Abstract Due to the increasing demand for food and fiber by its ever-increasing population, the pressure on fresh water resources of Pakistan is increasing. Optimum utilization of surface and groundwater resources has become extremely important to fill the gap between water demand and supply. At Lahore, Pakistan 18 lysimeters, each 3.05 m × 3.05 m × 6.1 m deep were constructed to investigate the effect of shallow water tables on crop water requirements. The lysimeters were connected to bottles… Expand
CONTRIBUTION OF GROUND WATER TABLE ON MAIZE YIELD AND IRRIGATION REQUIREMENTS IN NORTH NILE DELTA
Due to the increasing demand of food by its ever-increasing population, the pressure on fresh water resources of Egypt is increasing. Optimum utilization of surface and groundwater resources hasExpand
Effect of different saline groundwater depths and irrigation water salinities on yield and water use of quinoa in lysimeter
Water scarcity and water salinity are major constrains for agricultural production in arid and semi-arid regions of Iran. Salt tolerant and high nutritious crop, quinoa, has been introduced allExpand
Effects of shallow water tables on the water use and yield of winter wheat ( Triticum aestivum L.) under rain-fed condition
TLDR
The water table contribution should be recognized as the predominant source of evapotranspiration when water table was very shallow ( � 150 cm), and the irrigation and drainage system should be managed to maximize the WUE and yield of winter wheat by controlling water table at desired depth. Expand
Effects of the shallow water table on water use of winter wheat and ecosystem health: implications for unlocking the potential of groundwater in the Fergana Valley (Central Asia).
This paper analyzes the effect of the shallow water table on water use of the winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) that has replaced alfalfa (Medicago sativa) on the irrigated lands of the FerganaExpand
Modeling contribution of shallow groundwater to evapotranspiration and yield of maize in an arid area
TLDR
The Agricultural Water Productivity Model for Shallow Groundwater (AWPM-SG) for calculating capillary fluxes from shallow groundwater using readily available data combines an analytical solution of upward flux from groundwater with the EPIC crop growth model to save more water in areas with shallow groundwater.

Effect of deficit irrigation and different saline groundwater depths on yield and water productivity of quinoa
Water scarcity and salinity are two important limitations for agricultural production. Interaction effects of deficit irrigation and shallow groundwater on crop water use could increase waterExpand
EFFECT OF GROUNDWATER LEVEL DEPTH AND IRRIGATION AMOUNT ON WATER FLUXES AT THE GROUNDWATER TABLE AND WATER USE OF WHEAT
Three irrigation water regimes (90.0, 67.5, and 45.0 mm) and five groundwater table depths (1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, and 3.5 m) were considered in a lysimeter experiment to investigate the effect ofExpand
Deficit irrigation enhances contribution of shallow groundwater to crop water consumption in arid area
Agricultural water conservation is important in arid and semi-arid areas where water resources are deficient and agriculture irrigation accounts for a high proportion of water use. Thus, efficientExpand
Shallow groundwater plays an important role in enhancing irrigation water productivity in an arid area: The perspective from a regional agricultural hydrology simulation
Abstract Agricultural water productivity (WP) is an important indicator to evaluate the implementation of agricultural water saving in arid regions. However, the role of groundwater capillary rise toExpand
Reciprocal influence of crops and shallow groundwater in sandy landscapes of the Inland
In regions with shallow water tables, ground water may have a positive (water supply) or negative (waterlogging or salinization) impact on crops. Reciprocally, crops can influence ground water,Expand
