QUESTION: 2

During a particular stage of the growth of a crop, consumptive use of water is 28 mm/day. If the amount of water available in the soil is 25% of 80 mm depth of water, what is the frequency of irrigation?

Solution:

Water available to the soil

Additional water required

= 80 – 20 = 60 mm

Frequency of irrigation

Thus the crop should be irrigated after every 21 days.

QUESTION: 3

In a canal irrigation project, 76% of the culturable command area (CCA) remained without water during kharif season and 58% of CCA remained without water during Rabi season in a particular year, Rest of the area got irrigated in each crop , respectively. What is the intensity of irrigation for the project in the year?

Solution:

Area irrigated under Rabi = 42%

Area irrigated under Kharif = 24%

Intensity of irrigation =66%

QUESTION: 21

A water course commands an irrigated are 1000 hectares. The intensity of irrigation of rice in this area is 70%. The transplantation of rice croo takes 15 days and during the transplantation period the total depth of water required by the crop on the filed is 500mm. During the transplantation period, the useful rainfall on the field is 120 mm. Find the duty of irrigation water for the crop at the head of water course assuming losses of water to be 20% in the water course _____ hectares/ cumec

Solution:

Depth of water required on the field during transplantation = 500 mm

Useful rainfall during this period = 120 mm

Depth of water required to be supplied by the water Course
