Every drop of water Save Water Preserv ation Conserv ation Utiliza tion &
PREPARED BY:- KAD Administration IRRIGATION DEPTT. GOVT. OF PUNJAB
CAUSED BY;- Irregular pattern of seasons. Depleting ground water. Unauthorized and wasteful use of available water. IMPACTS;- Growing crops becomes costlier. Expansion in Command Area is minimized. Crops requiring more water need to be abandoned.
Tapping of water in seasonal rivulets by constructing series of low dams.
Save Energy Save Water Increase Revenue The research goes on……………
Controlled conduct of irrigation supplies along hill slopes- To generate maximum possible hydraulic heads, useful in increasing the crop yield up to 170% Lift Irrigation Sprinkler Irrigation Drip irrigation
The natural slopes in semi - hilly areas of kandi belt can be fruitfully utilised for generation of sufficient heads for irrigation facility. Larger gravity heads suitable to induce sprinkler and drip systems of irrigation are proposed to be made available by innovative design of piped irrigation deliverance system. The highlight of this system is that no artificial generation of heads is required and the system runs WITHOUT ANY USE OF ELECTRICITY.
1. Expenses on electricity is NIL. 2. No electrification needed in the area. 3. Land used in field water courses saved and brought under cultivation. 4. Increase in command area by 50 to 70 % by way of saving in water. 5. Increase in agricultural yield up to 60%. 6. General uplift of the area and living standards of the community. 7. Increase in revenue to the state. 8. Additional food reserves for the state. 9. Boosting of economy.
