into wide canals or channels of water which will not regularly infuse the aquifer
with new supply water)
So, the Gaza area has a Aquifer, suitable for yearly irrigation... from what the Mediterranian seepage into a underground strata?
free fresh water, huh?
