Water Utilization Research Section

Research Activities

  • Development of effective water saving technology under irrigated rice
  • Development of appropriate water harvesting technology for central dry zone
  • Study of crop and water relationship
  • Screening of drought tolerance crop genotypes with high water use efficiency for plant breeder
  • Testing irrigation water quality and grain quality
  • Production and distribution of soil test kit

Achievements

  • Alternate wetting and drying (AWD) is an appropriate water saving practice in terms of irrigation frequency, water productivity and water saving by 35 – 50 % depend on soil type
  • The critical growth stage to drought stress:

Green gram – pod formation stage

Groundnut – pegging stage

Sesame – flowering stage

  • Corn yield of zero tillage and crop residue mulching practice at postmonsoon season showed 30% higher than conventional tillage.
  • Gliricidia wind break plantation improve soil moisture and give plant nutrient from the plant’s residue. Therefore, this practices increase 10 – 12 % of yield.
