Water Conservation Strategies in Crop Production Systems

With more crop residue soil water evaporation is tempered because less solar energy reaches the soil surface and wind speed (air movement) is reduced at the soil surface Long term reduced tillage or no-till leads to better soil structure less soil crusting greater infiltration and less runoff More residue especially standing residue means more snow trapping thus storing more water

Project DOMO

A solar dryer is an active construction that dries and dehydrates fruits and vegetables more efficiently and sanitary than drying foods in the open sun Dried produce is a great solution to the problems at hand because it provides the option of conservation Preserving foods could battle the hunger that must be overcome during the lean seasons Not only that but dried fruits and vegetables

Farm solar energy opps expand in Ohio

Solar energy reduces volatility of future energy costs has low maintenance costs and positive environmental attributes and once the initial capital investment is recovered the energy is free " Romich and his Energize Ohio program have put together some amazing resources for both food and livestock farm solar systems in Ohio

Sun Power: Possibilities and politics

Prof Gene C Shove of the Agriculture Engineering Department at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is investigating the application of solar energy to crop drying In October and November when crops are dried Shove notes we're not too bad off we do not have the sunshine here in Illinois that we have in the Southwest but we get a lot of sunshine and we think we can

Concentrated solar drying of tomatoes

Concentrated solar drying of tomatoes the humid air's reduced capacity to absorb moisture from the drying fruits using a solar crop dryer coupled with a solar concentrator helps to improve the drying rate by increasing internal dryer temperature and radiation Today large-scale mechanized dryers are often used to dry fruits in industrialized countries These machines force air heated by

Organic Farming Manual

The other technologies examined in this chapter (solar crop driers solar distillation absorption refrigerators solar ponds and solar thermal power systems) although not nearly so widely applicable as energy-efficient buildings can all make a positive social and environmental contribution locally Although solar ponds collect large quantities of salt they are only likely to be used in
