  • The Inter-Relationship Between Irrigation, Drainage and the Environment in the Aral Sea Basin

    The irrigated area in the Aral Sea basin totals about 7.5 million ha. Part of the water supplied to this area is consumed by the irrigated crops; the remainder drains into the groundwater basin, downstream depressions, or back into the rivers. But the water accumulates salts and chemicals during its period of use, causing environmental ...

  • The Last Days of the Rainbelt

    Out on the Colorado plains, you can still take old U.S. Highway 40 east of Denver. The lonely two-lane road leaves the Front Range and the famous Colorado high country far behind. Before you hit the Kansas line, you'll encounter vast grass-covered prairies, occasional cattle, patches of irrigated land, and a procession of little wind-blown towns ...

  • Salinity: Environment - Plants - Molecules

    This book addresses the responses of plants to salinity. Although salinity is a common environmental factor for marine organisms, for the majority of land plants high soil salinity is an environmental constraint that limits growth, productivity, and normal plant functions. Salinity is particularly widespread in arid/semiarid climates where crop ...

  • Crop Field Response to Deficit Irrigation

    With limited water resources to divert for agriculture, innovations aimed at increasing efficient use of irrigation water must be developed. Among the means to survive the consequences of water scarcity and yet to sustain high crop production under irrigated agriculture with decreasing share of water, deficient irrigation programs are highly ...

  • Irrigated Wheat. Managing your crop (En)

    Series: Non-series TitlesWheat is one of the most important food sources in the developing world. Sustainable intensification of irrigated wheat requires an adequate and balanced use of inputs. This self-help publication aims to contribute to a rational use of inputs by pointing out the various things that can go wrong with wheat crops and also ...

  • Towards the Rational Use of High Salinity Tolerant Plants

    The Symposium on high salinity tolerant plants, held at the University of Al Ain in December 1990, dealt primarily with plants tolerating salinity levels exceeding that of ocean water and which at the same time are promising for utilization in agriculture or forestry. These plants could be very useful for a country like the UAE where fresh ...

  • Irrigation of Agricultural Crops, Second Edition

    Irrigation is one of the most important human activities sustaining civilization. On average, irrigated crop yields are double those from unirrigated land. It has been estimated that to meet the needs of the 8 billion population by 2025, the irrigated area must expand more than 20% and irrigated crop yields must improve by 40% above current ...

  • ETo Calculator - Evapotranspiration from a reference surface (CD-ROM)

    FAO Land and Water Digital Media Series - CD-ROMReference evapotranspiration (ETo) is defined as the rate of evapotranspiration from a hypothetical grass reference crop closely resembling an extensive surface of 8 to 15cm tall, green grass cover of uniform height, actively growing, completely shading the ground and not short of water. The main ...
