  1. Abstract, As the demand for products from timberlands has been increasing, the genera Eucalyptus has highlighted for its yield potential and also due to its great adaptation to Brazilian soils, which are in general moderately acid. Therefore, the aim was to evaluate the growth of the hybrid...
  2. Abstract,Scientific Electronic Library Online, 2013 Further food production may be limited by the reduced availability of water resources. Since irrigated agriculture is the productive sector that presents a higher demand of water, this sector has been under intense pressure in order to ensure...
  3. Revitalizing irrigation across Africa andAsiais key to ensuring that future populations do not go hungry. The need for groundwater management is growing as farmers increasingly pump groundwater to meet their water needs, leaving behind the old systems and institutions that managed them. Using...
  4. Abstract,Crop and Pasture Science, 2015 Field experiments were set up in order to evaluate the yield response of quinoa (Chenopodium quinoaWilld. cv. Titicaca) to irrigation with saline and fresh water under Mediterranean climate from 2010 to 2012 in Adana, Turkey. Irrigation treatments in 2010...
  5. Irrigation dates back to roughly 6000 BC, when the waters of the Nile and Tigris-Euphrates were first diverted to feed farmers’ fields. Today, agriculture consumes 70 percent of the world’s freshwater resources, and irrigation is essential for 40 percent of the world’s food production. Because...
  6. 2015-01-28 Conséquences: réduction des surfaces des terres agricoles ; risques d’insécurité alimentaire conjoncturelle; le taux de couverture des besoins en céréales entre 2002 et 2010 est en baisse (Cadre d’accélération de l’atteinte des OMD., 2012); la réduction des revenus des populations rurales,...
  7. Abstract, Irrigation and Drainage, 2011 The African Market Garden (AMG) is a holistic horticultural production system for small producers based on low‐pressure drip irrigation combined with a crop management package. Over the last 10 years ICRISAT (the International Crops Research Institute for...
  8. Abstract, Horticulturae, 2016 A wicking bed (WB) is a plant driven system where plants receive water through capillary rise from a self-contained coarse material-filled subsoil reservoir. WBs have been widely promoted as a water-efficient irrigation solution for small-scale and urban food...
  9. 2007-10-20 Deep pipe irrigation is fairly simple and inexpensive, does not require high quality water, and makes very efficient use of water.
  10. Measured irrigation is anirrigation scheduling technique. For conventional drip irrigation systems, the volume of water delivered by a dripperduring the irrigation event depends upon the flow rate. But for measured irrigation the volume of water delivered by a dripperduring the irrigation event...
  11. Abstract, Journal of Food Protection, 2005 Awareness is growing that fresh or minimally processed fruit and vegetables can be sources of disease-causing bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and helminths. Irrigation with poor-quality water is one way that fruit and vegetables can become contaminated with...
  12. Abstract, Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, 2017 The deficit in electricity and high diesel costs affects the pumping requirements of community water supplies and irrigation; so using solar energy for water pumping is a promising alternative to conventional electricity and diesel based...
  13. 2015-03-26 This workshop will explored ideas for irrigating vegetable gardens including ideas for homemade irrigation systems as well as factory made irrigation systems. Beth has a B.A in International Agribusiness and is a former ECHO intern who returned to ECHO in 2004 after working for 13 years in...
  14. 2017-01-20 This project deals with the development of wind powered water pump for irrigation purpose. Wind is a natural and renewable resource that is freely available all over the world. Harnessing this power for pumping water would save a lot on Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) costs that are...
  15. 2016-01-19 Prof. Dov Pasternak working in Israel, was among the pioneers of drip irrigation. He researched irrigation with saline water and conducted domestication of arid land crops. He received a UNESCO Chair for his work on desert research. For over 10 years Prof. Pasternak worked as Principal Scientist...
  16. Key Resource 1990-01-01 The agricultural use of saline water or soils can benefit many developing countries. Salt-tolerant plants can utilize land and water unsuitable for salt-sensitive crops (glycophytes) for the economic production of food, fodder, fuel, and other products. Halophytes (plants that grow in soils or...
