Test: Duty and Delta of a Crop - Question 1

### What is the time interval between two consecutive watering called?

Detailed Solution for Test: Duty and Delta of a Crop - Question 1

Every type of crop requires different amount of water for its complete growth in certain fixed intervals of time. The time interval between two consecutive intervals is called a rotation period.

Test: Duty and Delta of a Crop - Question 2

### Find the delta for a crop if the duty for a base period of 110 days is 1400 hectares/cumec.

Detailed Solution for Test: Duty and Delta of a Crop - Question 2

Duty: It is the number of hectares of land irrigated for full growth of a given crop by a supply of 1 cumec of water continuously during the entire base period of that crop.
Delta: The total water depth required by a crop to attain its full maturity in its base period.
Base Period: The time period that elapsed for the instant of the showing of crop to the instant of its harvesting is called base period or crop period.
The relation between Duty (D), Delta (Δ) and Base period (B) is given as:

Calculation:
Given data,
B = 110 days
D = 1400 hectares/cumec
Hence, the delta for a crop

Δ = 0.678 m = 68 cm

Test: Duty and Delta of a Crop - Question 3

### The delta of a crop is 0.864 m and the base period is 130 days. What is the duty of the crop (in hectares/cumec)?

Detailed Solution for Test: Duty and Delta of a Crop - Question 3

Duty: It is the number of hectares of land irrigated for full growth of a given crop by a supply of 1 cumec of water continuously during the entire base period of that crop.
Delta: The total water depth required by a crop to attain its full maturity in its base period.
Base Period: The time period that elapsed for the instant of the showing of crop to the instant of its harvesting is called base period or crop period.
The relation between Duty in hectares/cumec (D), Delta in meter (Δ) and Base period in days (B) is given as:

Calculation:
Given data,
B = 130 days
Δ = 0.864 m
Hence, the delta for a crop

D = 1300 hectares/cumec

Test: Duty and Delta of a Crop - Question 4

Find the delta for a crop when its duty is 1728 hectares/cumec on the field, the base period for the crop is 240 days.

Detailed Solution for Test: Duty and Delta of a Crop - Question 4

The relation between Duty (D), Delta (Δ), and Base period (B) is given as:

Calculation:
Base period (B) = 240 days
Duty (D) = 1728 hec/cumec

Δ = 1.2 m = 120 cm

Test: Duty and Delta of a Crop - Question 5

What is the delta for a crop when its duty is 864 hectares/cumec on the field and the base period of the same crop is 140 days?

Detailed Solution for Test: Duty and Delta of a Crop - Question 5

Duty: It is the number of hectares of land irrigated for full growth of a given crop by a supply of 1 cumec of water continuously during the entire base period of that crop.
Delta: The total water depth required by a crop to attain its full maturity in its base period.
Base Period: The time period that elapsed for the instant of the showing of crop to the instant of its harvesting is called base period or crop period.
The relation between Duty (D), Delta (Δ) and Base period (B) is given as:

Δ = 1.4 m = 140 cm

Test: Duty and Delta of a Crop - Question 6

What is the delta for a crop when its duty is 864 hectares/cumec on the field and the base period of this crop is 120 days?

Detailed Solution for Test: Duty and Delta of a Crop - Question 6

Relation between Delta (Δ), Duty (D), and Base period (B) is given by:

Where
Δ is in cm, D is in hectares per cumec, and B is in days
Calculation:
Given data,
D = 864 hectares/cumecs
B = 120 days
The delta for a crop

Test: Duty and Delta of a Crop - Question 7

What is total depth of water, for complete growth of crop called?
