The Provost of the College of Agriculture and Natural Sciences, Prof. Livingstone K. Sam-Amoah, has observed that any country that depends on agricultural production as basis for industrial development is most likely to fail if irrigation is not part of the development plan.

“Indeed  in some parts of the world, irrigation remains the dividing line between abundant food and no food at all. Irrigated agriculture represents 20 percent of the total cultivated land, but contributes 40 percent of the total produced worldwide,” he noted.
