The water associations of the DBVW organise
irrigation to safeguard our agricultural yields.
Water is also an essential and limiting factor for the yield potential of our agriculture. In the dry summer periods, our crops and cultivated plants often cannot manage without additional water.
The DBVW water associations join forces to organise groundwater abstraction for the irrigation of agricultural land. This secures crop yields and promotes soil health, as water stimulates the processing of nutrients by plants and these do not remain in the soil.
