    Abstract: The review examines the impact of deficit irrigation and mulching materials on crop yield and water use efficiency. The challenges posed by population growth and climate change necessitate new solutions to improve agriculture. The best irrigation strategies yield large yields for a given amount of water. Deficit irrigation and mulching significantl... Show More

    Abstract: The study focused on fitting non-stationary rainfall Intensity-Duration-Frequency (IDF) curves based on the General Extreme Value (GEV) distribution function to establish climate change existence in Benin City. The intensity levels were calculated, with the aid of the open-access R-studio software. Four linear behavioural parameter models considere... Show More
