Abstract:
Sprinkler irrigation has proved to be an efficient irrigation system compared to conventional methods of irrigation although the initial cost of installation is high. It is crucial to ascertain the performance for minimizing water losses and providing better uniformity. The study was undertaken to evaluate the efficient use of sprinkler irrigation system by farmers. Sixty farmers of 12 villages of three blocks of Mungeli district of Chhattisgarh were randomly selected among the farmers who were given sprinkler irrigation system on subsidy basis. In this study, portable sprinkler system was evaluated based on its hydraulic performance at farmer’s field of Mungeli district of Chhattisgarh plain. A portable sprinkler irrigation system was installed to evaluate of the performance of the sprinkler system in three patterns namely:, uniformity coefficient distribution efficiency and application efficiency. Uniformity measurements were performed using catch can. Test was carried out to determine the performance of portable sprinkler irrigation systems under field conditions. The results of the field performance revealed that the average value uniformity coefficient, distribution uniformity and application efficiency for sprinkler irrigation systems in the study area were observed as 78.30%, 73.12% and 74.41%, respectively indicating satisfactory performance of the sprinkler system. Overall performance parameters of sprinkler irrigation system were in the recommended level. Hence there is potential for the adoption of sprinkler irrigation technology which could increase the yield and the farmer’s income by increasing the extent of cultivation with the available water resource.
