Includes detailed, progressive examples for easy reference and a supporting spreadsheet (requires Microsoft Excel 97 or higher). irrigation management for vegetable production needs to be more careful. To avoid any accidental economic loss, before irrigating vegetable crops, irrigation water quality should be checked based on electrical conductivity with an appropriate salinity meter at least once a year, particularly in the near coastal areas. Vegetable growers may need toFile Size: KB.

Irrigation is the application of controlled amounts of water to plants at needed intervals. Irrigation helps to grow agricultural crops, maintain landscapes, and revegetate disturbed soils in dry areas and during periods of less than average rainfall. Irrigation also has other uses in crop production, including frost protection, suppressing weed growth in grain fields and preventing soil. region and irrigating efficiently. WHY PLANT TREES? Water and soil conservation Trees play a large role in water conservation as they intercept and store water. They stabilize soil with their extensive root systems, reducing soil erosion and runoff and thus improving water quality. Wooded areas conserve and naturally filter water,File Size: KB. Introduction. Micro-irrigation - applying small amounts of water slowly and frequently through emitters spaced along polyethylene tapes or tubing - makes it possible to apply water precisely where it is needed and to apply it with a high degree of uniformity, lessening both surface runoff - excess water running off the lower end of the field - and deep percolation - water flowing down through.
