Flood Irrigation

Flood water system is an age-old technique for irrigating crops. It was likely the main type of water system utilized by people as they started developing crops and yet a standout amongst the most regular techniques for water system utilized today.

Simply, water is delivered to the field by channels, pipe, or some different means and water just stream over the ground to the crop. Despite the fact that flood water system is a viable strategy for the water system, but it is positively not proficient compared to different alternatives. With flood water system it is generally expected that lone portion of the water connected really winds up flooding the crop. The other half is lost to vanishing, spillover, penetration of uncultivated zones, and transpiration through the leaves of weeds.

In spite of the fact that flood water system will never be as productive as different sorts of water system there are a few procedures that can be utilized to enhance its proficiency:

Leveling fields – on the grounds that water is transported utilizing gravity it won't achieve high spots in the field

Surge flooding – instead of discharging water at the same time it is discharged in interims enabling each discharge to invade the channels before discharging extra water.

Reusing overflow – water that keeps running off the end and sides of the inundated is caught in low-lying zones and pumped to the highest point of the field where it can be reused.

It is regular, for farmers to discharge water until the point when the whole field is filled. By flooding the whole field at the same time, farmers neglect to exploit the capillary movement of water through the dirt, especially in clay soils. These outcomes in overflow, anaerobic conditions in the dirt and around the root zone, and profound water system underneath the root zone that is inaccessible to the plants.

Typical model of flood irrigation

Field Preparation: Trench of 18 inches or 1.5 feet width and 6 inches deep should be dug along the limit(boundaries). Beds of 7 feet width must be made trailed by a trench of two feet width and 6 inches depth.The soil taken out from the trenches is to be spread equitably on the bed. The height of this 7 feet bed is somewhat raised. Keeping in mind the end goal to make it more fertile, some farmyard manure or pond sediment can be added to the bed. The plot is currently prepared with rich microbial colonies and nutrient supplements. Extra water flows into the channels from that point into the pond at last.

Five Layer Shri Palekar Ji Model - 36*36 model for full 1 acre

Huge trees, for example, Mango, Jack-fruit, Jamun, and Amla ought to be planted 36 feet separated.
Guava, Chikku, Lemon and Pomegranate saplings can be planted in the middle of the mango plants at a separation of 18 feet.
Papaya, Drum-stick, Banana that involve lesser space ought to be planted in a space of 9 feet between the second arrangement of trees recorded previously. The above plants ought to be planted along a similar column over the plot of land leaving space to develop a single assortment of vegetables, millets and so forth on each bed.
separate 1 section of land into a break even with squares of 36ft X 36ft. In each piece of 36 ft x 36 ft ( which is additionally separated into four 9ft X 9ft sub-squares) We can grow around 170 trees, in that 9ft x 9 ft part of the land (one sub-square). Plant 1 Banana Tree, 4 Arecanut Trees, 4 Black pepper Creepers getting on Arecanut trees, 2 Coffee Plants, 2 Glirsedia Trees, 2 Venella Creepers hopping on Glirsedia trees and 32 Ginger Plants …

Dhabolkar method of green manuring

Mr.Dhabolkar, an organic farming expert in Maharashtra, has proved the efficacy of green manure method, which helps to return to the soil many times more nutrients than what we take from that same soil. The first step, therefore, to enrich the soil organically is to grow a variety of crops on the land and then plough the green matter back into the soil. Using this method it is possible to enrich the depleted soil in just two hundred days. Even land that has been depleted of all nutrients due to chemical farming can be resuscitated in this manner.By growing the following crops for 50-60 days and then ploughing them in-situ we add balanced nutrients and micro-nutrients to the land. The soil will become enriched in less than a year and micro-nutrient deficiency is eliminated.

The following quantities will suffice for one acre.
Choose four of each of the following types:(One from category total five)

1. Grains: 5Kg (Example: 1 kg Sorghum, 500 gms Pearl millet, 250 gms Foxtail millet, 250 gms …

Navadhanya Cropping System

NAVADHANYA has not introduced by anybody from his/her own experiences and knowledge. It has evolved, by following the climatic conditions; district farmers were cultivated dryland agriculture in the district. With the erratic rainfall every year the farmers are facing drought in the district. Even though in erratic rainfall also the dry land agriculture is sustained in the district during the past. With experiences in their life, the cropping system was evolved as NAVADHANYA a dryland agriculture system in the district. The NAVA DHANYA is an intercropping system in dryland agriculture. It has evolved to sustain crops in erratic rainfall by the farmer’s experiments. And also, it has evolved the system for trapping erratic rainfall and utilizing 100% to the crops. So, the farmers used the system as net of erratic rainfall in drought-prone areas for protecting at least 2/3 of the crops in their fields. The cropping system will keep the land greenery for 10 months in a year. So, the syste…
