  • Distribution of moisture and salinity under deficit irrigation and irrigation water salinity in an alternative trickle irrigation system of tape

    This study was performed to investigate the horizontal and vertical distribution of soil moisture and salinity using an alternative trickle irrigation system of drip tape. Four main treatments consisting of 100, 80, 70, and 60% of the plants’ water requirements and three sub-treatments of 2.1, 4.6, and 10.2 dS/m, were conducted. Following irrigation, the soil moisture and salinity ...

  • Why Drip Irrigation Design is Crucial to Your Success

    Drip irrigation is one of the most cost-effective and efficient watering methods in agriculture. It has become incredibly popular in the past 50-years and has been widely adopted by agriculturalists in dozens of countries throughout the world. In simple term, drip irrigation works by sending water through plastic pipes into drip emitters. These emitters are specifically designed to release water ...

  • Expanding the applications of micro irrigation `Drip` treatment and disposal systems in Delaware

    Abstract An 18–month field evaluation of four micro–irrigation "drip" treatment and disposal systems was conducted to determine if reducing the separation distance between the bottom of the drip–line and the seasonal high water table (limiting condition) could be reduced from 18 inches to 12 inches. In this study three systems did not have advanced ...

  • Design of drip irrigation lateral for optimum capital and operating cost

    The drip irrigation system cost can be reduced effectively by using optimal design methods and decreasing the system pressure. In this paper, a two-stage optimum drip irrigation lateral design model is developed based on a new uniformity formula that includes hydraulic variation, emitter manufacture’s variation, and field roughness variation. The non-linear objective function minimizes the ...

  • Intake and digestibility of ‘Coastal’ bermudagrass hay from treated swine waste using subsurface drip irrigation

    Waste handling systems for confined swine production in the upper South (approximately 32–37° N and 79–93° W) depend mainly on anaerobic lagoons and application of the waste effluent to cropland. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the quality of ‘Coastal’ bermudagrass [Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers.] hay receiving effluent generated from a raw swine waste treatment system designed to ...

  • Water footprint assessments for Jain irrigation systems case study

    Water footprint assessments were conducted for dehydrated onions and micro-irrigation systems (MIS), produced by Jain Irrigation Systems Ltd. in Maharashtra, India. A key objective was to understand the differences in the water footprints between onions grown under drip and flood irrigation, both in terms of water usage and agricultural productivity. The team was also interested in the practical ...

  • LG Sound, controlling algae in irrigation reservoirs

    Algae growth in irrigation water can cause a serious problem. Algae in irrigation tanks can clog the entire irrigation system, such as the pumps, filters, drip-installation and sprinkler nozzles. Besides that the algae and their by-products can also be spread over the irrigated area. In addition, some types of fungi, also present in these waters, can be harmful for the plants grown. Typical ...

  • Sugarcane responses to irrigation and nitrogen in semiarid south Texas

    Water and N are often limiting factors for sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) production. This study was conducted to determine the effect of different levels of water availability on sugarcane growth, yield, and responses to N application, and also to evaluate the effectiveness of alternative N application methods. Three irrigation levels (20% below crop evapotranspiration [ETc], full ETc replacement, ...

  • Comparative research on water and energy-saving irrigation systems in the GAP and Aegean regions of Turkey

    This research was carried out to determine the effects of furrow, sprinkler, drip, mobile nozzle, mobile drip and LEPA (Low Energy Precision Application) irrigation methods on the yields and Water Use Efficiency of cotton in the South Eastern Anatolian Project (GAP) Area and in the Aegean Region. According to the results obtained, the highest yield was produced from the drip irrigation method. ...

  • Lg Sonic Ultrasonic Algae and biofilm control for irrigation case study

    Water used for irrigation can contain high levels of nutrients, some of these nutrients are beneficial for the plants watered, but can also lead to extensive algal growth. Algae in irrigation tanks can clog the irrigation system and can also be spread over the irrigated area. In addition, some types of fungus, also present in these waters, can be harmful for the plants grown. Therefore the ...
