  • Cost Effective Irrigation with Centre Pivot Irrigation Systems

    There are certain factors that should be taken into consideration when choosing the best irrigation system for your specific requirements. Some of these factors include the type of crop you are watering, the size of the land which requires irrigation, where your water is coming from and how much labour the system requires to operate. Dragline irrigation or movable pipe systems require far more ...

  • Conjunctive effect of water productivity and cultivation pattern on agricultural water management

    Agricultural water resources are scarce in Iran, and agricultural water management is essential to overcome this limitation. Determination of the water productivity index (WP) using the methods of optimization of cropping patterns and optimal water allocation is the most effective tool in water management in the agricultural sector. In this study, a non-linear optimization model was used to ...

  • Eima 2016: A success for irrigation

    Energy saving and maximum efficiency are the cardinal points of agriculture 2.0. Today, through the micro irrigation and subsurface irrigation, agricultural production reached a high level of efficiency that assures quality and quantity. “Micro-irrigation”, or drip irrigation, is a method which allows the farmer to give the same amount of water to the ...

  • Changes in water demands under adaptation actions to climate change in an irrigation district

    Climate change will affect the water balance of irrigated agriculture. Therefore, farmers and irrigation managers should consider adapting to new scenarios. Changes in water demands in a Mexican irrigation district were studied using an irrigation-scheduling model. The impact on water demands of two potential adaptation actions, adjusting planting season and using longer-season varieties (LV), ...

  • Characterization of controlling hydrogeochemical processes using factor analysis in Puyang Yellow River irrigation district (China)

    Groundwater chemistry is diverse and complicated and is regulated by both natural hydrogeochemical and anthropogenic processes. Determining the governing processes and their influence on groundwater chemistry is very important to understand groundwater quality evolution and establish reasonable water management strategies. Main cations (Ca2+, Mg2+, Na+, K+, and ...

  • A two-stage evolutionary optimization approach for an irrigation system design

    In this work, an optimal design of a water distribution network is proposed for large irrigation networks. The proposed approach is built upon an existing optimization method (NSGA-II), but the authors are proposing its effective application in a new two-step optimization process. The aim of the paper is to demonstrate that not only is the choice of method important for obtaining good ...

  • CSE algorithm: ‘canal survey estimation’ to evaluate the flow rate extractions and hydraulic state in irrigation canals

    One of the main problems in water management of irrigation systems is the control of the equitable distribution of water among different orifice offtakes. The difficulty of managing a canal is partly caused by the lack of knowledge of the canal state because the scheduled demand is often not fulfilled, since farmers extract more water than is scheduled and it is impossible for the watermaster ...

  • Evaluation of yield, quality and crop water stress index of sugar beet under different irrigation regimes

    This study was carried out to evaluate the use of the crop water stress index (CWSI) for irrigation scheduling of sugar beet for two years under the semi arid climate of Iran. Statistical relationships between CWSI and yield, quality parameters and irrigation water use efficiency (IWUE) were investigated. Irrigations were scheduled based on 100 (I100), 85 (I85), 70 (I50) and 0% (I0) of plant ...
