Abstract:
The performance of the Nagpur minor canal (Hirapur and Nagpur village, Block-Baliata, Bhubaneswar Odisha) irrigation system was evaluated during the Rabi season of 2018-19 under the four crops viz. ground nut, pointed gourd, sesame and bitter gourd grown in the command area. The irrigation water requirements for those four crops were calculated using Hargreaves method. The water requirements of these crops viz. groundnut, pointed gourd, sesame and bitter gourd were found to be 45cm, 30cm, 69cm and 58cm, respectively. The performance indicators values in terms of adequacy, equity and relative water supply were computed as 0.31, 0.69 & 0.74 respectively. These values reflect the poor performance of Nagpur minor canal irrigation system. This investigation aimed at improving the capacity of selected minor for proper utilization of canal delivery water and efficient water management for crop production.
