Abstract:

The ever increasing population growth rate has compelled to maximize food production per unit of water used, as water is major resource for agricultural production. The micro irrigation system has now become indispensible for increase in crop production as water is directly applied to the root zone of the plant. Thus micro irrigation minimizes conventional losses due to deep percolation, runoff and soil evaporation and also permits the effective utilization of fertilizers, pesticides and other water soluble chemicals along with irrigation water with better crop response. A perfect design of trickle irrigation requires knowledge of water distribution pattern in soil. The moisture distribution pattern will determine effectiveness of drip irrigation system in field conditions. One of the important parameter affecting water distribution to the plant in the field condition is hydraulic characteristics of drip irrigation system, therefore, it is essential to understand hydraulic performance of drip irrigation system in relation to soil moisture distribution.
