Introduction:

Many written scientific works of biologists and biophysics describe the effect of magnetic fields on plants. Based on these works, “Magnetic Technologies” company came up with a method of magneto-hydro dynamical activization of natural waters and devices used for this method. This method is an essential part in the whole complex of using magnetic fields in agriculture. It includes physical- chemical changes of natural water parameters, resulting in improvement of filtration properties and in an increase of dissolving properties of water. These changes result in an increased ability of soil to get rid of salts and results in a better assimilation of nutrients and fertilizer in plants during the vegetation period.

It is known that plants and trees need mineral salts and microelements from the soil to function and photosynthesize properly. However, plants do not use the majority of nutrients that are in soil. While watering plants with normal water, only a small amount of nutritional elements dissolves in the soil and becomes available to the plants. Further consumption of these nutrients from the soil is very rare when plants start to grow and a larger amount of nutrients is required, the deficit of microelements results in low numbers of crop. The deficit of microelements/nutrients in the soil is the main reason for a decreased growth rate and low crop. That is the reason to why magnetic water should be used for irrigation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Magnetism surrounds us in our everyday lives. It is the earth’s natural defence mechanism to the extremes of the sun and outer space bombardments of numerous types of cosmic rays. On earth Magnetism is the natural enhancement agent of our most precious resource water, constantly realigning the molecular structure after interferences and recycling since the world began. But not only the flowing water we drink and irrigate with, but also within our bodies of all living creatures.  We within Magnetic Technologies understand this process and enhance and target the process to the benefit us humans, livestock and of our environment and the needs of the water resource industry.

Defining Water Quality

The long practice of preferencing the water with different mineralization rate for irrigation has produced the evidence that it is insufficient to define the quality of water by the sediment values only. It is expedient that the quality of water be measured by several methods including:

  • the Irrigation Factor [IF]
  • sodium percentage content [SP]
  • relative potential sodium absorption rate [SAR]
  • magnesium percentage content [MP] sodium carbonate and bicarbonate content
  • and Chloride content danger

Notwithstanding an evaluation method of water quality, the following factors will be critical in determining an agricultural application:

  • water and physical properties of the soil
  • degree and nature of salinization
  • spoil draining degree
  • depth , mineralisation and chemical composition of ground waters
  • level of rainfalls
  • standards, mode and method of irrigation
  • salt resistance of crops

Utilization of mineralised waters requires profound scrutiny for specific natural and economic conditions

 

Advantages of Magnetisation:

  • Vegetation period decreases by 15-20 days, therefore the crops ripe 15-20 days earlier than normally.
  • Crop production increases from 15-20% to 100%, and in some cases, even more.
  • Plant disease rates drastically decrease.
  • Taste of agricultural products improves.
  • Approximately 30% less water is used for irrigation
  • Therefore 30% less energy is used in water pipes.
  • Brackish water (salty water) can be used for watering (from 6-8 thousand PPM inclusive) and for some cultures, very salty water can be used (from 15 thousand inclusive).
  • By magnetizing seeds before sowing and by irrigating them with magnetic water, the need for crop material decreases by min. 30%.
  • Average of 30% decrease in fertilizer consumption.
  • Active soil desalination takes place, increasing crop production year after year.

Sample of Academic Reports

  1. Crop Yield

Lin and Yotvat (1990) showed an increase in crop yield, size and sugar content of melon grown with magnetized irrigation water in South Africa. Maheshwari and Grewal (2009) reported statistically significant increases in the yield and water productivity of snow peas and celery, but no significant effect on the yield or productivity of peas.  Harari and Lin (1989) conducted a study that showed the size of muskmelons, the number of fruits and their sugar content were significantly greater when irrigated with MW.  Lentils irrigated with MW showed significant increase growth, the stimulation in growth is thought to be attributed to an effect of MW on the induction of cell metabolism and mitosis (Qados and Hozayn, 2010).  Magnetized water has been reported to triple seedling emergence of wheat (Hilal and Hilal, 2000).  Reina et al. (2002) reported a significant increase in the rate of water adsorption and an increase in total mass of lettuce when treated with magnetic water.

Chickpea plants irrigated with magnetized water grew taller and heavier than plants irrigated with tap water (Hozayn and Qados, 2010).  The authors attribute this stimulation to an increase in photosynthetic pigments, where the magnetic water induces cell metabolism and mitosis meristematic cells in pea, lentil and flax (Belyavskaya, 2001).  Additionally, it is believed that new protein bands are formed in plants that are treated with magnetic water, and that these proteins are responsible for increased growth (Hozayn and Qados, 2010). MW has been linked to increases in photosynthetic pigments, endogenous promotors, total phenol and protein biosynthesis in plants (Qados and Hozayn, 2010 and Shabrangi and Majd, 2009).

  1. Germination

The application of a magnetic field has been shown to induce seed germination, and increase the percentage of germinated seeds.  Carbonell et al. (2000) showed an increase of the germination rate and percentage of rice seeds treated with a magnetic field.  Moon and Chung (2000) treated tomato seeds with a magnetic field and found that germination rates were accelerated about 1.1–2.8 times when compared to the control seeds.  Pinus tropicalis, a tree species endemic to western Cuba, typically experiences a <50% germination rate, when seeds were treated with MW as part of a 2007 study, germination occurred in 70-81% of seeds (Morejón et al., 2007).  Germination of broad bean seeds was found to take place 2-3 days earlier when seeds underwent magnetic treatment (Podleoney et al., 2004).

  1. Livestock

Dairy cows that drink magnetized water have shown an increase in milk production with the same amount of milk fat as present in cows drinking ordinary water.  They also have a longer lactation period with fewer non-productive days and overall health is better (Lin and Yotvat, 1990).  Levy et al. (1990) demonstrated that young male cattle watered with MW increased their dry feed intake, while improving their digestion and nitrogen retention.  Piglets watered with MW drank twice as much water, and grew 12.5% larger than the control group (Kronenberg, 1993).  Chickens watered with MW grew larger, with an increase in the meat to fat ratio, and experienced reduced mortality rates (Gholizadeh et al., 2008).  Also, poultry have showed an increase in egg production when watered with MW (Lin and Yotvat, 1990).

  1. Health

Globally millions of people drink MW as a “healing’ prophylaxis, despite little evidence to support or debunk the benefits of MW on health.  In China the use of magnetic materials is a traditional remedy and is becoming more popular in modern medical science.  Drinking MW has been reported to improve bladder problems, stroke recovery, arthritis pain and reduce blood pressure.  Thought to improve the bodily environment through the introduction of a magnetic field, it is believed that MW can strengthen the immune system, antioxidant activity and decrease blood viscosity, cholesterol and triglycerides (Dayong et al, 1999).  Decreasing blood viscosity can keep blood flow rates at normal levels, preventing fats and plaque from accumulating on vessel walls and cell membranes.

Oral irrigation with MW has been shown to greatly reduce supra-gingival calculus and plaque on dental patients (Watt & Rosenfelder, 2005).  Those patients using the MW irrigator experienced a 44% reduction in calculus volume on their teeth compared to the control group.  In tests on animals, Yue et al. (1983) reported a 70% cure rate in the treatment of urinary stones with MW and over 93.9% for salivary calculus.

The Scientists & Technology background:

Russian technology developed through 50 institutes with over 500 scientists during the 70’s and 80’s latterly under the leadership of Prof Yuri Tkatchenko. During the early 90’s the Professor relocated a small science management team to the UAE and created a long term partnership and  the Magnetic Technologies LLC with Sheikh Junaid Khoory. During the past 20 years further research and development continued along with expansion into the global market place, with over 50 different applications into various industries and the environment.

The technology base not only addresses land based solutions but also weather modification and atmospheric influencing technology, dissipating air pollution over cities, enhancing rainfall, shielding from sand storms and protecting from fog.

The Principle of the Magnetic Water Treatment for Agriculture:

Water molecules, due to activity ‘interference’, lose their polarity charge and then naturally cluster, retaining and suspending pollution particles, restricting the plants and animals from efficiently absorbing the water through their cells. Magnetising water reverts the molecule distribution evenly, recharging the molecules, allowing water to be used more efficiently, lessening required intakes, maximising nutrient  absorption.

 Some changes of water properties as a result of magnetic treatment are acceleration of:

  • Viscosity by 3-4%
  • Surface Tension by 10-13%
  • Electric Conductivity by 7-26%
  • Specific Heat Capacity by 3-4%
  • Latent Heat by 10-40%
  • Magnetic Susceptibility by 200-400%

Some changes in operational requirements:

  • reduced and potential elimination of chemical and additives reliance
  • reduced maintenance and deterioration of filtration and irrigation systems

 

Positive effects of treating irrigation source water supplies:

Lakes, Rivers, Sea Lagoons, Ponds Including Fresh Water, Ground Water & TSE Expectations
After treatment the following changes occur:

  • renewal of natural biological processes
  • improvement of water biosphere
  • elimination of bad odours and Mosquito infestations
  • improves the fish habitat and their development
  • improves ecology in the surrounding area for insects, birds and plant life

Economic Effect Of Magnetic Treatment

example:
State purchase price per 1 ton of wheat, USD           $ 469
Cost of magnetic device ‘A 600’, USD                        $ 4,600
RESULT, ton/plot                                                          315 – 244 = $ 71
PROFIT, USD/plot                                                         71 x 469 = $ 33,299
PAYBACK PERIOD, seasons                                       4,600 ÷ 33,299 = 0.138
NET PROFIT at first season, USD/plot                    33,299 – 4,600 = $ 28,699

 

The economic advantage of using magnetic water for irrigating the crops:

  • Vegetation period decreases by 15-20 days, therefore the crops ripe 15-20 days earlier than normally.
  • Crop production increases from 15-20% to 100%, and in some cases, even more.
  • Plant disease rates drastically decrease.
  • Taste of agricultural products improves.
  • Approximately 30% less water is used for irrigation
  • Sea water (salty water) can be used for watering (from 6-8 thousand PPM inclusive) and for some cultures, very salty water can be used (from 15 thousand inclusive).
  • By magnetizing seeds before sowing and by irrigating them with magnetic water, the need for crop material decreases by min. 30%.
  • Average of 30% decrease in fertilizer consumption.
  • Active soil desalination takes place, increasing crop production year after year.

AGRICULTURAL COMPANY NADCO CO.  SANTA ADRIANA FIELD / CHACABUCO HILL.

We are a dedicated agribusiness company, focused on table grape production since 1994, located in Chacabuco Hill, commune of Colina. The month of September 2011 we have installed the magnetic device, model AGI-400, in to the irrigation system that is currently covering almost 12 hectares, roughly 16% of the total area exploited.

The area irrigated with structured water has been broken down in to two quarters of 7.55 hectares of Thompson Seedless variety and two quarters, 4.21 hectares, of Crimson Seedless variety. The whole area has profoundly suffered of severe drops in water levels delivered from wells, which mainly was the reason we decided to acquire the magnetic implement.

Fortunately, the upshot was a pleasant surprise, results enriched compared to other soil, water and tissue analysis, that was conducted within the same premises, irrigation schemes, and foliage applications throughout the whole irrigation system.

Some of the laboratory results in Chile:

1) Water Analysis: – Water hardness decrease by 22% (CaCO3 mg / lt)
2) Soil Analysis:|

  • Lowering of pH to 8.1 (alkaline).
  • 72% increment of available Nitrogen
  • 232% potassium increase (mg / kg)

A decrease in soluble cations / anions:

  • 54% less Sodium and Magnesium (meq / 1)
  • 56% less Chloride (meq / 1)
  • 56% less Sulphate (meq / 1)
  • 28% less Bicarbonate (meq / 1)

3) Tissue analysis result. – A total of 11.2% nitrogen increase (mg/100g)
4) Tissue Analysis.

  • 25% less total nitrogen (%)
  • 28% more calcium (%)

 

In the end, we were pleased with the results, which in practical terms resulted in a 15-20% increase of fruit size for the Thompson Seedless variety and a 20-30% for Crimson Seedless variety.

A better post-harvest with minor stalk dehydration demonstrated when clusters were left for 6 days at a room temperature. Magnetized branches had a pleasanter appearance as well as taste, especially the Thompson Seedless variety where as regularly irrigated vines presented a higher shelling rate and lower reservance threshold.

Conclusion

It appears that utilization of magnetized water (30 mT) can led to improve quantity and quality of common bean crop. It suggests that magnetic water could stimulate defence system, photosynthetic activity, and translocation efficiency of photo-assimilates in common bean plants. We hope to attract the attention of scientific community to study this important phenomenon. Collaboration with physicists; biologists and physiologists are necessary in order to understand the mechanism of magnetic water action. Generally, using magnetic water treatment could be a promising technique for agricultural improvements but extensive research is required on different crops

Based on results of our experiment plants irrigated with magnetic water exhibited marked increases in the most of vegetative growth, chemical constitute i.e. photosynthetic pigments (chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b and carotenoids), total phenols and total indole over the control plants. Also, the magnetized water treatment exhibited an increase in the number of protein bands as compared to the control. Moreover, the magnetized water treatment increased yield and yield component at harvest. On  average, the increases in grain, straw and biological yield tiller -1 reached to 31.33, 24.56 and 28.24%, respectively compared with tap water treatment. It appears that the preliminary study on utilization of magnetized water can led to improve quantity of wheat crop..

Benefits to Livestock

Benefits of Magnetic Water to field livestock
[Magnetised Water speeds up the metabolism within animals]

  • watering: well being, growth and general enhancement in taste and  productivity of meat
  • feed: enhancement of feed production in line with general agriculture
  • Manure more efficient treatment  and conversion to fertilizer
    • Increase of average weight gain in calves by up to 35%
    • Increase of average weigh gain in piglets by up to 48%
    • Increase of average weight gain in lamb by up to 12%
    • Increase of average weight gain in rabbits up to 10%

Magnetic water, treated and stored by this method, should be used for animal drinking; for the treatment of cows’ udder, which will drastically decrease amounts of bacteria in milk. The water should also be used for hygienic cleaning of animal buildings.

 

Chicken, Ducks, Geese

  • Reduces mortality rate
  • Lessens the  Feed Conversion Ratio
  • Stabilizes the food intake
  • Shortens the required nourishment period
  • Increases size and health
    All aimed at a higher performance index

Poultry Farming

Using magnetic water for drinking purposes of chicks results in an increase in the process of bone formation. As well as, improves morphology of blood. Magnetic water increases growth and development of poultry: decrease by 2-3 times of death rates of chicks and an increase of their mass (average weight gain increases by 5-7%), egg-laying qualities by 10%. Also the quality of meat improves. These results showed that a high-quality, product can be obtained a few days earlier than usual.


Milk Production

Cow Milk production

It is known that some cows are difficult to milk which results in slowing down of milking process of a milking machine. Using our method reduces the firmness of the udder and effectively makes it easier to milk. As well as, increases healing effect of the cows suffering from mastitis and increases cows’ ability to resist diseases.

Hydroponics

Iron and Manganese ions oxidize and precipitate out of solution causing problems of staining and nutrient deficiency. This process is exacerbated when the water is sanitized with UV light or chemicals.

  • Magnets in the nutrient flow will attract and remove Iron oxide (it is magnetic) keeping the plant root systems and sterilisers cleaner.
  • This in turn leads to a cleaner root system, improving nutrient uptake and consequently yield.


Fish Enhancement

  • Magnetising the waters evenly distributes oxygen, breaking molecule clusters. Fish are attracted to and thrive in oxygenated fresh and saline waters, even up to 60,000ppm.
  • Suspended pollution drops providing better visibility
  • Natural beneficial ecology improves for feeding fish
  • Health of fish improves growing faster and larger
  • Resilience to disease improves
  • Fish stock increases


Benefits of fish in ecosystem

  • Fish are heterotrophic organisms consume autotrophic organisms and use the organic compounds in their bodies as energy sources and as raw materials to create their own biomass. Fish, besides giving a pleasant and lively look to the lakes, helps to keep the aquatic life under control by controlling the population of lower organisms as insects, phytoplankton and zooplankton. Small fish serve as food to higher fish organisms and birds.
  • Magnetised Water creates a proliferation of Fish, creating an evenly oxygenated environment

 

Mosquito Elimination

When infestation of mosquitoes is prolific around water amenities,  then by Magnetising water, within lakes, ponds, water courses and TSE open storage for irrigation,  this prevents the mosquito larvae survival, by transforming  its necessary habitat, by altering stagnated water structure, dropping suspended pollutant food particles, thus eliminating manifestation of the mosquito.

Magnetic  systems eliminate the  alternative option of pesticides, costing thousands of dollars per month to control medium sized public amenity lake environments.

 

Organic Fertilizer improvement

Magnetic intervention:

  • Improves the process systems
  • Reduces odours
  • Enhances benefits to plants and the ground
  • Reduces need for  non organic fertilizers

 

Aquaponics combined system

     

Aquaponics is essentially a type of hydroponics consisting of two main things. One is fish culture and the other is hydroponics. Instead of adding hydroponics nutrients into the reservoir to feed the plants, they rely on fish to provide the needed nutrients. Here fish waste serves as a nutrient for plants while plants generate oxygen for the fish to survive. With this symbiotic process you can grow healthy fishes as well as plants.

Magnetising brackish saline water for irrigation use    

                                                                 

Magnetising brackish water up to 7000ppm alters the molecular structure breaking the hydrogen bonds within the clusters isolating the saline molecules with their additional nutrients making it beneficial to plants

Advantages summary:

  • breaking the hydrogen bonds and preventing the damaging salt crystals from forming,
  • converting the previously unusable water to a simple absorbable solution,
  • carrying greater nutrients than normal fresh water. It has an advantage over fresh water in agriculture irrigation.
  • It has been noted that the creep of saline mix from deltas penetrating up river is increasing yearly, with low laying areas of surrounding agriculture land becoming increasingly desperate for usable irrigation waters.
  • Hinterland magnetised brackish waters can be released for irrigation; with the same magnetised water simultaneously flushing the ground from salt encrustations beneficial to agriculture.


Global Importance Soil Desalination:

This is the potentially the most important breakthrough within the challenges of water sustainability. As previously quoted from international bodies, by the year 2030 it is suggested that the world will be per capita unsustainable within its fresh water consumption. Less than 1% of the world’s fresh water (approximately 0.007% of all water on earth) is accessible for direct human uses. Of the 1% approximately 10% goes to industry who use it pollute and dump it. Approximately 10% is used for domestic use of which a quarter directly goes down the WC and wash basin another quarter is wasted in leakage enroute,  leaving .5% for human direct consumption which even that will be unsustainable by the year 2030…….But upto a colossal 80% of available fresh water is used by Agriculture for irrigation and livestock of which in many areas upto 40% of that is wasted enroute through leaks and poor distribution.

Solutions to the salinity threat will largely depend on reassigning land and water use for the future and the taking of correcting measures, such as reclaimation strategies for both dry land and irrigated or degraded lands affected by saline, saline-alkaline and sodic soils.

Causes of saline and/or sodic soils

  • Saline and/or sodic soil is caused by four separate conditions:
  • high salt in the parent material and low rainfall (low leaching);
  • high rainfall with poor internal drainage;
  • a high water table that carries salt to the soil surface, and
  • a high amount of salt being applied through chemicals, manure and poor quality irrigation water.

Before a reclamation system can be established, the factors causing salt accumulation must be eliminated or minimised.

Ions most commonly associated with soil salinity include the anions: chloride (Cl-), sulphate (SO4=), carbonate (HCO3-), and sometimes nitrate (NO3-)and the cations: sodium (Na+), calcium(Ca++), magnesium (Mg++), and sometimes potassium (K+). Salts of these ions occur in highly variable concentrations and proportions.

Effect of salinity on crop production

Plant growth and yield are limited mainly by the soil environment factors. Soil, water, nutrients, salinity, sodicity, structure, temperature, pH, and mineral toxicities can all interact to limit plant growth.

In Saline soils although pH (<8.5) and ESP (<15%) are not high, CEC is >4 mmhos/cm and an excess of soluble salt in the subsoil restricts water uptake by crops; in the case of alkalinity there are Nutrient deficiencies (either because of a lack of nutrients, or because roots are unable to access them). The best way of understanding these limitations is to consider them in terms of the interacting factors that directly influence crop growth.

Traditional methods of reclamation of saline and sodic soils

Drainage carries the salts down through the soil profile and out of the rooting zone. Without drainage, salts will accumulate regardless of any applied soil amendments. But the limitation associated with drainage is that it is an expensive operation requiring complex technical knowledge.

  • Leaching and reclaiming saline soils

Saline soils cannot be reclaimed by any chemicals, conditioner, or fertilizer. Reclamation of these soils consists of simply applying enough high-quality water to leach the soil thoroughly. The water applied should be low in sodium but can be fairly saline (1,500 to 2,000 ppm total salt), as this helps to keep the soil permeable during the leaching process. Generally, about 12 inches of water are required to remove 70 to 80 percent of the salt for each foot of soil.

Limitation: Application of excess water can create extra management problems due to the threat of high water tables, increased expense of irrigation water and difficulty in maintaining adequate levels of soil nitrate for crop growth.

  • Reclaiming saline and sodic soils

In sodic soils, the exchangeable sodium is sometimes so great that the resulting dispersed soil is almost impervious to water. Sodic soil can be treated by replacing the absorbed sodium with a soluble source of cation i.e. calcium. Calcium may be made available through manipulation with native gypsum already in the soil, calcium in irrigation water (Calcium chloride), or commercial amendments. They may be useful where soil permeability is low due to low salinity, excess sodium, or high carbonate/bicarbonate in the water.

In order to reclaim soil to a depth of one foot, gypsum recommendations are as follows: tons of gypsum per acre = 1.7 X (meq Na/100 g – (CEC X 5%).

Reclamation of a foot depth of sodic soil on one acre requires approximately 1.7 tons of pure gypsum for each milliequivalent of exchangeable sodium present per 100 grams of soil. For example, if soil has a CEC of 20 milliequivalents per 100 grams and 30 percent exchangeable sodium, there would be 6 milliequivalents of sodium per 100 grams of soil. Thus, 10.2 tons of gypsum (6 x 1.7) per acre would be required to reclaim this soil.

If sodic soils contain no source of calcium (gypsum or free carbonates), then gypsum or a soluble calcium source needs to be applied. However, the reclamation process is not complete until most of the sodium is removed from the soil to at least a depth of three to five feet. Even then, more time is required for restoration of good soil productivity.

Limitation: Once the soil structure is completely destroyed, it is slow to return to a desirable condition. Correcting saline and sodic soils requires salt to be leached out of the soil profile. This requires good quality water, good soil permeability and good drainage. Amendments that supply soluble calcium are needed in huge quantity to correct sodic soils.


Crucial growing problem of saline contamination:

It stands to reason that soil desalination is a crucial growing problem nowadays. It is noteworthy that the possibility of using magnetized water to desalinate the soil accounts for its enhanced dissolving capacity which has been registered repeatedly.

  • Soviet experiments:

Soviet scientists staged a myriad of trials on the soil for experimental drainage. They came to establish that the density of magnetised water which had penetrated the solid layer was 0.1 g/cm more than that of unmagnetized water. It was noted that filtration rate had been doubled.

In the case of magnetised water, every 100g of soil had salts removed by 10g more. as soon as 5% water solution of technical green vitriol was exposed to magnetic treatment, it yielded an improvement which leeched of the soil 20g more of salts per every 100g, as opposed to regular water.

  • MagTech Targeted solution:

So that is the targeted ‘problem’ that within the Magtech team it is viewed as the potentially easiest to convert for direct human usage, both in land and water resource; even if only converting 5% water from agriculture to domestic, this potentially makes available ten times the existing availability for direct human consumption. How? by applying magnetic technology to brackish saline mixed water, releasing ‘unusable problem water of today’ back into direct use for crops and vegetation. Plus at the same time eliminating saline soil contamination potentially releasing millions of acres of marginalised land back into productivity.

Treatment no II. The seeds of foxtail millet has been treated twice with magnetic waves and sown in an area of 1170 sq.ft. It was irrigated with farm pond water with magnetic pipe. The yield obtained was 7.100kgs and estimated yield per acre is about 2.64 qtls.

Treatment no III. The seeds of foxtail millet has been treated thrice with magnetic waves and sown in an area of 1170 sq.ft. It was irrigated with farm pond water with magnetic pipe. The yield obtained was 7.050kgs and estimated yield per acre is about 2.62 qtls.

RESULT: The seed treated twice with magnetic waves and irrigated with magnetic pipe has given good yield.

 

Sample Range of Magnetic Devices:


Choosing a magnetic system for irrigation and water treatment

  • The choice of a magnetic system depends on the quantity of water used daily irrigating your land area.
  • These calculations are based on the maximum amount of water needed for irrigation in hot countries, including UAE, where the average amount of water needed for 1m 2 is 12 liters/day.
  • Using the table below, you will easily be able to choose the right magnetic system needed to irrigate a particular area.
