Reasonable regulation of irrigation and drainage is an important way to decrease water resource waste and water pollution, and to ensure the sustainable utilization of water resources. In this study, appropriate irrigation and drainage methods are proposed by optimizing agricultural water and soil resources based on the current status of water resource utilization in irrigation district in Northwest China, and as much as possible to reduce the amount of irrigation and drainage while ensuring the...

Irrigation uniformity, application efficiency and seasonal irrigation uniformity of mobile drip irrigation (MDI) were compared to those of low elevation spray application (LESA) and low energy precision application (LEPA). A center pivot fitted with two sets of MDI (with dripper flow rates of 3.8 L/h and 7.6 L/h), LESA and LEPA was used in this study. Irrigation uniformity tests were conducted in accordance with the American Society of Agricultural Engineers’ standards. Application efficiency wa...

Accurate design, appropriate management, and knowledge of relationships between the parameters affecting on the performance of a surface irrigation system are the factors which play an effective role in increasing the efficiency of these systems. If parameters such as advance distance can be well estimated per specified flow rate, the volume of infiltrated water can be estimated, thereby preventing water loss and enhancing irrigation efficiency to a great extent. In the present study evaluated t...

Dates are economically and culturally important in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The Emirates has a hyper-arid climate, such that rainfall (green water) is irrelevant for date production. Date farmers rely on irrigation with groundwater (blue water) that is brackish to grow the dates. However, the quantity of groundwater left in the underground reserves is diminishing. Leaching of polluted water (grey water) containing nitrogen and salts from the rootzone of the date palms is compromising the ...

Emitter clogging is a persistent problem for drip irrigation using treated effluent. To find an effective flushing regime, research was conducted using two water types (treated effluent and fresh groundwater) with two flushing frequencies (every irrigation event and every five irrigation events) and a control (no flushing). Thin-wall laterals with inline-labyrinth emitters were examined. The irrigation duration was 1 h daily for 91 days. Emitter discharge was monitored. At the end of the study, ...

Climate change is a significant global issue that will affect regional agriculture and water management of irrigation supplies. In this study, we project climate change impacts on water and irrigation requirements for major crops—wheat, cotton, and apricots—in Balkh province, Afghanistan. The methodology utilizes satellite imagery to overcome limitations in ground measurements necessary to understand current crop conditions and cultivation schedules for the study site. The climate model-averaged...

Groundwater management in irrigation areas requires a comprehensive understanding of the interactions between agricultural management practices and the underlying groundwater resource. Unsaturated zone modelling can be used to predict rates of water and solute movement through the soil profile. By incorporating expert knowledge and measured data, it is possible to investigate the relative influence of management vs environmental factors on water and solute movement. The Agricultural Production S...
