Titre : El Oued sustainable water use for potato production project 2017 – 2019

Pays : Algérie

Dates : 1 July 2017 End date : 27 May 2020

Identification projet : NL-KVK-27378529-PVW4S17002

Programme : Partners for Water (PVW4) – Phase 2, 2016 – 2021

Présentation
A 5 ha demonstration farm will be set up and managed, over 4 growing seasons. The demonstration farm will be used to test and illustrate the innovative technique of underground fertigation and how it can contribute to more sustainable water use practices. The drip irrigation pipes – for this combination of irrigation and liquid fertilization – are integrated in the potato ridges by a tractor drawn machine, which at the same time throws the ridge and plants the seed potatoes in the ridges under the fertigation drip. New (climate smart) varieties will be tested and a local seed potato production/multiplication will be started. In the context of climate smart agriculture this project contributes to a) sustainable water use, b) food security and c) sustainable value chain development.
