A GIS‑based approach for up‑scaling capillary rise from field to system level under soil–crop–groundwater mix
Capillary rise represents an often neglected fraction of the water budget that contributes to crop water demand in situations of shallow groundwater levels. Such a situation is typical in irrigated areas of Central Asia ...
Beyond the state order? Second crop production in the Ferghana Valley, Uzbekistan
After independence in 1991, Uzbekistan introduced a policy on food security and consequently reduced the irrigated area allocated to cotton and increased the area of winter wheat. Shifting to winter wheat allowed farmers ...

Adopting Evapotranspiration-based Irrigation Scheduling for Cotton Growing in Fergana Valley to Improve Water-use Efficiency
Geostatistical monitoring of soil salinity in Uzbekistan by repeated EMI surveys
Soil salinization in the lower reaches of Amudarya is a constant threat. High seepage losses in irrigation water delivery network and deteriorated drainage network result in rising groundwater tables. The shallowgroundwater table ...
