Trickle irrigation systems’ efficiency depends on system uniformity, which is determined by water discharge uniformity from emitters. It is impossible to produce 2 identical emitters due to manufacturing variations. The manufacturer’s coefficient of variance is used as a measure of discharge variations of emitters. In this study, manufacturers’ reported(More)
The effect of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) colonisation by Glomus clarum on fruit yield and water use efficiency (WUE) was evaluated in watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) cv. Crimson Sweet F1 under field conditions. Treatments were: (1) well-watered plants without mycorrhizae (WW-M), (2) well-watered plants with mycorrhizae (WW+M), (3) water- stressed plants(More)
An outdoor pot experiment was carried out in sand culture to investigate the response of spinach (Spinacia oleracea ) cv. “Matador” grown at high salinity to supplementary phosphorus and potassium. Plants were tested during a period from germination to vegetative growth stage. Treatments initiated for seedling and more matured vegetative growth stages were(More)
The effects of water deficit on plant growth, physiology and dry matter accumulation in the eggplant (Solanum melongena L. cv., Teorem F1) grown in pot were studied under out door conditions. Water stress was imposed by irrigating the plants with 80%, 60% and 40% of water needed to reach pot capacity (PC) in the soil. Control plants were irrigated 100% of(More)
The Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) model and the Agricultural Non-Point-Source Pollution Model (AGNPS) were used in conjunction with a geographic information system (GIS) database to predict runoff and sediment discharges for Rock Creek watershed, an agricultural watershed in Ohio, USA. Observed and predicted values were compared for selected storm(More)
In 2005 and 2006, a study was conducted to determine the effect of subsurface and surface drip irrigation systems and to determine optimum irrigation water using six different irrigation levels imposed on muskmelon (Cucumis Melo L. cv. Ananas F1) under semi-arid climatic conditions. Irrigation treatments received 0, 25, 50, 75, 100, and 125% of class A pan(More)
A study was conducted to determine the water stress effect on yield and some physiological parameters including crop water stress index for drip irrigated second crop watermelon. Irrigations were scheduled based on replenishment of 100, 75, 50, 25, and 0% soil water depletion from 90 cm soil depth with 3-day irrigation interval. Seasonal crop(More)
A study was conducted at the department of Agricultural Structure and Irrigation, Harran University, Sanliurfa, Turkey, to determine the effect of increased irrigation water temperature at various irrigation system pressures on emitter flow rate, lateral elongation, and Standard Flow Rate Index for six different brands of drip laterals. Test materials(More)
This study was conducted to determine the effect of different supplemental irrigation rates on chickpea grown under semiarid climatic conditions. Chickpea plots were irrigated with drip irrigation system and irrigation rates included the applications of 0 (I 0) 25 (I 25), 50 (I 50), 75 (I 75), 100 (I 100), and 125 % (I 125) of gravimetrically measured soil(More)
