Micro Irrigation Engineering for Horticultural Crops : Policy Options, Scheduling, and Design Hardback
Edited by Megh R. (University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez (Retired professor)) Goyal, Ajai (Central University of Jharkahnd, India) Singh
Part of the Innovations and Challenges in Micro Irrigation series
This book presents a variety of policy adoption methods, irrigation scheduling, and design procedures in micro irrigation engineering for horticultural crops.
The chapters range from policy interventions to applications of systems for different crops and under different land conditions.
Compiling valuable information and research, the book is divided into three main sections: Policy Options: Drip Irrigation Among AdoptersIrrigation Scheduling of Horticultural CropsDesign of Drip Irrigation SystemsThe editors present valuable research and information on micro irrigation methods in an effort to focus on innovation and evolving new paradigms for efficient utilization of water resources.
The adoption of micro irrigation systems can be a panacea for irrigation related problems and can help to increase the yield and area under cultivation, especially for small farmers without abundant technological resources. Micro Irrigation Engineering for Horticultural Crops: Policy Options, Scheduling, and Design will be valuable for agricultural engineering students, irrigation engineers, and scientists/professors in engineering.
