  • Computer aided decision making to use optimum water in safflower growing

    • Authors: Kerim Karadağ*
      Abstract: n plants, it is one of the important factors to provide ecological factors for productivity. Plants perceive the effects of environmental factors
      outside as stress and create appropriate physiological responses in their metabolism. Water stress is a type of abiotic stress and is one
      of the important factors affecting the growth and development of plants. Irrigation water management is very important for sustainable
      use of water resources. Therefore, support tools are becoming increasingly important in deciding irrigation. With the developments the
      technology, computerized support applications are usually used in agricultural areas. In the study, it is aimed to determine the effects of
      irrigation applications performed in different periods on yield quality and spectral reflections of safflower plant and to create applicable
      irrigation programs in safflower cultivation. From the reflections detained from safflower leaves by using spectroradiometer device, the
      determination of safflower plant according to water ratio different situations is done. Reflections are taken as three groups where the
      plants are grown at wavelengths of 325 nm to 1075 nm. Water due diligence related with safflower is consist of two stages. The first
      stage is the provision of the feature vector, the second stage is the classification of the feature vector related to data. As classification
      methods, support vector machine, k-nearest neighbor and decision tree are used. In comparison of three groups, the average value of
      the performance is high. As a result, considering the fallowed method and the procedure used, it is evaluated that such studies can be
      used in agriculture and cultivation.

  • Magnetic treatment of irrigation water: Its effect on water properties and
           characteristics of eggplant (Solanum melongena

    • Authors: Gottam Kishore, Chandrakant Saxena, Yogesh Rajwade
      Abstract: Poor quality water is a potential source for demand management in irrigated agriculture after essential treatment. Magnetic water treatment (MWT) is one of the emerging technologies among water treatment methods for the above-cited problems without harming the environment. The optimum configuration of the 7000 gauss magnetic treatment device and the effect of magnetized water on the yield parameters of the eggplant in a pot culture experiment were examined in this study. The maximum significant (P< 0.05) changes in physicochemical properties (pH, EC, total hardness, Langelier Saturation Index, Na, etc.) of water occurred at an optimized velocity of 0.8 m/s and less. The mean plant height was maximum under magnetized bore water treatment compared to all other treatments (P< 0.05). In particular, the average yield per plant was increased by 17 per cent in magnetized bore water treatment compared to the control. Overall, the results have shown that an optimum configuration of the water treatment device is needed before the start of the experiment based on magnetic strength. Moreover, magnetically treated irrigation water positively impacted plant growth parameters and the yield of the eggplant. Keywords: Irrigation, Magnetic water, Total hardness, Langelier Saturation Index, yield per plant

  • Irrigation water demand management to address water scarcity

    • Authors: Hassen Abdelhafid, Ines Gharb, Ahlem Maarouf
      Abstract: Improving irrigation water productivity is one of the most important ways to deal with water scarcity. Water pricing is considered a crucial tool for water demand management. This research aims atestimating the price elasticity of irrigation water demand in public and private areas of Nadhour using an Ordinary Least Squares regression (OLS). The paper assesses the economic performance of farming system and compares the value of marginal productivity (VMP) of irrigation water to the prices of water. A structured questionnaire and field visits were used to collect data from 140 farmers. Results show that irrigation water demand is less responsive to water price variation. Estimated elasticities are-0.69 and -0.44 respectively in the public and private schemes. The total irrigated area and farmers’ status are the most significant determinants of water demand. Results showed that water productivity in private farming systems is higher than recorded in public farming systemsand the VMP of irrigation water exceeds the prices paid for water

  • The development of instruments for farmers’ participation in water
           management in tidal lowlands using confirmatory factor analysis

    • Authors: Meitry Firdha Tafarin, Muhammad Yazid
      Abstract: Water user associations or farmer groups carry out water management on tidal land. In its management, the participation of farmers in the group is necessary. This study aimed to examine the indicators of participation that positively affect the sustainability of tidal agriculture. The variables used in this study are participation (5 indicators), leadership (5 indicators), attitude & understanding (4 indicators), and utilization & maintenance (4 indicators). The research locations were in the tidal area of Telang Karya and Telang Rejo Village. The number of samples in this study was 245 farmers. This study used confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) by building the model of first-order CFA and second-order CFA. Evaluation of the model was done by looking at the Goodness of Fit Indexes, namely chi-square (χ2), root mean square error of approximation (RMSEA), CFI, TLI, GFI, and AGFI. The research results on the second-order CFA resulted in a value of R2 = 137.414, and the model was a good fit. The results of the indicators analysis used were significant to be applied in tidal lowlands agriculture.

  • Nanotechnology for dryland agriculture water saving: Biodegradable
           hydrogel application in sweet corn (Zea mays saccharate Sturt) productio

    • Authors: Radian Radian, Budiyati Ichwan, Islah Hayat, Islah Hayat
      Abstract: This work aimed to determine the effect of biodegradable superabsorbent hydrogel based on cellulose derivatives on the growth and yield of sweet corn (Zea mays saccharata Sturt) on dry land. The design used was a completely randomized design (CRD). The applied treatments consisted of four levels of hydrogel: without hydrogel (control), 2, 4, and 6 g per plant, respectively. Each treatment was repeated six times in this experiment, yielding a total of 24 experimental pots. Each experiment pot contained 3 plants, thus all 72 plants. The results showed that the hydrogel would significantly increase soil moisture, relative water content, growth of the plant height, stem diameter, and ear cobs without corn husk. Likewise, on the length of the ear without ear cobs and wet ear weights without corn husk. As the hydrogel preserves soil moisture, allowing water to be available for the plant, it might also temporarily store soil from the water and gradually remove it into the soil. Further investigations should be performed to completely characterize the interaction between the superabsorbent hydrogel and the dry land soil.

  • Determination of water quality for irrigation at the entrance of Radoniqi
           accumulation with physicochemical and bacteriological parameters for the
           period of spring 2021

    • Authors: Naser Bajraktari, Arsim Elshani, Defrime Berisha
      Abstract: Water quality research for irrigation at the inlet of Radoniqi reservoir with physicochemical, heavy metals and bacteriological parameters was conducted in the spring quarter period 2021, focusing on two sampling points: at the entrance of the derivation canal (Lumbardhi River of Deçan) and at the exit of derivative canal (near the Lake) as the main supply point. In order to know the degree of its quality, the identification of polluting sources has been performed, which in turn will enable the necessary steps to be taken by the management of RWC ‘Gjakova’ for their isolation. Also, to complete the study, research was done on heavy metals and other nutrients, in all sampling sites, and especially where there are significant sources of surface water pollution, as a result of human activity and discharge of untreated urban waters. So, the focus or purpose of the research is to reflect the situation as realistically as possible and this was done by determining the bacteria by the membrane filter method by counting the colonies in Petri dishes with VRB-agar, M-Endo Agar Less, CCA.

  • Water compatibility of M’sila region (South- East Algeria) for
           cultivation of Spirulina & evaluation of methods of extraction of
           Phycocyanin and investigation of stability by β-Cyclodextrin

    • Authors: Salima Zidane, Hocine Bouleghlem, Abdallah Mohamed Seghir
      Abstract: Spirulina (Arthrospira platensis) is a microalga that has existed for more than three billion years. It belongs to the family of cyanobacteria. It
      is extraordinary, rich in nutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, and minerals. In addition, Spirulina is rich in phycocyanin,
      a blue protein pigment. It can be used as a dye in food, pharmacology, and cosmetics. Our work focused first on the compatibility of the
      waters of M’sila region (southeast Algeria) for the cultivation of Arthrospira platensis. Then, we evaluated several methods of extracting
      phycocyanin to be able to determine the optimal method in terms of yield. We have succeeded in developing a new extraction method
      coupled with maceration in a glycerol-water mixture with a molar ratio (8/2) assisted by ultrasound with a yield of 52.93 mg/g. The
      excellent results obtained may be due to the salinity of the waters of the region, to the used nutrient culture medium and/or the climate
      change of the region. We have formed an inclusion complex between phycocyanin and β-Cyclodextrin to keep it and make it more stable.

  • Physical and physicochemical characteristics of tomato fruits grown under
           different irrigation water levels and phosphorus sources and rates

    • Authors: Oswaldo Palma Lopes Sobrinho, Leonardo Nazário Silva dos Santos, Frederico Antonio Loureiro Soares
      Abstract: Phosphorus (P) is one of the most limiting nutrients for growth and development of crops, and is important for soil fertility managements, since it affects the quality of fruits. With the hypothesis that different levels of irrigation and phosphorus fertilization interfere in the physical and physicochemical properties of tomatoes, the objective of this experiment was to verify this hypothesis and analyze the behavior of the fruits’ responses. The experiment was conducted in a greenhouse at the Hydraulic and Irrigation Laboratory of the Federal Institute of Education, Science, and Technology of the State of Goiás, in Rio Verde, Goiás, Brazil. A randomized block design was used, with a 4×2×4 split-plot arrangement and three replications, totaling 96 experimental plots. The treatments consisted of four P2O5 rates: 25%, 50%, 100%, and 200% of the recommended rate; two P sources: monoammonium phosphate (MAP) and organo-mineral (OM); and four IWL: 50%, 75%, 100%, and 125% of the field capacity. The fruits were evaluated for longitudinal (FLD) and transversal (FTD) diameters, potential hydrogen (pH), titratable acidity (TA), total soluble solid (TSS) contents, and TSS to TA ratio (TSS/TA). The effect of the interactions between the factors IWL and P rate, IWL and P source, and P rate and source
      were significant for FLD and FTD, TSS, TA, and TSS/TA. The effects of the interactions between IWL and P rate, and IWL and P source were significant for pH. The MAP source combined with the rate of 25% and IWL of 125% resulted in tomato fruits with larger FLD and FTD. The rate of 25% combined with IWL of 77% and 100% resulted in tomato fruits with higher TSS and pH. The OM source resulted in tomato fruits with higher TA when combined with IWL of 50%, and larger FLD when combined with IWL of 105% and 125%.

  • Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) for Decentralized Grey Water Treatment:
           Technical, Ecological and Cost Efficiency Comparison for Domestic
           Applications

    • Authors: Naeema Al Hosani, Eihab Fathelrahman, Hamza Ahmed, Elfatih Rikab
      Abstract: The reuse of greywater has several advantages, including reduced freshwater extraction from rivers, aquifers, and groundwater; reduced
      need for desalination; less environmental impact from septic tanks and water treatment plants; decreased energy consumption; and reduced
      chemical pollution. The main objectives of this review study are to assess the technical attributes, ecological impacts, and cost-efficiency
      of Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) water treatment technology compared to similar available technology for small to medium-sized,
      decentralized applications in residential and commercial settings such as home gardening, sanitation, and landfills. Previous studies
      indicate that hybrid technologies such as MBBR are the most promising methods for the total removal of contaminants in wastewater in a
      decentralized setting. However, the initial capital cost of this technology for small and medium-scale domestic applications worldwide is
      high and so is a limiting factor in the expansion of its utilization. Expansion of domestic use of such Decentralized Wastewater Treatment
      Systems (DWTS) could increase the economies of scale and therefore reduce the initial capital costs for this useful water treatment. For
      the MBBR system, Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) removal efficiency was found to be 70%, Total Suspended Solids (TSS) removal
      was found to be 97%, and turbidity removal was 98%
