This chapter aims to describe and clarify the present irrigation and drainage management system and the actual water distribution and farmer behavior in the delta using case studies conducted at several sites in the middle delta covering the field, on-farm and basin levels.

The soil salinization problem in Egypt's Nile Delta and related policy issues are addressed in regards to the need to create water supplies for new irrigation projects by, for instance, re-use of irrigation drainage waters and limits on rice plantings, and at the same time improving the agricultural productivity of the Nile Delta through, for instance, subsurface drainage in water-logged.

Since the water resources in Egypt are limited and depend on the Nile river. Egypt water allocation is × 10 9 m 3 a year and with tremendous increase in the population, production has to be.

In addition, before reaching Egypt, the Nile passes through many countries that have their own needs for water. For this reason, Egypt may suffer from a severe water shortage in the future.

Egypt is trying to make effective use of the limited water resources available to continue providing its people with an enjoyable and prosperous life. The investigated area is a part of the newly reclaimed land in the Western Nile Delta, Egypt ().It locates in UTM zone 36 between Longitude: 29° 44′ to 30° 09′ E and Latitude: 30° 28′ to 30° 50′ N, and occupies km total land reclamation area in the whole Western Nile Delta region is around km 2 includes km 2 reclaimed areas before (Bakr et al., ).

Rice is typically grown in bunded fields that are continuously flooded up to 7−10 days before harvest. Continuous flooding helps ensure sufficient water and control weeds. Lowland rice requires a lot of water. On average, it takes 1, liters of water to produce 1 kg of rice in.

Rice is one of the world’s significant food crops, especially in Egypt. The distribution data of planted and harvested paddy rice fields are essential for food security and the management of water resources.

The determined area within agricultural associations is often subjective, expensive, labor intensive, time-consuming, and prone to errors.

Therefore, this study aimed to determine the. Marmar Mabrouk, Andreja Jonoski, Gualbert H. Oude Essink and Stefan Uhlenbrook, Impacts of Sea Level Rise and Groundwater Extraction Scenarios on Fresh Groundwater Resources in the Nile Delta Governorates, Egypt, Water, /w, 10, 11, (), ().

In the Nile Delta, a complex network of canals collects drainage water from surface‐irrigated fields but also from municipal wastewater.

The goal of this work was to assess the technical, environmental, and financial feasibility of the upgrade of a drainage canal (DC) into either an in‐stream constructed wetland (ICW) or a canalized facultative lagoon (CFL), in order to produce a water. This paper provides the methodology and results of a cross-scale diagnostic performance assessment program of the irrigation water management in the old lands of the Nile Delta of Egypt.

The analysis was done at three levels; main canal level, branch canals level and on-farm level of the Meet Yazid command (82, ha) for the year – to highlight areas for improvement. Abdel Aziz Haikal reaches down to grab a green shoot from a paddy field in Egypt’s northern Nile Delta at a time of year when the plant should be filled with rice grains.

Instead the farmer rubs. The Nile valley and the Nile Delta are the most important agricultural production areas and as such, population density is extremely high, estimated at 1, inhabitants per km² (). Farmers try to boost their production, but irrigation water is in short supply, mainly during the summer season.

The water policy corresponds to water storage expansion of the Nile river within and outside Egypt for the country’s benefit, including: i) the 2 nd increase in height of the Aswan Dam (up to a storage capacity of 2 million m³), ii) the construction of the Jebel Aulia dam on the While Nile in Sudan, saving 2 million m³ per year.

However, this ratio is higher in the middle and south of the Nile Delta and lower in the northern parts, where water logging and salinization take place. Fig. Irrigation and drainage network s in the Nile Delta. Abd-Alla Gad and R.

Ali / Procedia Social and Behavioral Sciences 19 () Table 4. Canal Witdh and Length (km). On average about liters of water is used to produce 1 kilo of rice. This number can vary depending on climate, soil type and water management practices.

The government has restricted cultivation of rice to an area of 1 million acres (farmers were previously able to use most of the Nile Delta for cultivation) in specified areas of the Nile. The offshore Nile Delta basin is considered as one of the most promising province in Egypt which has an excellent potential gas and condensate reserves for future exploration.

This study aimed to characterize the origin of natural gas and to determine whether it is biogenic, thermogenic or mixed processes which are considered the dominant generation pathways. Ahmed Abd-Rabo used to get all the water he needed to feed his crops 50 km (30 miles) from Egypt's River Nile.

Then supplies in the canal linking his seven acres to the river dwindled as other. For seven years the Nile Delta village of Kafr Ziada has been banned from growing rice. But like most Egyptian farming communities, it has shrugged off restrictions aimed at conserving water.

The area of cultivated rice in Egypt is about 9 billion cubic meters of water per year of Egypt's share of Nile water of 55 billion cubic meters. But rice is not the most water-consuming, as banana uses three times the amount of water consumed by the acres of rice, so more solutions should be seen instead of reducing the areas of rice, which is.

The latest threat is a massive dam scheduled to be completed this year on the headwaters of the Blue Nile, which supplies 59 percent of Egypt’s water.
