Title: water intake characteristics of soils in Jamila Villa farm, Minna, Niger State
Authors: POPOOLA A, STEPHEN
Issue Date: 29-Jul-2013
Abstract: This project report presents the water intake characteristics of soils in Iamila Villa farm, Minna, Niger State. The Gravimetric and infiltration test was performed in three different conditions of the soil. That is tilled, untilled and compacted soil. Double ring infiltrometer was used to study the infiltration characteristics of the soil on the farm and Horton's equation was adopted for the data analysis. From the analysis of data obtained the soil characteristics constant K was obtained for the tilled, non-tilled and compacted plots of the farm as; 0.038, 0.020 and 0.023. The soil intake characteristic equation of the farm for all the three conditions of the soils were calculated to be; f = 9.0 + 111e-o.o38t ~ f = [.56 -I- 74.04e- l),020t and f = 4.44 + 30.72e-o..-023t. The cumulative infiltration Depth equation of soils are; [F = 9.0t + 2921.05[1_e-Q·G38e], [F=1.56t + 3702[1_e-O.020t] and [F=4.44t+1335.65[1-e-o.o23tl This study enable the comparison of the parameters obtained from all the soil conditions of the location and the result will guide the farmer in designing a good and workable irrigation system in the future. The equations derived for all conditions in this site are used to attain an efficient condition of the farm site.
