Mekong River, the 11th largest river in the world, is the main water source for irrigation, fishery,
and domestic use… In short, the living of the whole population in the Mekong Delta (MD) is depending and will be depended on this resource. The MD of Vietnam is located at the most downstream part of the Mekong river basin. With a
population of 17 million inhabitants living in 4 million hectares of land, the MD has great
potentials for agricultural production. The MD is the most important agricultural production
region for the whole country.
This paper identifies five water environmental problems in the Delta that are the principal limiting factors of agricultural production and human health, i.e. (i) the salinity intrusion in the coastal areas, (ii) the effect of acid sulfate soils, (iii) the polluted water from human activities, (iv) the fresh water shortage in the dry season and (v) the flood in the rainy season. The discussion and conclusion present the people’s adaption strategies and water gorvernance issues in pursing sustainable management in the region.......
In the early years of the 20th century, Buon Ma Thuot people chose a flat place to settle. The six-road
junction constitutes a convergence point of many intermingled roads connecting the residential areas of
the Kinh with the villages of the E De and the road to the midland region. These red-soil roads used to be
muddy in the rainy season and dusty in the dry season

5 Preparing the site
The best site for a garden
The best sites for a garden are located: 1 Near a water supply (well, stream, pool). In the dry season the crop needs watering. Sometimes you may have to have two gardens, one for the dry season, located near a well or by the side of a lake or pool
The Mekong River system supports one of the world’s largest and most diverse inland
fisheries. It includes a broad assortment of operations, ranging from solitary fishers to largescale
commercial enterprises. The catch contains a high proportion of fishes whose lifecycles
involve migrations between feeding and spawning grounds and dry season refuges.
The preservation of the river’s fisheries, therefore, partly depends on keeping the migration
routes these fish use free from obstructions and barriers that could critically disrupt their lifecycles.
As a major rice exporter worldwide, the quality of rice has become a central issue for farmers in Vietnam, especially in the rainy harvest season. Therefore, it is important to dry the rice as quickly as possible to prevent damage but maintain quality. Conventional drying techniques such as flat bed dryers can take up to 8 hours (or more) to dry the moisture rice to safety. High-temperature drying can allow the rice to dry more quickly, so space and time taken to dry the rice can be shorter nhieu.Nghien agricultural science...
During dry seasons when the surface water disappears and the vegetation dries up, camels
have to be watered from subterranean sources such as man made water holes, old wells
etc. In highly arid areas as in Eastern Africa, watering camels in dry season is a very time
consuming and arduous job since water has to be lifted bucket by bucket from several
metres deep wells.
Water requirements of camels, although low in comparison to other livestock species, are
still quite high in absolute terms. At the height of the dry season, when the ambient
temperatures are high and the vegetation is dry, an adult camel needs approximately 80 to
100 litres of water every five to seven days. If the pasture consists mainly of halophytic
plants and/or the available water is rich in minerals, the requirement will increase. It will
also increase in lactating animals. A herd of 100 camels during the dry season might
require as much as 10,000 litres of water three...
Energy is important for the existence and development of humankind and is a key issue
in international politics, the economy, military preparedness, and diplomacy. To reduce
the impact of conventional energy sources on the environment, much attention should be
paid to the development of new energy and renewable energy resources. Solar energy,
which is environment friendly, is renewable and can serve as a sustainable energy source.
Hence, it will certainly become an important part of the future energy structure with the
increasingly drying up of the terrestrial fossil fuel.
A study was carried out at the experimental animal husbandry farm in Can Tho University form October 2005 to March 2006. Water sampling was taken at the high and low tidal in the wet season and dry season. The results showed that water environment of the experimental farm is severely polluted. The average organic amount (COD), hydrogen sulfide, N-NH4+ and total Coliform were 878.9 mg/L, 32 mg/L, 70.4 mg/L and 2.78*105 MPN/100 mL respectively.
This study investigates impacts of climate change on water resource in the Huong River basin in the Central Vietnam. Hydrological responses of six climate change scenarios were calculated. Results reveal that climate change would cause significant increase in rainfall in wet season resulting in an increase in river flow. By contrast, the decreasing trend of river flow in dry season is a consequence of the decline of rainfall and increase of evapotranspiration under most scenarios. Sea level rise coupled with the lowering of river stages may exacerbate salinity intrusion.
The idea of producing this book resulted
from several realizations for the editors in
1997. The first was an awareness that a large
body of biological research from major regions
of Costa Rica was available in the literature. In
particular, extensive research had been carried
out on the lowland Atlantic wet forest, the middle
elevation cloud forest (1,400–1,800 m), and
the lowland Pacific dry forest over a period of
about 30 years. Further, the wet forest had just
received a comprehensive biological review by
McDade et al.
As a country which contains significant concentrations of population in fragile mountain eco-
systems, expanding arid zones, various regions which are subject to periodic flooding, increasing
deforestation and environmental degradation and high levels of poverty, Bolivia is particularly
vulnerable to climate change. Its damaging impact can be seen in a range of phenomena such as
increasingly severe and frequent flooding and landslides and the accelerated melting of tropical
Electrification of workers' villages is strongly recommended. Water supplies from a
single surface source for the whole development including the oi l palm mil l and from
strategically sited groups of tube wells have been costed. An emergency system of suit-
ably capped shallow wells is provided near each estate workers' village.
CAMDEV has its own source of seed for improved planting material.
Land clearing is expected to be done mechanically, the technique being similar to that
at present used by CAMDEV for rubber. Trees are pushed over, raked into windrows
and burnt. On the Boa Plain an effective burn wil l be essential to facilitate drain
excavation. This may be difficul t with the heavy rainfalls and short dry season. The
timing of the clearing operations wil l be important. Felling one dry season and wind-
rowing and burning the next may help, as may the use of flame-throwing equipment
and fans to ignite the windrowed debris properly. Some pre-clearing drainage may also...
Organochlorine pesticide residue were determined in sediments collected from three estuary zones fowarding Tam Giang - Cau Hai Lagoon, Thua Thien Hue, Vietnam during the dry season in 2005. A total of 10 sediment samples were collected at the river estuaries and along the lagoon.
During the early years, you can give your child a foundation of healthy nutrition and good eating habits. At age one, your child tolerates pretty much everything adults eat, although with less seasoning, well-done, cut into small pieces, and not too dry. After their incisors appear, they start to get molars and their digestive systems are ready to engage life.
The large amount of water required for the production of plant substance is taken from the soil by the roots. Leaves and stems do not absorb appreciable quantities of water. The scanty rainfall of dry-farm districts or the more abundant precipitation of humid regions must, therefore, be made to enter the soil in such a manner as to be readily available as soil-moisture to the roots at the right periods of plant growth.
In humid countries, the rain that falls during the growing season is looked upon, and very properly, as the really effective factor in the production of large...
To determine post-harvest losses mainly due to the fact cracked rice, the data were collected systematically based on real farmers and also by experimentations in two seasons (wet 2006, dry 2007). 2007 wet season experiments are being pursued today. The main factors considered in this study during data collection are:
• Harvest time before and after the seeds mature
• Harvesting methods manual, harvesters, combine harvesters
• drying method and cost-sun drying and mechanical drying
