Transcript of "Introduction to the sustainable agricultural water management in cereal-based farming systems of northern Ghana project "

  1. 1. Introduction to the Sustainable Agricultural Water Management in Cereal-Based Farming Systems of Northern Ghana Project F. Kizito, R. Namara, C. Quansah, W. A. Agyare, E. Obuobie, and A. Danso International Water Management Institute (IWMI) Project Partner Meeting, Accra, Ghana 8 August 2012 1 Water for a food-secure world
  2. 2. Project Partners 2Water for a food-secure world
  3. 3. BackgroundWater for a food-secure world
  4. 4. Project Sites 4Water for a food-secure world
  5. 5. Work Program/Activites 5 Water for a food-secure world
  6. 6. Research designGroup 2 farmers Water for a food-secure world
  7. 7. Field instrumentation Pyranometer Anemometer Relative humidity Rain gauge and air temperature Trees and Shrubs Soil water content Echo Probes Data logger Maize Soya-beanSoil surface 20 cm 40 cm Neutron probe access tube 60 cm Water for a food-secure world
  8. 8. Water balance components Evapotranspiration (ET)  Compiling farm level data on soil water fate  Assess crop water productivity  Assess livestock water productivity  Evaluate system productivity TranspirationSoil evaporation Precipitation (P) Annual crop Transpiration Shrub Runoff (RO) Root Change in Infiltration uptake ΔSW profile storage Deep drainage Root uptake (DD) Gwup SW unaccounted Water table Water for a food-secure world
  9. 9. Outputs and Capacity Strengthening Water for a food-secure world
  10. 10. Project Budget Project budget details Prof. Charles Quansah and Dr. Agyare to present budget details on training to PL The PL and Dr. Obuobie will coordinate field exchange visits Partners budget funds are in the process of being transferred by the host institution Significant portion of budget was dedicated to field instrumentation Water for a food-secure world
  11. 11. Highlights of meeting with Prof. Charles Quansah  Explore possibilities of combining automated measurements with access tube measurements  For the training, after selecting community trainers i.e. trainer of trainees (AEAs); will have a community of practice  Would be most appropriate to do on-site for both Lawra and Tolon  Suggested dates 13-14 August then Lawra would be 30-31 August.  Contact District Directors Water for a food-secure world
