Irrigation helps to grow agricultural crops, maintain landscapes, and revegetate disturbed soils in dry areas and during periods of less than average rainfall. Irrigation also has other uses in crop production, including frost protection, suppressing weed growth in grain fields and preventing soil.

The Blue Nile, which contributes 68% of the yield of the White Nile, is the main source of water and plant nutrients for GIS. Its electrical conductivity is only mΩ; with an annual suspended load of 60 million tones (Plusquellec, ).The main water reservoir is the million cubic meter (MCM) Senar dam which supplies over 5 BCM by: 2.

Projects in the western part of Sudan were implemented during the s, s and late s to combat the effects of drought by improving crop production and increasing municipal water use.
