Abstract:

The study was undertaken in Bengaluru rural district during 2017-18 to evaluate the design of the inline drip irrigation systems in farmers’ fields. There are 15 farmers’ fields selected for the evaluation. Detailed information of farmers’ was collected from Karnataka state Department of Horticulture. The objective of this study is to evaluate the design of drip irrigation systems. The design of the installed irrigation system is evaluated for the suitability of pump, head loss, horse power, discharge and pressure at 1.00 Kg/cm2 operating pressure. To estimate the friction head loss of drip systems, the Darcy-Weishbach equation for smooth pipes in drip irrigation can be combined with the Blassius equation is used. The informations on existing HP in the fields were collected from individual farmers. Finally, the calculated horsepower and the existing horsepower are compared to know the suitability of power to operate the irrigation system. The results of design evaluation showed that 10 fields having a good operating system and the 5 fields are not capable to operate the system, which results in poor performance of the system.
