Measurement of Infiltration on Different Land Covers
The field experiment was conducted on the farm of Krishi Vighyan Kendra, near the College of Agricultural Engineering and Technology Jalgoan (Ja) for Measurement of Infiltration on Different Land Covers. The measure of infiltration of water into the soil is an important indication concerning: the efficiency of irrigation and drainage optimizing the availability of the water for plant improving the yield of the crop and minimizing the erosion.
Infiltration is an important parameter in irrigation planning. Study was undertaken to measure the infiltration on different land covers. Infiltration was measured by double ring infiltrometer and developed the infiltration equations, also determined the different properties of soil on cultivated land cover and bared land covers. It was found that for cultivated land cover, the average infiltration rate was 6.06 cm/hr and 4.34 cm/hr for bared land cover.
The average moisture content, bulk density and field capacity was found to be 16.49%, 1.71 gm/cc and 26.23% respectively for cultivated land cover. Also the average moisture content, bulk density and field capacity was found to be 11.7%, 1.59 gm/cc and 29.55% respectively for bared land cover.
