Diagnostic analysis of right main canal command of West Banas irrigation project
Er. Alok Kumar and Dr. Mahesh Kothari
In this study, a diagnostic analysis was carried out to study the operational problems in the West Banas Right Main Canal Irrigation Project. The study concluded that damaged lining or broken wall was found at 24 locations in the Right Main Canal. Two control gates were found tempered or damaged on the starboard main channel. The Kyaria distributary needs to be walled in such a way that farmers in the end parts of the Kyaria distributary can get enough water. A high growth of vegetation was found in the canal at 19 places and on both sides of the canal throughout the network and is damaging the canal lining. The average traffic efficiency of the head, middle and tail sections of the Baroda branch canal was found to be 76.02 percent. Barley with maximum crop water use efficiency values among Rabi crops reaching 62.93 kg/ha-cm. Average values of crop water use efficiency for wheat, gram and mustard were obtained as 44.85 kg/ha-cm, 40.53 kg/ha-cm and 33.90 kg/ha-cm for the period 2013-2018. Field water use efficiency was calculated for Rabi crops from 2013-14 to 2017-18. In 2013-14, barley achieved the highest field water use efficiency value of 41.07 kg/ha-cm followed by wheat (40.81 kg/ha-cm), gram (31.54 kg/ha-cm) and mustard (23, 32a kg/ha). -cm). Garlic has a maximum field water use efficiency value set for all crops in 2014-15 (51.45 kg/ha-cm). In 2015-16, barley used water efficiently and provided the highest field water use efficiency, while mustard achieved the lowest water use capacity.
