Variability of surface water resources and extreme flows under climate change conditions in arid and mediterranean area: Case of Tensift watershed, Morocco | JBES

JBES Climate change, 19,12,2018By: Mohamed El Mehdi Saidi

Abstract

Within the context of climate change and increasing demographic pressures, problems of water resources variability have become particularly crucial. The management of arid watersheds, which are highly exposed to droughts and floods, needs to be supported by a thorough understanding of their susceptibility to these hazards. The watershed of Tensift in Morocco includes a high mountainous area and a large alluvial plain. Continue reading

The production capacity of intercropped model of maize (Zea mays) with black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) | IJAAR

IJAAR Robinia pseudoacacia 19,12,2018By: Jiangbo Hai

Abstract

A study was conducted to investigate the intercropping of legumes with cereals in different space as an approach to improve the soil nutrient content, the forage quality and the yield of cereals. Black locust was cultivated alone and intercropped with maize as follows: 2 rows maize to 2 rows Black locust (2M2R), 2 rows maize to 4 rows Black locust (2M4R), 2 rows maize to 6 rows Black locust (2M6R); 4 rows maize to 2 rows Black locust (4M2R), 4 rows maize to 4 rows Black locust (4M4R), 4 rows maize to 6 rows Black locust (4M6R) and 6 rows maize to 2 rows Black locust (6M2R), 6 rows maize to 4 rows Black locust (6M4R), 6 rows maize to 6 rows Black locust (6M6R).

Development of an optimum irrigation scheme using least-cost path analysis and digital elevation modeling | IJAAR

IJAAR Irrigation 18,12,2018By: Aaftab Ahmad

Abstract

Irrigation suffices crop water requirements for optimum crop production in arid regions. It consumes about 72% of available fresh water in the world while contributing 40% of the world food supply. As the global population increasing rapidly and the available fresh water per capita is decreasing, so scarce natural resources (such as land and water) must be used wisely. Continue reading

Seed pre-treatment effect on seedling emergence, chlorophyll content and plant weight of dill under salt stress | JBES

JBES Dill 17,12,2018By: Kazem Ghassemi-Golezani

Abstract

A factorial experiment with three replications on the bases of randomized complete block design was conducted in 2015 at the Greenhouse of the university of Tabriz, to investigate the effects of different seed pre-treatments (Control, 1 mM GA3 and SA and polymer seed coating) on seedling emergence, chlorophyll content and plant weight of dill (Anethum graveolens L.) under different levels of NaCl salinity (0, 4, 8 and 12 dS/m).

Evaluation of NERICA rice mutant in Jhum cultivation | IJAAR

IJAAR Jhum cultivation 17,12,2018By: Sushan Chowhan

Abstract

Jhum cultivation of rice is an ancient practice of the tribal people living in the hill tracts of Bangladesh. They can grow rice only once a year in the Aus season. Most of the varieties are traditional which are low yielding and long duration (140-160 days). Continue reading
