Abstract:

This paper reflects the use of newer technologies Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographical Information System (GIS) which play important role in monitoring canal water distribution and its management, cropping pattern identification and geomorphology characterisation of command area. The conjunctive use of surface and groundwater resources aims to harness maximum quantity of water to achieve optimal utilization of total water resources in a canal command area for maximum agricultural productivity. The command area of distributary no.21is situated in Arang block of Raipur district and located between 21000’00”and 21015’00” N latitudes and 81045’00” and 82000’00” E longitudes with 311m to 262 m above mean sea level. False colour composite (FCC) of IRS-P6 LISS IV geocoded data and survey of India (SOI) toposheet on (1:50000) scale were studied in conjunction to extract various information of the distributary command area. Existing land use/land cover, slope, relief aspect, and physiography for characterization and soil texture map was prepared using the data collected and interaction with farmers of study area.Based on the preparation and overlaying of various thematic maps, along with analysis of Agrometeorological, Hydrological & Geomorphological data, four farming situation, as per the local names of soil texture type viz. Bhata,Matasi, Dorsa, Kanhar were identified, characterized and mapped based on the soil sampling analysis and peoples participating research interaction of the village. It was found that command area is drained by network of two main streams, Sakti Nala and Shangari Nala; and paddy was cultivated on 98% area of command area.
