Compost’ leachate recycling through land treatment and application of natural Zeolite

Background: The entrance of untreated wastewater or disposal leachate to water resources such as surface water, groundwater or irrigation water increases the risk of contaminant accumulation. Removal or deduction of water contaminant concentration is then crucial before entering water to the natural resources or its transfusion directly to the soil as irrigation water. Four studies […]

Comparison of traditional and modern deficit irrigation techniques in corn cultivation using treated municipal wastewater

Purpose Declining water resources, increasing drought period and increasing irrigated area cause a shift to deficit irrigated production which is not based on full water requirement. This study was conducted to investigate the impacts of two different deficit irrigation methods, including traditional deficit irrigation (TDI) and partial root-zone drying (PRD) on water use efficiency (WUE) […]

Growth and metabolic activities of cowpea seedlings exposed to artificial pond wastewater‑treated soil

Purpose The increase in demand for fish has necessitated the establishment of fish pond. The discharge of spent pond water pollutes the adjoining surroundings. The aim of this investigation was to determine the suitability of artificial pond wastewater (APWW) as source of manure for crop cultivation. Method Cowpea seeds were planted in polybags containing soil […]

Fabrication of a vermifiltration unit for wastewater recycling and performance of vermifiltered water (vermiaqua) on onion (Allium cepa)

Purpose Vemifltration units are sludge-free, noise-free and low- or no-electricity-requiring systems of operation. The aim of this study was to emphasize wastewater treatment by vermifiltration technology using waste-eater earthworms to highlight the benefits of clean and nutritive vermifiltered water (vermiaqua) uses in agriculture to the farmers. Methods Wastewater sample was filtered through fabricated vermifiltration unit […]

Urban wastewater reuse in agriculture for irrigation in arid and semi-arid regions – A review

Purpose In recent years, attempts have been made to compensate irrigation water shortage through widespread wastewater application as a low-quality water resource for agriculture. The existing wastewater treatment plants do not have sufficient capacity to treat such a huge volume of wastewater. In arid and semiarid region, soil type as well as climate is different […]

Treated wastewater as a partial nutrient source for Lily grown in a soilless system in presence of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi

Purpose The reuse of treated wastewater (TWW) in agriculture may affect the growth of plants. The goal of this study is to investigate the potential use of TWW in irrigating Lily in presence of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi (AMF) in a closed soilless system. Method In the first experiment, plants were irrigated with a mixture of […]

Effects of fertigation with raw sewage on the vegetative development of maize and beans

Purpose Fertigation plays an important role in the so-called circular economy since it relies on the reuse of water and nutrients; therefore, this method is fundamental for production in areas with scarce resources. This study aimed to evaluate the effects of fertigation of soil plots with sewage on soil attributes, germination of seeds, and growth […]
