Crop and Food Supply Assessment Mission to Sudan, 15 February ). Grain sorghum, a well-adapted crop for central Sudan, is grown extensively under irrigated and dry.

The Soil-Plant-Air-Water (SPAW) model previously developed and tested was used to simulate soil water budgets and crop water-stress for sorghum in the dryland region of western Sudan.

The African countries are known to be the most vulnerable to climate change and variability and food insecurity. An effort is devoted in this study to assess the year-by-year drought risk to sorghum and millet during the onset of the growing season in the Sudanese Sahel.

A recently developed drought risk index (DRI) is used for this purpose. The DRI is a multiplicative formula of six variables Cited by:   Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. moench) is one of the crops that tolerate drought in stressed environments [1], and is an excellent model for drought tolerance in higher plants [2, 3].

This cereal has unusual and superior tolerance to excessive heat conditions [4], and produces reasonable grain yield in poor soils [5].Author: Ahmed M. El Naim, Sabah M.

Sudan - Irrigation Projects (English) Abstract. This report reviews, and evaluates the technical feasibility of irrigation in Sudan, namely as it regards the implementation of the Managil, and Roseires Projects.

Regarding the Managil Project, based on the capital cost of construction through stages. BACKGROUND: In general, rain‐fed agriculture is practised in many areas in western Sudan. Therefore, it is imperative to adopt appropriate rainwater harvesting and reuse technique(s) by promoting soil and water management research to sustain crop productivity.

Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L.) is a primary stable crop of Sudan. Key to the project was creating water conservation structures, in this case a water pond, to supplement irrigation to usually rain-dependent crops. The latter include sorghum, fodder, Arabic gum trees, and sunflowers and maize.

Already, sorghum yields have risen significantly, with an increase to 1, kg/ha from a base average yield of kg/ha. Under normal conditions, the annual total virtual water demand of sorghum (the dominant food crop in Sudan) is found to be 15 km3, of which 91% is green water. During a dry year, however, Sudan could experience a deficit of km3 of water, necessitating the adoption of a wise food stocking-exporting policy.

Country: Sudan Direct Beneficiaries: Small farmers, livestock keepers Results: • The number of farmers who adopted the water-harvesting technique totaled 3, • Average sorghum productivity increased up to eleven-fold, from 77 to. The plant serves safe drinking water to the inhabitants of Wau and has acted as an essential preventative measure against Cholera outbreaks.

UNICEF South Sudan//Kealey Raw water is pumped from the Jur river, (approximately 6, m3 per day) to the water treatment plant to serve communities in the town and the surrounding areas. urgent need for substantial improvements and extensions to the sewerage systems treatment plants.

Further development of water resources for agriculture and domestic use is one of the priorities to Sudan, water resources development, community water supply, effective water-supply Western Kordofan 15 The supply of water to Khartoum, Sudan, is from wells tapping aquifers in the Nubian Sandstone Formation.

The boreholes are located in residential areas where sewage disposal is by means of a siphon septic tank system draining into the water table in the upper alluvial deposits.

The aquifers are leaky to unconfined in nature and as the lower groundwater moves from the Nile towards the. This is due to the expansion of mechanized agriculture in the rainlands of Central, Eastern and Western Sudan, the introduction of new improved varieties and the recent severe drought.

Efforts to collect and utilize the genetic resources of vegetable started in the mids, led by individual plant breeders. Saqadi Village Water Plant. It is worth mentioning that QC had already established a water plant in Saqadi, Ad-Damir in Sudan, in partnership with Qatar Red Crescent and Islamic Dawa Orgaization at a cost of more than 3, QR.

20, people benefit directly from this water plant. This stress occurred just prior to the boot stage for sorghum at 60 to 68 days after planting.

Crop water use, averaged over all treatments, was mm for corn and mm for sorghum. For corn, plant population did not influence grain yield and crop water use.

Water use efficiency ranged from to kg m For sorghun1, there was no. The project which started on Septem assisted South Sudan Urban Water Corporation (SSUWC) and its Urban Water Stations (UWC) in Wau and Maridi, work towards achieving long- term sustainability by adopting policies and practices based on commercial principles.

To collaborate with the Western Sudan Agricultural Research Project Thus, farmers gain three advantages by planting sorghum in their sesame fields: 1) it serves as a food source for humans; 2) it serves as animal fodder; and 3) it serves as a wind break for sesame plants.

A newly restored water treatment plant in one town is making a real difference in people's lives. BENTIU, South Sudan, 5 September – Imagine having to fetch water from a river every day and it taking more than an hour each time. Nonconventional Water Resources. Prior to the introduction of UNICEF’s small bore hand pumps, villagers in western Sudan used to store water in the hollowed trunks of giant baobab trees (Adansonia digitata).In many other parts of the country, water is collected and stored in haffirs, a crude form of water harvesting for domestic, pastoralist and animal use in Darfur and Kordofan.

The Project for Improvement of Water Supply System in Juba. Juba - Fewer people in Juba, South Sudan's growing capital city, will suffer from water-borne diseases like typhoid due to lack of clean and safe water after the construction of an additional water treatment plant through a Japanese Government Grant Aid Project.

from to tons per hectare. Sorghum is more water-smart compared with maize and other cereals due to higher production from little available rainfall (Fig. This paper aims to discuss improvement of water use efficiency by planting sorghum, which has the. regional sorghum production is dominated by Ethiopia and Sudan, South Sudan’s sorghum imports come from Sudan and Uganda, with the latter only beginning to export sorghum a few years ago.

According to FEWS NET, although South Sudan’s cereal deficit is not large relative to regional supply, its relatively small population is the least self-suf. — test crop responses to water and nutrients in relation to crop sequence and surface management in field experiments using nuclear techniques, — promote collection of minimum sets of data in all experiments, store the data in a common data base, test and apply simulation models and use the data and models in training national staff.

There are two sewerage treatment plants. The only functioning plant treats a fraction of Khartoum’s old neighbourhoods. It was originally a trickling filter system. The effluents were subsequently diluted and used to irrigate the Green Belt, a 7,feddan eucalyptus plantation to the south of the city.

Agriculture in Sudan plays an important role in that country's lture and livestock raising are the main sources of livelihood for most of the Sudanese population. It was estimated that, as of80 percent of the labor force were employed in that sector, including 84 percent of the women and 64 percent of the men.

Currently, 98% of this region is still covered in Amazon rainforest and mangrove forest. The largest of the proposed biofuel plants — Larivot in Cayenne, the French Guiana capital — would require betw andmetric tons of soy per year to generate enough liquid biofuel to power the megawatt plant. The ICRC responded to this humanitarian situation by installing an emergency water treatment plant in Lologo.

This plant produces overlitres of clean water per day and delivers it to displacement sites and health facilities. The facility is a vital lifeline that helps to counter the spread of.
