Conséquences des sécheresses 1985 et 1986 dans le Sud-Ouest de la France : Elaboration d'un Programme de lutte
Consequences of the droughts of 85 and 86 in the south-west of France. Setting up a combat programme
Ministère de l'Agriculture et de la Forêt, Paris
The years 1985 and 86 were marked by two successive droughts in the south-west of France which had a big impact on the agricultural economy.
These circumstances highlighted the importance of irrigation as a factor in modernizing farms in these regions. The development of agricultural hydraulics has greatly increased and water resources, have been shown to be the limiting factor to irrigation.
A precise inventory, by sub-basins, was therefore drawn up to study the situation from the water resources/needs point of view, taking into account the prospect of increased irrigation.
From this work, a major building programme has been made part of the State-Region Contracts Plan. This will enable resources to be increased by approximately 150 million cubic meters for the following regions: Midi-Pyrénées, Aquitaine and Poitou-Charente.
