      ASSESSMENT OF WATER QUALITY AND SOIL PROPERTIES FOR IRIGATION IN THE HORTICULTURAL CROPS PRODUCING AREAS OF ALHEGAINA, NORTH KORDOFAN STATE SUDAN ADAM HAMED MOHAMMED IBRAHIM A //09 A Thesis Submitted in Partial Fulfillment for the Award of the Degree of Master of Science (Land and Water . Irrigation salinity. Irrigation salinity is the rise in saline groundwater and the build-up of salt in the soil surface in irrigated areas. It is caused by using large volumes of irrigation water that locally raise groundwater levels and mobilise salt. Irrigation salinity is made worse when water used to irrigate is from salty sources.

      Recent reconnaissance soil surveys of proposed irrigation projects have revealed a belt of shallow soils overlying gypsum beds in the drier steppe zone of Northern Iraq. The soil profile consists of two sharply contrasting layers—upper layer of Mesopotamian Alluvium and a lower layer of highly gypseous material. The Riverina / r ɪ v ə ˈ r iː n ə / is an agricultural region of South-Western New South Wales (NSW), Riverina is distinguished from other Australian regions by the combination of flat plains, warm to hot climate and an ample supply of water for combination has allowed the Riverina to develop into one of the most productive and agriculturally diverse areas .

      There are over 90 different soil types mapped in the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area (MIA) and the Coleambally Irrigation Area (CIA). These soils have different properties that are important for the design and establishment of irrigation and farming systems and also for managing and sustaining existing farming systems. In 2, soil condition monitoring permanent sites were established or contributed towards a baseline to variously monitor soil carbon, structure, pH, salinity, coastal acid sulfate soils and sheet, gully and wind erosion across New South Wales, a state in South Eastern Australia (, km2). The background, design, site selection, field protocols and evaluation .

The most extensive areas of these soils are on the coastal plains or south-western Australia, southern Queensland, New South Wales, and the large sand islands of the southern Queensland coast.

Their coarse texture and poverty in all nutrients has caused them to. Geology and soils The bulk of irrigation development has taken place on the northern and southern alluvial plains of New South Wales.

Irrigation was developed much earlier on the southern plain and this area has been extensively studied in terms of geomorphology and soils.

Soil degradation is the decline in soil condition caused by its improper use or poor management, usually for agricultural, industrial or urban purposes. It is a serious environmental problem. Soils are a fundamental natural resource, and are the basis for all terrestrial life. The City of Griffith is central to the region, lying at the foothills of a low range of hills rising above the Murrumbidgee Valley.

Land to the East, South and West of Griffith is generally flat comprising traditional red/brown earths ranging from duplex soils in the horticultural areas to heavy cracking clays of the floodplain soils.

Australia – the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area. The Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area (MIA) is situated in the central New South Wales region of south-east Australia. Irrigation suitability studies were undertaken along the Murrumbidgee River in the s, with development taking place between and Bythere were farms in the MIA.

However, in the alkaline soils found in most areas of South, West and/or North Texas, lowering of the pH is very difficult. Irrigation in these areas creates a neutralizing affect due to the high CaCO3 levels normally present in the water.

Soil salinity is .In New South Wales, waterlogging and salinity cost irrigated agriculture an estimated $40 million a year. The key horticultural areas affected in New South Wales are the MIA, Murray Valley, Sunraysia Irrigation Area, Hunter Valley and small areas in the Sydney Basin and southern slopes around Young.Types of irrigation systems, irrigation drainage management plans, costs, soil water monitoring and irrigation scheduling.
