Titre : Promotion of Drip Irrigation in Sugar Beet Production in the semi-dry lands of Central Anatolia (Turkey)

Pays : Turquie

N° projet  : TUR/OP3/2/06/02

Durée : Start Date : 5/2006 End Date : 10/2007

Contexte
Turkey’s 1.3 million ha of wetlands has been degraded in the 20th century due to unsustainable water use and management practices specifically for irrigation. Traditional irrigation methods are wasteful, in addition, thirsty crops particularly sugarbeet consume much water than the other crops. Some practices indicate that transforming traditional irrigation system into modern system namely drip irrigation system in the sugarbeed production can save water up to 70%-80%.

Résumé du projet
The overall objective is to conserve soil, water and wetlands with sustainable agricultural practices (effective water use, fertilizers) in the semi-dry lands of Central Anatolia. The project aims to demonstrate and disseminate the experiences of the Kayseri Sugar Beet Cooperative in using drip irrigation for sugar beet production. The NGO has been actively involved in the demonstration of the activity since 2005 in their region, which is a regular land for cultivation of sugar beet. With the SGP project, the project aims to improve the existing drip irrigation systems, install newer and more effective ones based on the experiences of the previous year. The project envisages a wide campaign for the promotion of drip irrigation including preparation of booklets, brochures and a video film.
