Abstract:

Land use cropping pattern are altering the hydrologic system and have potentially large impacts on water resources. The present study aims at analyzing the impact of various cropping patterns on water quality parameters of rivers located at Pantnagar, for a duration of three months from August, 2017 to October, 2017. Three sites Barour (S1), Beni (S2) and Chakpheri (S3) were selected which exhibits different cropping pattern in their catchment area i. e. Paddy (Oryza sativa), Dhaincha (Sesbania bispinosa) and Maize (Zea mays) respectively. Study concludes that variation in cropping pattern exhibits changes in the water quality parameters of their respective riverine ecosystem. So, to manage our water quality parameters we should perform integrated management along with agriculture sector.
