Abstract:

The study on rain water balance of micro catchments under fingermillet cropping system of alfisols was carried out at the AICRPDA, GKVK, UAS Bangalore to work out the rain water balance in response to different soil and water conservation measures with varied slopes viz., 1.9 %, 2.24 % and 2.1 %. The total rainfall and ET crop during the finger millet cropping period was 604 mm and 250.98 mm respectively. The lowest and the highest runoff were observed in T1 and T4 respectively. Also the highest deep percolation was observed in T1. In general the study reveals a negative water balance for the finger millet crop during the year under study.
