General Discussion / Water uptake & 2-dimensional irrigation system
« Last post by Antonis on February 07, 2017, 11:05:40 pm »
Dear all,

when an 2-dimensional irrigation system is used, the Water Balance output file presents the daily irrigation as Irrigation/2 (and is notated as such) due to the symmetry of the model. Are water uptake values contained in the Water Balance output file also halved?

I would really appreciate any help you can provide,
Installation and Help / Saltmed doesn't open on Windows 10
« Last post by Mat333 on January 18, 2017, 02:56:51 pm »

I have problems running saltmed on windows 10. I have done the installation as indicated in the userīs guide, but the error "Failed to open test connection to database. Launching database diagnostics" still appears.

I donīt know what else to do. Any suggestion.

General Discussion / Calibration

Dear all ,

Please, i have a question about how to calibrate the evapotranspiration in SALTMED model.

The values of ET given by the model are always the same even if the LAI values are changed from 0 to 3 (for example)?

Dear Antonis
Perhaps your π50 value is low, try to change it up and down to see the effect.

I use SALTMED model to simulate tomato response under saline irrigation and I have a question concerning the Total/Global solar radiation. Does SALTMED model need the shortwave or the longwave Total solar radiation? or maybe the sum of them?

I really appreciate any help you can provide,

Abdel Raouf Ramaadan did work on wheat and he wrote a draft paper. His e mail is abdelrouf ramadan <>

You need to run the model with different scenarios of hypothetical amounts of water and check on the Yield /relative yield to see which one does not give yield reduction. There no magic universal solution, Salinity level, soil texture and evaporation have different affects on the stress and that varies from one place to another.

i have a question and i would like to have an explication.
for our case we have high saline soil and I would like to estimate  recommanded irrigation rates to leach salts without recording any water stress and any deep percolation.
thank's a million

Hi guys
Any one was or working on SALTMED model application on wheat?
