Sustainable Practices in Surface and Subsurface Micro Irrigation (Research Advances in Sustainable Micro Irrigation) – 1st Edition ( 2014 )
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
