The increasing degradation of irrigation systems in Romania in recent decades, amid lack or insufficient maintenance and due to inadequate operation, coupled with low rainfall and unevenly distributed in the growing season, significantly affects agricultural production and living standards of the population from the irrigable territory of Romania. Due to this state of affairs, it was considered appropriate to conduct an analytical study to identify solutions to solve the objective problems faced by agricultural producers in Prut meadow amid drastic climate change in recent years, by rehabilitating and modernizing the irrigation infrastructure in the area. The increase of the technical-economic efficiency was taken into account, through a sustainable land-use. and by reducing irrigation water amount, aiming to obtain large, safe and quality agricultural production, while maintaining soil fertility. For this purpose, the scientifically substantiated results presented in scientific papers, technical and economic expertise as well as in projects and rehabilitation works performed on the components of irrigation facilities were analyzed. Both the works and the modern solutions adopted within the hydro-amelioration systems from the Prut meadow, from other areas of the country, as well as from abroad were analyzed. The investigations carried out highlighted possible appropriate research directions for the arrangements in the reference area, in order to streamline the crops irrigation activity.
