Determination Of The Hydraulic Conductivity And Infiltration Capacity Of The Fedral Unversity Of Technology Owerri (Futo) Farm

ABSTRACT

This thesis describes the in situ methods of the determination of both the hydraulic conductivity and infiltration capacity of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO) farm soil. The inverse anger hole method was chosen to determine the hydraulic conductivity due to its simplicity and effectiveness. Cognizance was taken of the factors as presented in the project report that affect the results determined. Also the various methods of determining the two parameters were reviewed. The importance of the data gotten from the use of these methods both in Agricultural and other fields have also been stressed in various sections of the project report. Finally, both tests and results were done and presented under the standard recommended procedures. From these, it was found out that the soil has a basic infiltration rate of about 7.45cm/hr and based on average values the hydraulic conductivity is about 9.2 x 10-3 cm/sec and infiltration rate of about 19.70cm/hr. This implies that the soil has a medium value of hydraulic conductivity and a moderately high rate of infiltration, therefore sprinkler irrigation system is recommended.
