Irrigation

  1. 1. Presented by:Uzzal Kumar HalderStd. No.: 0716028
  2. 2. Outline of presentation• DEFINITION• HISTORY OF IRRIGATION• PRESENT EXTENT OF IRRIGATION• PERCENTAGE OF IRRIGATION• TYPES OF IRRIGATION• IRRIGATION IN CONTEXT OF BANGLADESH.
  3. 3. 1. Irrigation is an artificial application of waterto the soil2. It is usually used to assist in growing crops indry areas and during periods of inadequaterainfall
  4. 4. Additionally, irrigation also has afew other uses in crop production,which include :1.protecting plants against frost,2.suppressing weed growing ingrain fields3.helping in preventing soilconsolation
  5. 5. HISTORY OF IRRIGATION• In the Zana Valley of Peru, archaeologists found remains of three irrigation canals radiocarbon dated from the 4th millennium BCE, the 3rd millennium BCE and the 9th century CE.• These canals are the earliest record of irrigation in the New World.
  6. 6. Animal-powered irrigation, Upper Egypt, ca.1840
  7. 7. Irrigation systems were developed in Indian Sub-continent by :• The Indus Valley Civilization in Pakistan and North India.• The reservoirs at Girnar in 3000 BCE.• An early canal irrigation system from circa 2600 BCE.
  8. 8. An example of irrigation system common in Indian subcontinent
  9. 9. PRESENT EXTENT OF IRRIGATION#2,788,000 km² of agricultural land was equipped with irrigation infrastructure.#The largest contiguous areas of high irrigation density are found in North India and Pakistan along the rivers Ganges.
  10. 10. PERCENTAGE OF IRRIGATION IN THE WORLD EUROPE AFRICA OCENIA 5% 1% 9% AMERICA 17% ASIA 68%
  11. 11. TYPES OFIRRIGATION
  12. 12. TYPES OF IRRIGATION:• Surface irrigation• Center pivot irrigation• Lateral move irrigation• Localized irrigation
  13. 13. • Water moves over and across the land by gravity flow in order to wet it and to infiltrate into the soil.• Often called flood irrigation.• Historically, this has been the most common method of irrigating agricultural land.• This method of irrigating is covered above 70% land in our country.
  14. 14. SURFACE IRRIGATION
  15. 15. Surface irrigation can be subdivided into two types.• Border Strips or Basin Flood: – Strips of land with dikes on the sides – Usually graded but with no cross slope – Downstream end may be diked• Furrow: – Small channels carry the water (entire surface is not wet) – Commonly used on row crops – Lateral as well as vertical infiltration – Furrows are usually graded
  16. 16. Basin flood irrigation of rice
  17. 17. Basin flood irrigation of wheat
  18. 18. Irrigation of the land in Punjab, Pakistan
  19. 19. Furrow irrigation before Water is Added
  20. 20. Furrow irrigation after Water is Added
  21. 21. Furrow irrigation of Crops
  22. 22. WATER SUPPLY• Methods of water supply – Head ditch with siphon tubes or side- opening gates – Gated pipe (aluminum or plastic pipe with small gates that can be opened and closed) – Buried pipeline with periodically spaced valves at the surface
  23. 23. CENTER PIVOT IRRIGATION
  24. 24. CENTER PIVOT IRRIGATION:• Is a form of sprinkler irrigation.• Consisting of several segments of pipe (usually galvanized steel or aluminum) joined together and supported by trusses.• Mounted on wheeled towers with sprinklers.• System moves in a circular pattern.• These systems are common in parts of the United States where terrain is flat.
  25. 25. Center pivot with drop sprinklers in USA
  26. 26. The hub of a center-pivot irrigation system.
  27. 27. LATERAL MOVE IRRIGATION
  28. 28. LATERAL MOVE IRRIGATION:• A series of pipes, each with a wheel is affixed to its midpoint and sprinklers along its length.• Water is supplied at one end using a large hose.• After sufficient water has been applied, the hose is removed.• The hose is reconnected.• The process is repeated until the opposite edge of the field is reached.
  29. 29. LATERAL MOVE IRRIGATION:• This system is less expensive to install.• Much more labor intensive to operate.• It is limited in the amount of water it can carry.• They are most often used for small or oddly-shaped fields, such as those found in hilly or mountainous regions, or in regions where labor is inexpensive.

  31. 31. LOCALIZED IRRIGATION
  32. 32. LOCALIZED IRRIGATION:• Water is distributed under low pressure through a piped network.• Applied as a small discharge to each plant or adjacent to it. IT MAY BE DIFFERENT KINDS: 1.Drip irrigation 2.Sprinkler irrigation 3.bubbler irrigation
  33. 33. DRIP IRRIGATION1.Drip irrigation, also known as trickle irrigation, functions as its name suggests.2.Water is delivered at or near the root zone of plants, drop by drop.3.This method can be the most water-efficient method of irrigation, if managed properly, since evaporation and runoff are minimized.4.In modern agriculture, drip irrigation is often combined with plastic mulch, further reducing evaporation, and is also the means of delivery of fertilizer.
  34. 34. Drip Irrigation - A dripper in action
  35. 35. Drip Irrigation Layout and its parts
  36. 36. Advantages of Drip Irrigation• Delivers water slowly.• Minimizes water loss due to runoff.• Useful in windy areas.• Less evaporation.• Less splash that may spread fungal.• spores, bacteria to other plants.
  37. 37. IRRIGATION IN CONTEXT OF BANGLADESH
  38. 38. • The most common system of Irrigation in our country is Surface Irrigation.• About 70% water source is Groundwater.• It is two types by its mechanism. 1.Traditional Irrigation. 2.Manual Pump Irrigation. 3.Power Pump Irrigation
  39. 39. Location map Irrigation scene using Doon (traditional irrigation facilities)
  40. 40. Traditional Irrigation.
  41. 41. Manual Pump Irrigation
  42. 42. Power Pump Irrigation
  43. 43. Power Pump Irrigation
  44. 44. Power Pump Irrigation
  45. 45. Problems Generated by Irrigation
  46. 46. 1.The maximum irrigation is occuring inthe North-west zone of Bangladesh & thegroundwater level is decreasing day byday in this zone.
  47. 47. Areas which use maximum Groundwater
  48. 48. 2.Excess irrigation causes Arseniccontamination which may causegreat disaster in future.3.Excess irrigation can influenceEarthquake.
  49. 49. Occurrence of arsenic in groundwater (BGS, 1999)
  50. 50. WHAT SHOULD WE DO ?
  51. 51. • We have to use effective Irrigation system.• We have to reduce Water wastage.• In this context bucket drip Irrigation is so Effective.
  52. 52. Bucket Bucket Drip IrrigationFilter Kits: •Filter screen Stand •Water Supply Line Water Supply Lines •Drip Line Need to add: •Bucket Drip Lines •Stand •Plants
  53. 53. •Look forwet spots•Mark them•Place plantswhere thereis a drip
  54. 54. Can also flush the lines This is done by opening the ends of the drip lines and pouring clean water through it.
  55. 55. So we use……Such kind of structures that can reduce wastage of Water.
  56. 56. Thank You
