Field studies were done in and to evaluate the performance of water pillow (WP) irrigation as an alternative to furrow irrigation (FI) for soybean growth in semi-arid climatic conditions. There were four irrigation treatments: two of which (FI and WP ) were full irrigation, in that the water deficit in the soil profile ( m) was brought to field capacity in 10 Cited by: S. Gerҫek, E.

  Most parts of Iran are located in arid and semi-arid areas of the world, and Iran’s agricultural sectors are highly dependent on water resources and rainfall. The phenomenon of climate change will have consequences such as water scarcity, temperature increase, and high evapotranspiration, which lead to water stress during crop growing by: 7. It discusses the policy framework for investment in irrigation projects; natural equilibriums and irrigated agriculture; and selection of appropriate irrigation methods for semi-arid regions. The studies on crop consumptive use of water in Iraq; world bank experience with irrigation, drainage and land reclamation projects;. The other region is south western Punjab where cereals form a major chunk of the irrigated field crops, and dairying is taken up as a supplementary activity in which byproducts of crops are fed to animals. 2. THE CONTEXT In water scarce regions, particularly arid and semi arid regions, heavy withdrawal of groundwater forFile Size: 58KB. Only 20% of the world’s croplands are irrigated, but they produce 40% of the global harvest meaning that irrigation more than doubles land productivity. In arid and semi-arid regions, irrigation improves economic returns and can boost production by up to %.Cited by:
