Increased demands on freshwater supplies in arid regions threaten the future sustained availability of fresh water for irrigation and crop production.‎ The need to increase food production in arid regions can only be achieved by increased productivity of irrigated lands and/or increased acreage under irrigation.‎ Alternative water supplies as well as more efficient use of existing water supplies are essential in avoiding a food crisis in regions such as the Middle East and North Africa, and to sustain the food production and local economies in the southwestern U.S.‎, among others.‎ Also, increased use of marginal water such as brackish and treated wastewater increases the risk of reduced water productivity due to higher salinity levels.‎
