  • ANALYSIS OF FEEDERS OUTAGES ON THE DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM OF ZARIA TOWN

    The paper is aimed at analysing the outages on the feeders of the distribution system, in Zaria Town, Kaduna State, Nigeria. The 11 kV feeders are the NNPC feeder, Gaskiya feeder, Sabon Gari feeder, NTC/RLY feeder and the Canteen feeder. The 33 kV feeders, on the other hand, are the Shika feeder, Giwa/Makarfi feeder and the Soba feeder. The analysis is based on the daily outage data collected for a period of about one year (April, 2003 to April, 2004 – thirteen months). From these data, the t...

    THE ROLE OF EXTENSION IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING PROFESSION IN NIGERIA

    Ahmad, H I (2016)
    This paper discusses how extension methods could promote awareness for the needed advancement in agricultural engineering in Nigeria. This could be achieved by revealing the latest operations and giving feedback on farmers/users responses to such technologies. Performance of a number of labour saving devices developed by some of the Nigerian Research institutions and centers requiring commercial adoption are reported.

    EVALUATION OF IRRIGATION APPLICATION EFFICIENCY: CASE STUDY OF CHANCHAGA IRRIGATION SCHEME

    Water is an integral issue needed to attain the desired targets but good quality water for irrigation purpose is gradually become scarce. The seasonal nature of rainfall can give rise to water stress at critical periods of growth. This research attempts to evaluate the irrigation application efficiency of Chanchaga irrigation scheme, Minna, Niger state. A hand auger was used to bore to a desired depth to remove samples of the moist soil. Samples of the moist soil removed was placed in a can, ...

    Review of sustainable productivity of dryland farming systems through furrow diking

    In areas where crop production is limited by low and variable rainfall, the search continues for cultural practices that conserve soil and water while maintaining or improving crop yield and quality. One of such practices is furrow diking (also known as tied-ridging, furrow damming, basin tillage or micro basin tillage). The practice involves constructing small earthen dams or dikes at certain intervals in furrowed fields to capture potential runoff water, thus increasing the ponding period f...

    ESTIMATING GROUNDWATER RECHARGE FOR SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT IN THE NIGERIAN SECTOR OF THE CHAD BASIN

    Groundwater is the perennial source of water supply for domestic and other applications in the Nigerian sector of the Chad basin. Therefore, quantifying the current rate of recharge is fundamental to sustainable management of the resource. The chloride (Cl) mass balance technique was used to estimate the rate of recharge. Average Cl concentrations in rainfall from three stations over eight years were used as input data. Eight unsaturated zone Cl profiles were obtained and Cl concentrations in...
