Irrigation, the addition of water to lands via artificial means, is essential to profit-able crop production in arid climates. Irrigation is also practiced in humid and sub-humid climates to protect crops during periods of drought. Irrigation is prac-ticed in all environments to maximize production and, therefore, profit by applying.

Irrigation Slide 10 Limited Irrigation • Reduce irrigated acreage – Grow primarily crops that use less water – Manage soils to capture and hold precipitation • Reduce irrigation water applied – Apply water as needed to obtain best economic returns – Delay irrigation until plants reach critical need for water • Water reuse – Reuse irrigation water prior to dischargeFile Size: KB.

Irrigation is the process of applying 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.

Irrigation is the the controlled application of water for agricultural purposes through manmade systems to supply water requirements not satisfied by rainfall. Crop irrigation is vital throughout the world in order to provide the world's ever-growing populations with enough food. Many different irrigation methods are used worldwide, including.

The Mediterranean climate makes it well suited to growing a variety of crops under both rain-fed and irrigated production. Therefore, to estimate irrigation water demand in the region it was necessary to first simplify the complex cropping pattern that exists and use representative crops for certain crop categories.

The effects of drip irrigation on the yield and crop water productivity responses of four tea (Camellia sinensis (L.) O. Kuntze) clones were studied four consecutive years (/–/), in a large (9 ha) field experiment comprising of six drip irrigation treatments (labelled: I 1 –I 6) and four clones (TRFCA PC81, AHP S15/10, BBK35 and BBT) planted at a spacing of m × 0 Cited by: 9.

Good nitrogen and irrigation management practices can reduce the probability of nitrate leaching into groundwater while maintaining profitable yields. Nitrogen (N) and irrigation management are complementary. Consequently, fields with low irrigation efficiency under tight nitrogen supplies will likely see N deficiency leading to reduced yields.Choice of crop varieties adaptable to the particular agro-climate, land situation, soil fertility, season and method of cultivation and benefiting to the cropping system.
