The department of equipment and technology of irrigation began to function in 1978 and is the legal successor of several laboratories: improvement of irrigation technology; programming of crop yields; irrigation of steep slopes, operation of irrigation systems protection of water resources, sector regime and technique of irrigation of citrus crops.
The main direction of the department’s research is the improvement of irrigation technology and programming the yield of agricultural crops. The Irrigation Technique and Technology Department is currently carrying out scientific research in the following areas:
-Improvement of crop irrigation technologies with elements of crop programming.
– Development and implementation of water-saving technology for irrigation of agricultural crops.
-Development of technology for irrigation of crops on steep slopes.
-Development of optimal regimes and technologies for irrigation of agricultural crops with various methods of irrigation (furrow, drip, sprinkler, subsoil).
