Irrigation and drainage principles, Soil and Water relationships, irrigation scheduling and the likes.

The course introduce the students to the macineries involved in Agricultural and Bioresources Engineering practice in the aspects of agricultural processing and storage, farm mechanization and land tillage, irrigation and water resources management and environmental structures.

Basic Agricultural & Bioresources Engineering (ABE 202) provides a broad introduction to the discipline of Agricultural & Bioresources Engineering from a perspective of modern day applications of engineering science to agriculture rather than the Traditional Agricultural Engineering. The emphasis in the course is on developing a general understanding of the role of Agricultural and Bioresources Engineers in shaping society generally. Consideration is given to various farm power sources most especially tractors and other farm implements and their uses for various field operations. The course exposes the students to tractor driving and the use of tractor for various field operations.

The course, Basic Hydrology looks at the assessment, development, utilisation and
management of the water resources of any region. It also studies the effect of the different
components that effects water availability, how water travels on the ground and under the
ground. It also looks at water use leading to how to adequately plan on its efficient
exploration and supplementation when necessary.
