Abstract:

Micro irrigation systems endow lot of water saving for future crop and expand the land under cultivation with sustains the soil healthy for sustainable growth towards achieving growing food grain demand. Keeping this, the present on-farm trial was conducted in a farmer field of Gumthala Garhu village of Kurukshethra district, Haryana state. For assessment of rice yield, three different irrigation methods viz. drip, sprinkler and flood irrigation methods were adapted. The experiment was tested with PR 126 rice variety. The results revealed that rice grain yield (6950 kg ha-1) was significantly increased by drip irrigation method compared to flood irrigation (6225 kg ha-1) method. Sprinkler irrigation method gave a lower yield. Also, drip irrigation method of paddy cultivation was recorded considerable higher water use efficiency (17.1 kg ha mm-1) followed by sprinkler method (11.5 kg ha mm-1). Consistently, due to higher yield, higher net return was showed in drip irrigation method.
