Features

  • explores the experiences and options of adopters and nonadopters of micro irrigation systems
  • looks at policy options for better implementation of micro irrigation systems
  • examines issues in irrigation and fertigation scheduling
  • discusses design of micro irrigation systems

Summary

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 Adopters
  • Irrigation Scheduling of Horticultural Crops
  • Design of Drip Irrigation Systems

The 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.
