Aquatic snails are the intermediate hosts of the disease schistosomiasis. Irrigation schemes have often provided a favourable habitat for these snails, but rapidly flowing water will carry them away. The research established 23 stations in irrigation canals and monitored snail numbers and water velocity ?uin= Water velocity as a control of aquatic snails in concrete canal systems for irrigation.

They can be lined with concrete, brick, stone, or a flexible membrane to prevent seepage and erosion. An open canal, channel, or ditch, is an open waterway whose purpose is to carry water from one place to another.

Channels and canals refer to main waterways supplying water to Snail control as a form of integrated control for schistosomiasis has been strongly advocated but data on biocontrol using competitor snails are relatively lacking in most endemic areas.

Background: The survey of fresh water snails in Jakara dam was carried out to investigate the different types of freshwater snails in three parts of the ology: Snails were searched for and collected in Fako, Kwata and Yadakunya between August and September using steel net and hand picking.

Chi-square test was used to compare the difference in snail abundance between the ?doi=ijzr  Monthly mean water velocity ranged from to m/s in the summer, and from to m/s in the winter. Water turbidity records varied; water was clear in April and generally turbid in October.

In Sudan specifically, most studies have focused on the chemical and ecological control of the two genera, but few studies have looked at their biological control.
