As energy is an important input in agriculture which is used to extract groundwater for irrigation (Schoengold & Zilberman 2007; Dumler et al, 2009). Since agriculture production requires energy to pump groundwater, so the rising energy prices may affect the groundwater extraction and crop choice decisions that farmers made. Many studies have investigated the relationship between energy price and water demand. India and Mexico are typical countries for groundwater management. Badiani and Jessoe empirically analyze how the electricity subsidies will affect on groundwater extraction and agricultural production in India (Badiani et al,2013).
In many instances, it helped establish a strong economy for the Egyptians. Since the Nile River was the source of water for farming, the Egyptians were able to discover new ways to make a use of the water. As a consequence, the Egyptians developed a strong irrigation system that would establish their life much simple. The Ancient Egyptians believed that the flooding from the Nile River was a gift. In order to grow crops, the Egyptians built large basins that helped them divert the flood water to spread throughout the soil.
Ancient Egyptians relied on the Nile's bounty to develop into a strong and thriving civilization. Egyptians depended on the Nile to irrigate their crops. The Nile flooded for six months each year, then left behind layers of silt as the waters flooded. Egyptians grew crops such as wheat, barley, beans and cotton in the silt. They dug canals from the river to their farms so crops would receive water.
farmers were able to cultivate and farm on fertile land. Egyptians used the Nile for many things. For example, fish, silt, transportation, water was used by the Egyptians. Their source was always the Nile. The Nile’s overflow provided the Egyptians with food, water, and a way to transport people and items.
The Nile River has certainly played a critical role in the history of ancient Egypt. People have been using the nile river for fishing and growing crops for food. This river has given us water for a long time. About fifty five point five percent of all of our water come from the Nile in America today. The environmental impact it has on our land is the food, animals, and water it provides for us.
Over half of Earth’s 7.6 billion people live within two miles of a freshwater source. The human race has always settle and developed in to great cities and small villages,almost all which, are next to water. Humans use water to hydrate, to irrigate crops, and lately, to harness clean energy. Harnessing water power is not new, in the first industrial revolution mills were built along a river for grinding power, later on dams were built to create large scale production of renewable electricity. But what if the technology used in dams were to be used sewage systems, water mains, and water pipes?
The north was lower Egypt where the river spread into a delta and then emptied into the Mediterranean Sea. This Ancient Egyptian society lasted about 3,000 years. The Nile River shaped Ancient Egypt by creating a calendar, contributing food and water, and providing transportation and trade. The first reason the Nile River shaped Ancient Egypt was by creating a calendar. The Nile River Flood cycle chart shows that the flooding season, Akhet, was from mid-June to mid- October.
Most Egyptians live along the banks of the Nile River, so that they will have access to the water they need. The uses of this water are for water sources, transportation, and irrigation for farming. The water creates soil that is great for farming. In Egypt, the Nile River creates a green valley across the desert that is good for farming. People do not want to live in a hot and dry desert that have little water sources.
The people of the Indus River Valley Civilization ate lots of bread and beer, and the rich ones might have enjoyed some fruits. The different civilizations also developed different things to improve their society. Mesopotamians were the first ancient people to create an organized, permanent set of laws - the code of Hammurabi. Ancient Egypt was the first ancient river valley civilization to invent sails. They use these sails to ride up and down the Nile River trading
In future, the availability of water supply may not continue to cater the growth of population indefinitely. Migration of rural residents to cities has led to the increasing population in the city. For the rural population, consumer use water for crops, small-scale industrial and domestic. But for the city, the use of water is widespread compared to rural areas. Dam, reservoir, river and tank is hydraulic system structure that store the water for continues supply to all life on earth.
