Rooftop Rainwater Harvesting For Plant Irrigation I: Design Concepts and Water Quantity

First Paragraph:
Rainwater harvesting is used as a primary source of domestic or irrigation water in less-developed countries and arid climates. This is often the case where water infrastructure is limited or rain is insufficient for crop production. However, rainwater harvesting is used increasingly in developed nations for the irrigation of crops and landscaped areas and other non-potable uses. Users include owners of municipal buildings, businesses, plant nurseries, and individual homes.
