In this book, papers pertaining to resource management for sustainable agricultural development are presented in four parts divided into ten chapters. Part I discusses the usage of water and waste management for sustainable agricultural development including aspects like irrigation management to prevent soil and ground water salinization, production of solid fuel from oil palm waste, sustainable ecomaterials and biorefinery from agroindustrial waste, nonpoint pollution from agriculture and livestock activities on surface water....
Reliable and cost-effective monitoring will be an
important part of making GS a safe, effective, and
acceptable method for CO2 control. Monitoring will
be required as part of the permitting process for
underground injection and will be used for a number
of purposes, such as tracking the location of the plume
of injected CO2, ensuring that injection and abandoned
wells are not leaking, and verifying the quantity of
CO2 that has been injected underground.
Sodium concentration in
irrigation water replaces calcium by the process of Base Exchange, therefore reduces soil
permeability. Furthermore, excess salinity in groundwater used for irrigation decreased
plants osmotic activity and interfere water absorption and nutrients from the soil.
Nearly 5% of groundwater from the study site exceeds the desirable limit (1000 mg L-1) of
chloride. The natural source of chloride is due to the weathering of phosphate mineral
apatite present in granites.
If better management (BMP) was adopted in Vietnam there is evidence that the current trends and past environmental degradation can be stopped and even reversed, and shrimp production efficiency can be increased.
Limitations on the availabilityof water resourcesareamong the greatest challenges facing
modern society, despite the fact that roughly 70% of the earth’s surface is covered by water.
Human society depends on liquid freshwater resources to meet drinking, sanitation and hy‐
giene, agriculture, and industry needs.Roughly 97% of the earth’s surface and shallow sub‐
surface water is saline and about 2% is frozen in glaciers and polar ice.
