5 WATER QUALITY As man makes more intensive use of water resources, the presence of dissolved and suspended materials in water becomes strikingly more 20 Engineering Practices for Agricultural Production and Water Conservation important. Fortunately, man has now come to recognize that water management programs must be given attention to both the quantity and the quality of water. Appropriate to mention here is pioneering research directed to understand water movement through porous materials, interactions between solutes in water and soil or other materials and the effects of solutes on the soil and on plant growth.

The areas can be classified as follows: a. Increasing precipitation and utilization of runoff from watershed b. Water storage c. Water conveyance d. Irrigation system and land preparation e. Water quality studies and use the saline water f. Problem soils and reclamation g. Irrigation management h. 1 INCREASING PRECIPITATION AND UTILIZATION OF RUNOFF FROM WATERSHED Great efforts have been made by the scientific community and by commercial operators to develop a better understanding of weather mechanisms 16 Engineering Practices for Agricultural Production and Water Conservation and techniques for altering conditions as to create precipitation on demand.

He was conferred an honorary doctorate degree by the Linkoping University Sweden during 1989 for his outstanding research on water management. The Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU) awarded him the Doctor of Science (Honoris causa) for his outstanding services in irrigation management in 2005. Since 1953, he has worked as a civil engineer in the Public Works Department in Tamil Nadu State; and as Lecturer, Professor, and Dean of College of Agricultural Engineering at TNAU, Coimbatore, India.
