رشد جمعیت جهان، محدودیت منابع آب و نیاز به تولید محصول بیشتر، به تمایل کشاورزان در مصرف کودهای نیتروژنی بیش از نیاز گیاه و به دنبال آن آبشویی نیترات اضافه به آب های زیرزمینی و آلودگی زیست محیطی منجر شده است. به همین دلیل ارزیابی مدل های جدید با کاربری آسان در برآورد صحیح از توزیع رطوبت و نیتروژن و شناسایی حرکت آب و املاح در خاک منطقه و انتخاب بهترین گزینه مدیریتی با دقت بالا ضروری است. این پژوهش با هدف اعتبارسنجی مدل Eu-Rrotae-N دربرآورد توزیع رطوبت و نیتروژن و شاخص‌های عملکرد گیاه فلفل تحت مدیریت های مختلف کود نیتروژن انجام شد. تیمارهای آزمایشی شامل سه سطح کودی صفر (N0)، نسبت نیترات به آمونیوم 20:80 (N2) و 40:60 (N3) بود که در طرح آماری بلوک های کامل تصادفی در سه تکرار در اصفهان اجرا شد. آبیاری با پایش روزانه رطوبت و به میزان کمبود رطوبت از ظرفیت مزرعه انجام گرفت. عملکرد گیاه فلفل، رطوبت و نیتروژن خاک در طول دوره رشد اندازه گیری شدند. ارزیابی کارایی مدل با استفاده از چهار شاخص ریشه میانگین مربعات خطا (RMSE)، ریشه میانگین مربعات خطای نرمال شده (NRMSE)، ضریب تبیین (r2) و شاخص توافق ویلموت (d) انجام شد. عملکرد گیاه با اختلاف قابل قبولی کمتر از میزان واقعی برآورد شد. برای نیترات و رطوبت خاک، NRMSE به ترتیب برابر 45/11و 08/12، RMSE 89/0 و 022/0، r2 998/0 و996/0 و d برابر با 665/0و66/0 بود. میزان NRMSE کمتر از 20 درصد گویای کارایی خوب مدل و r2 بیشتر از 90 درصد نشان دهنده روند شبیه‌سازی بسیار مناسب مدل بود. همچنین RMSE و d در محدوده قابل قبول قرار داشتند. با توجه به این که نتایج ارزیابی نشان دهنده کارایی مناسب مدل Eu-Rotate-N در شبیه سازی رطوبت، نیترات و عملکرد گیاه بود. پس می توان از این مدل برای شبیه سازی در بهینه‌سازی مدیریت آب و نیتروژن در مزرعه در شرایط گرم و خشک اصفهان استفاده کرد.

چکیده [English]

Introduction: World's population growth and limited water resources and needing to more food production led to interest farmers to use nitrogen fertilizer more than soil requires and subsequently Nitrate leaching causes groundwater and environmental pollution. Therefore, researches has concentrated on improvement of nitrogen use efficiency, which numerical simulation is the effective solutions to optimize the management of water and fertilizer in the field in order to achieve the maximal yield and minimal nitrate pollution of soil, groundwater and drainage in water deficiency crisis condition. For this reason, the evaluation of new user friendly models in correct estimation of soil moisture and nitrogen content distribution and recognition of water and solutes movement in the soil and choosing the best management option for increasing productivity and economic performance and also reduction of nitrate pollution of soil and ground water source with the least limitations and high accuracy is necessary. The Eu-Rotate-N model has been developed for simulation of nitrogen use and specifically for optimization of nitrogen use in variation of vegetables in a wide range of conditions, which without the need to calibration has presented satisfactory results in many areas. So this study was conducted to evaluate the efficiency of Eu-Rate-N model in assessment of moisture and nitrogen distribution and yield under different nitrogen fertigation management for pepper plant.
Materials and Methods: Sweet pepper was planted at density of 8.33plant per m2 in a row planting method. 150kg per hectare per year of fertilizer was used during the season. Crop yield, soil water and nitrogen content were measured on a regular basis. The treatments consisted of three fertilizer level: zero (N0), the ratio of ammonium to nitrate 20:80 (N1) and 40:60 (N2), which was conducted in a completely randomized block with three replications in Isfahan. Irrigation based on daily monitoring of humidity was used with drip irrigation system. The irrigation Depth was calculated and applied with aim of replacing the water content deficiency in the root zone up to field capacity (FC) for the no water deficit treatment.
Coefficients were modified only for plant coefficients and length of each growth stage according to the area. To compare simulated data with measured data in field, indices of statistical root mean square error (RMSE), normalized root mean square error (NRMSE), coefficient of determination (r2) and index of agreement Wilmot (d) were used.
Results and Discussion: The NRMSE index for nitrate and soil water content was 11.45, 12.08, the RMSE was 0.89, 0.022, the r2 was 0.998, 0.996 and the d was 0.667, 0.66 respectively. All calculated indices for soil water and nitrate content were in the acceptable range. NRMSE index was less than 20 percent in all treatments which was indicating good ability of model in simulating soil water and nitrate content and r2 was more than 90 percent which pointed out to well process of simulation of the model. The simulation accuracy was greater at the end of the growing season. Comparing of RMSE statistical index for different depths showed that the simulation accuracy was increased by increasing depth which can be due to changes in surface evaporation and also the effect of environmental factors on surficial layers more than other layers. Generally the best simulation was related to the layer of 80 to 100 cm. And the average RMSE was 0.019 cm3 per cm3 for soil moisture content and 0.22 mg per kg for soil nitrate.In the layer of 80-100 cm the best simulation of soil moisture and nitrate content between treatments was related to N0 by the RMSE equal to 0.024 cm3 per cm3 and 0.21 mg per kg respectively and the weakest simulation was related to N3.The simulated yield in all treatments was less than its actual value. Comparison of simulations between three treatments demonstrated the usefulness of EU-Rotate N to examine the effects of management on, nitrate leaching.
Conclusions: The Eu-rotate-n model without calibration for site location was well capable of estimating soil water and nitrate content under different fertilizer management for Isfahan climatic conditions nevertheless it is suggested to use to calibrate yield functions to improve the yield simulation. Generally we can use Eu-rotate-n model for simulation of water and nitrogen content and eventually approach to integrated and optimal management in the farm in the hot, dry conditions of Isfahan.
