Abstract:

The study was conducted under the domain of four districts viz., Chhotaudepur, Dahod, Botad and Kheda districts. A random sample of 200 drip adopted farmers was taken for study. The study reveals that required time-to-time attention for minor repairs (92.50 per cent) as most important constraint and occupied first position within the category. Followed by frequent clogging of drippers and micro tubes (89.50 per cent), lack of technical know-how (86.50 per cent), Problem of rate, pig, roz (84.00 per cent), Improper pressure hinders discharge rate (78.00 per cent), problems of water leakage in the DIS (75.00 per cent), proper water pressure maintain (71.00 per cent), Spare parts of drip irrigation system are costly (67.00 per cent). Majority of the drip adopted farmers endorsed suggestions for training should be imparted for betterment of knowledge/skill to use the system efficiently and effectively (95.50 per cent), provisions of regular guidance on maintenance and free service from company agents (93.00 per cent) and at least five years guarantee against DIS sets should be provided by company (85.50 per cent), The next notable suggestions given were, spare parts of the system should be available locally at reasonable rates (79.50 per cent). The other suggestions were and technical know-bow of the system should be provided through combination of media (73.00 per cent). Half of the drip adopted farmers (50.00 per cent) suggested for use of DIS in day-time.
