Abstract

The irrigation technique requires a large amount of water. As water resources are increasingly scarce, manage them in a rational manner is necessary. In this context, the agricultural reuse is emerging as a practice that seeks to establish the most efficient use of water resources, ensuring security and increment global food production. However, how the information are reduced on the culture of sugar cane on the effects of using treated sewage effluent (TSE) and its impact on the chemical and biological attributes of soil is of paramount importance evaluate its effect for sustainability production. Thus, assume that "The use of treated sewage effluent via subsurface irrigation may promote positive changes in chemical and biological attributes of soil cultivated with sugar cane."
