Water efficiency depends on soil type and crop type. There's no point having the most efficient water system in the world if you don't have the soil type to make it sustainable or the  crop to grow with it. 

Did you have a particular crop in mind, Debbie? And are their particular parameters of efficiency you are looking to meet, ie. water efficiency, energy efficiency, capital costs, ongoing costs, maintenance, etc.
