This new book, Sustainable Practices in Surface and Subsurface Micro Irrigation, offers a vast amount of knowledge and techniques necessary to develop and manage a drip/trickle or micro irrigation system. The information covered has worldwide applicability to irrigation management in agriculture.
Focusing on both subsurface and surface micro irrigation, chapters in the book cover a variety of new research and information on:
• Irrigation water requirements for tanier, vegetables, bananas, plantains, beans, and papaya
• Irrigating different types of soils, including sandy soils, wet soils, and mollisols
• New applications for micro irrigation using existing technology, such as meteorological instruments and MicroCAD
• Meteorological instruments for water management
This ﬁrst full-scale study of ancient Egyptian drawings reveals the signiﬁcant and varied contributions that drawing made to the world of Egyptian art. Because the Egyptian artist’s ideal was the achievement of a timeless reality, not individual artistic expression, preliminary drawings, by their very nature individual and spontaneous, assume a special significance in Egyptian art. Drawing formed the basis upon which the arts of wall painting, temple relief sculpture, and architecture were formed.
As countries face deteriorating water and environmental quality as well as water shortages, pollution control and the efficiency of water use become of paramount importance. Agriculture is one of the main nonpoint polluters of water bodies and irrigation for agriculture is one of the main consumers of water.
This new book, Principles and Practices of Sustainable Micro Irrigation, is the first in the new series on micro irrigation, which offers a vast amount of knowledge and techniques necessary to develop and manage a drip/trickle or micro irrigation system. Written by experienced scientists from various parts of the world, the chapters in this book offer basic principles, knowledge, and techniques of micro irrigation management, which are essential in designing, developing, and evaluating an agricultural irrigation management system.
Effective irrigation, enhanced pertinent technologies, thereby provides a most lucrative source for making agriculture profitable and worthwhile. This book has been written as a manual guiding agricultural engineers on the principles and concepts which define irrigation engineering.
