Irrigation and land use management to ensure resilience under drought and scarcity risks
Introduction In southern Europe, the economic and environmental sustainability of agriculture is highly dependent on adequate land and water management. Hydrological conditions of the soil and irrigation processes are thus key  ...

Climate change adaptation options for Mediterranean irrigated croplands
Introduction In the Mediterranean region, intensive agriculture is usually associated with irrigation due to the mismatch between the rain season and the growing season, and the strong inter-annual variability of rainfall. Clim ...

Soil texture determination: comparison of different methods
The classical soil texture determination is done by sieving and sedimentation analysis. As a large part of the scientific literature in which soil texture is related to soil functioning is based on soil texture as measured with th ...

Assessing the effectiveness of climate change adaptation strategies on soil erosion
Many studies show that soil erosion will increase under climate change, because of the expected increase in extreme precipitation. Adaptation strategies are needed to prevent wide-scale land degradation of agricultural fields, but ...

Analysis of near future demands for sprinkling irrigation in Brabant
Groundwater levels in parts of Brabant are declining, which affects brooks and nature reserves. In this research satellite data and soil moisture measurements are combined to analyse the regional groundwater systems. An important  ...

The Argentina case: land use drives groundwater and flooding issues
During the latest years Argentina is hit by floods which cannot be explained by climate change alone. Analyses at a national scale indicate land use changes as a main contributor to increasing groundwater levels. Research has a fo ...

Evaluating environmental and crop contamination risks of sub-surface irrigation with treated wastewater
Sub-surface irrigation (SSI) of crops may be done with water of marginal quality, such as the effluent of wastewater treatment plants (WWTP), in order to conserve freshwater. Such water contains contaminants that WWTPs are unable  ...

SWAP-WOFOST models for water management scenarios in Argentina
Water is a very important production factor in agriculture. Due to the changing climate in Argentina, drought and flooding will occur more often. This can have far-reaching consequences for farmers, the food processing industry an ...

Innovation in microplastic measurement: Method improvement and validation
Introduction Microplastic particles are found in all environments. The detection of microplastics in a diversity of substrates is needed to understand the transport processes from one environment to another. Quantification and id ...

Flevoland: Water, rotation, long-term sustainable soil management
Methodology: Experimental analysis, and if you are fast: fieldwork this summer in Lelystad. Research question: Different soil management systems were compared in a longterm field experiment. In addition to crop yields, o ...
