Irrigation Water Monitoring Articles

  • Irrigation Application Management

    The Irrigation Applications management takes all measurements of the inlet discharge and pressure at the pivot point and pivot end. Especially when the ground is uneven, where we take readings at the highest point. Preferably, this pressure value should be at least 5 PSI higher than the rated value of the pressure regulator, to ensure safety and proper operation, as the regulator must be ...

  • Agriculture and economics in the Water Framework Directive: progress and limitations

    Agriculture is having an increasing impact on water resources in Spain, both from a quantitative (consumption) and qualitative (pollution) perspective. Therefore, the implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) will have a great impact on this sector. In fact, new river management plans aim to reduce these pressures through the implementation of programmes of measures. These instruments ...

  • Effects of wastewater irrigation on soil properties and turfgrass growth

    Reuse of treated wastewater for turf irrigation is often viewed as one way to maximize existing urban water resources. The aim of this study is to evaluate the applicability of treated wastewater for turfgrass and assess the effects of continuous use of treated water on the soil and crop. Two turfgrass plots irrigated with drinking water and treated wastewater were monitored over a two-year ...

  • 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 ...
