  • Agriculture Plant Nursery - Case Study

    Challenge A plant nursery company had water quality issues from the well water source that there were using for irrigation purposes in their plant growing operations. These water quality issues including total dissolved salts (TDS) around 2500 mg/l, as well as turbidity, mineral hardness and microbiological contaminants. The plants were slow growing. ...

  • Five Ways to Manage the Soil for Planting

    The soil, as the primary resource for food production and the most important tool for every farmer, is crucial for farming. Successful farming begins with the quality soil, which provides water and essential nutrients to the crops. Rich and healthy soil, combined with the appropriate amount of water and sunlight can significantly contribute to global food production. Proper soil management ...

  • Using Compost To Control Plant Diseases

    Losses due to soilborne diseases on some greenhouse, nursery and vegetable crops can amount to thousands of dollars per acre annually. Until the 1930s, organic amendments — consisting of animal and green manures, coupled with crop rotation — were principal methods of control. But these approaches were largely abandoned for reasons of cost and inconvenience after commercial fertilizers and the ...

  • Tillage requirements for integrating winter-annual grazing in peanut production: plant water status and productivity

    The use of crop rotation systems involving winter-annual grazing can help peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) producers increase profitability, although winter-annual grazing could result in excessive soil compaction, which can severely limit yields. We conducted a 3-yr field study on a Dothan loamy sand in southeastern Alabama to develop a conservation tillage system for integrating peanut with ...

  • Growing substrates for aromatic plant species in green roofs and water runoff quality: pilot experiments in a Mediterranean climate

    Green roof technology has evolved in recent years as a potential solution to promote vegetation in urban areas. Green roof studies for Mediterranean climates, where extended drought periods in summer contrast with cold and rainy periods in winter, are still scarce. The present research study assesses the use of substrates with different compositions for the growth of six aromatic plant species ...

  • Impact of varying planting Dates and tillage systems on cotton growth and lint yield production

    As economic conditions deteriorated, cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) producers have looked to improve profit margins by reducing inputs while maintaining yields. Pairing the yield benefits from early planting with the input reductions from conservation tillage might help accomplish those goals. The objective was to determine how growth, lint yield, and fiber quality were impacted by planting ...

  • Case study: fish processing plant wastewater treatment

    Abstract This presentation describes the full scale installation of a wastewater treatment system at the Ocean Gold Seafood ("OCS") plant in Westport, Washington, USA. Local Government requires that fish processors remove total suspended solids (TSS), fats, oil and grease (FOGs) and colloidal materials almost completely in order to allow for efficient disinfection. The OCS plant had only ...

  • Hit the Spring Planting Target with Hydraulic Down Force

    Will Hutchinson enjoys a good challenge, especially when it comes to improving production on his row crop, wheat and alfalfa farm near Murfreesboro, Tennessee. So when he saw the opportunity to leverage Ag Leader’s Hydraulic Down Force system to prevent a common problem and improve his planting operations on acres where he plants cover crops, he jumped at the chance. Two years later, ...

  • Design of an integrated piggery system with recycled water, biomass production and water purification by vermiculture, macrophyte ponds and constructed wetlands

    Since 2001 the swine experimental station of Guernévez has studied biological treatment plants for nutrient recovery and water recycling, suited to the fresh liquid manure coming out of flushing systems. An integrated system with continuous recycling was set up in 2007, associated with a piggery of 30 pregnant sows. It includes a screen, a vermifilter, and macrophyte ponds alternating with ...

  • Unique Approach for Sizing a Reclaimed Water Spray Irrigation System Maximizes Benefits

    In 2004, the City of Raleigh Public Utilities Department (CORPUD) initiated a reclaimed water spray irrigation system project to irrigate approximately 130 acres of its existing 1,030-acre farmland used in the past to land apply Class B biosolids. Unlike typical land application or reclaimed water irrigation systems, the primary driver was not to minimize surface water discharge, but rather to ...

  • Georgetown, Texas Irrigation System Master Plan and Reclaimed Water Program

    ABSTRACTThe City of Georgetown, Texas is a rapidly growing community located about 30 miles north of Austin in central Texas. Georgetown is situated on the recharge zone of the Edwards Aquifer, a major groundwater resource in central Texas. The City relies on groundwater resources for about half of its drinking water supply. The other half of its drinking water supply is provided by Lake ...

  • Cattail plants’ Biomass as a bulking agent in sewage Sludge composting and the effect of the produced Compost on cattail plants’ Growth

    In every Greek island there is at least one town with more than 20,000 inhabitants. Several smaller towns and villages range from a few hundreds to a few thousands in population. Usually in the larger towns there are sewage treatment facilities providing at least secondary treatment of wastewater. In most cases the effluent produced is drained to the sea and the sludge is dumped in landfills. In ...

  • The water we eat

    Agriculture imposes a heavy and growing burden on Europe's water resources, threatening water shortages and damage to ecosystems. To achieve sustainable water use, farmers must be given the right price incentives, advice and assistance. Food is intrinsically bound to human wellbeing. Besides the importance of good food for good health and the pleasure we derive from eating, agricultural ...

  • New animal feed plant relies on proven sera dosing technology

    Top animal feed is a result of the exact application of composition during the production process as well as the use of stateof-the-art technology. The correct planning of the systems engineering is as important as the experience of the staff in the production department. When the Rothkötter animal feed plant was built in Haren-Hüntel, the company relied on sera – a name widely ...

Inputs were varied according to yield zones derived from yield maps, detailed maps of soil organic matter ...

  • A model approach to evaluate irrigation system water balance: an example from the Gediz Basin, Turkey

    An increase in the amount of water used for agriculture has resulted in the need for water savings and measurements in the agricultural sector. With the increasing competition for water, not only should irrigation water be considered, but also an approach encompassing the total water balance is necessary. A clear understanding of all the components of the water balance is essential so as to ...
