Recharge is a term used in water management in farming that refers to the natural process of increasing the water levels in groundwater aquifers, which are essential for irrigation and other agricultural practices.

Recharge is achieved through various processes such as snow run off percolating into the ground, surface runoff collection, or the intentional infiltration of water into the ground.

The result of recharge is to improve the sustainability of water resources, reduce water stress in agriculture, and ensure that adequate water supplies are available during dry periods.

Recharge also helps to prevent groundwater over-draft and maintain the health of the ecosystem by supporting plant growth, and soil moisture.
