Water utilization is discussed in relation to the adverse climatic and soil conditions in South Africa and the special role of water in growth and yield. The role of sound management practices in the efficient utilization of water is emphasized. A plea is made for urgent measures from the government to arrest veld deterioration and for the stabilization of agronomic crop yields, as well as for clearly directed research efforts.
