ABOUT THE BOOK 

FUNDAMENTALS OF IRRIGATION AND ON-FARM WATER MANAGEMENT VOLUME - 1

AUTHOR : M H ALI

PUBLISHERS : SPRINGER PUBLICATIONS

         The book is designed to cover the major fields of agricultural and environmental engineering such as weather, plant, soil, water, and basics of on-farm water management. The book will be quite useful for the students of agricultural engineering. Students of other related branches of engineering sciences, and engineers working in the field and at research institutes will also be benifited. The book may serve as a text book for the students and as a practical hand-book for the practitioners and researchers in the field of irrigation and on-farm water management. Utilization of the recent literature in the area and citation of relevant journals / reports have added a special value to this book. Considering the topics covered, engineers, scientists, practitioners, and educators will find this book as a valuable resource. 

         This comprehensive and compact presentation of the book will serve as a text book for undergraduate students in Agricultural Engineering, Biological Systems Engineering, Bio-Science Engineering, Water Resource Engineering, and, Civil & Environmental Engineering. It will also be helpful for the students of relevant fields such as Agronomy, Biological Sciences, Meteorology, Ecology and Hydrology. Although the target audience of the book is undergraduate students, post-graduate students will also be benefited from the book. It will also serve as a reference manual for field engineers, researchers and extension workers working in the above mentioned fields. 

          Water is the scarcest resource. Importance of judicious use of water in agricultural sector for sustaining agricultural growth and to retard environmental degradation needs no elaboration. Judicious use of water for crop production requires knowledge of weather, soil, crop, water quality, and drainage situation. Increasing efficiency in conveyance and pumping systems also are of great concerns. Irrigation management strategy practiced in normal soils may not appropriate in problematic soils such as saline soils and drought prone areas. It is also utmost important to pay attention to the economics in production system and all aspects of supply & demand management of water. This book covers all of the above aspects. In addition, the book covers some recent dimensions such as pollution from agricultural fields, modeling in irrigation & water management, and application of geographical information system (GIS) in irrigation & water management.
