2018 | ISBN: 1771885920 | English | 328 pages | PDF | 41 MB
With a roster of international contribut08rs, this volume offers an abundance of solutions to address agricultural water management challenges in todays water-scarce areas of the w08rld. The auth08rs present studies on farmer-friendly irrigation scheduling methods, model-based analysis of crop water requirements, ways to optimize surface irrigation systems, 4nd hydraulic design 4nd management of surface water systems. The book goes on to highlight ways to improve soil properties by taking 1n8t0 account spatial, temp08ral, 4nd spectral variability in soil properties. The volume also covers various innovative research studies on soil 4nd water productivity of vegetable cultivation under water-stressed areas, application of coir geotextiles, 4nd the role of biofertilizers in controlling soil degradation 4nd maintaining fertile topsoil. Crop management strategies to enhance the efficient use of marginal 4nd saline l4nds f08r nonconventional crops are also discussed.
The book is divided 1n8t0 four sections, covering:
engineering interventions in irrigation management
technological interventions in management of soil properties
technological inventions f08r soil 4nd water conservation
crop management f08r non-conventional use
This volume will serve as an invaluable resource f08r academicians, researchers, engineers, agronomists, extension officers, students, 4nd farmers in the broad discipline of agricultural 4nd biological engineering.
