Irrigation management on the Indo-Gangetic plain by D. J. W. Berkoff Download PDF EPUB FB2

This paper reviews irrigation management on the Indo-Gangetic plain. It focuses on water distribution in individual schemes rather than basin-wide, though questions of basin management and inter-state / international relations must clearly over-ride any advantage in a particular scheme.

The Indo-Gangetic plain contains perhaps 40% of the population of India and 50% of its irrigated area. In the West (Punjab, Haryana) it covers one of India's most productive regions, in the East (Biha, West Bengal) one of its least productive.

This paper argues that the relative success of irrigated agriculture in the West and relative failure in the East can be largely attributed to Cited by: The Indo-Gangetic Plain, also known as the Indus-Ganga Plain and the North Indian River Plain, is a million-acre (million km 2) fertile plain encompassing northern regions of the Indian subcontinent, including most of northern and eastern India, the eastern parts of Pakistan, virtually all of Bangladesh and southern plains of Nepal.

The region is named after the Indus and the Ganges. Conservation Agriculture: Perspectives on Soil and Environmental Management in Indo-Gangetic Plains of South Asia Chapter (PDF Available) October with Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Sapkota and his team found that CA could provide better methods of farming wheat and rice in the Indo-Gangetic plains. CA could reduce production costs by up to 23 per cent without compromising on the yield and improve irrigation water productivity by 66— per cent as compared to.

Management of cereal crop residues for sustainable rice-wheat production system in the Indo Gangetic Plains of India. Proc Indian natn Sci Acad 1 Sollins, P; Homann P and Caldwell, B A;   This study was undertaken to assess farmers preferences and willingness to pay (WTP) for various climate-smart interventions in the Indo-Gangetic Plain.

The research outputs will be helpful in integrating farmers choices with government programs in the selected regions. The Indo-Gangetic Plain (IGP) was selected because it is highly vulnerable to climate change, which may adversely affect the. Water contamination is often reported in agriculturally intensive areas such as the Indo-Gangetic Plain (IGP) in south-eastern Asia.

We evaluated the impact of the organic and conventional farming of basmati rice on water quality during the rainy season (July to October) of and at Kaithal, Haryana, India.

The study area comprised seven organic and seven conventional fields where. Downloadable (with restrictions). Summary "Getting prices right" is the silver bullet widely advocated to developing countries in fighting waste, misallocation and scarcity of water.

In the vast, poverty-stricken Indo-Gangetic basin, however, high surrogate water price is driving out small-holder irrigation. With rising diesel prices, most small-holders who use borewells for irrigation find.

The Ganges and its all tributaries, especially the Yamuna, have been used for irrigation since ancient times.

Dams and canals were common in gangetic plain by fourth century BCE. [90] The Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna basin has a huge hydroelectric potential, on the order oftomegawatts, nearly half of which could easily be harnessed.⁃ coordinates: 30°59′N 78°55′E / °N °E.

Hence this arcuate (curved) plain is also known as Indo-Gangetic-Brahmaputra Plain. Features of Indo – Gangetic – Brahmaputra Plain. Indo-Gangetic-Brahmaputra Plain is the largest alluvial tract of the world.

It stretches for about 3, km from the mouth of the Indus to the mouth of the Ganga. Indian sector of the plain accounts for 2, km.

India. Indo-Gangetic Plain. In social and economic terms, the Indo-Gangetic Plain is the most important region of India. The plain is a great alluvial crescent stretching from the Indus River system in Pakistan to the Punjab Plain (in both Pakistan and India) and the Haryana Plain to the delta of the Ganga (or Ganges) in Bangladesh (where it is called the Padma).

Rice and wheat together have an evapotranspiration demand of about mm and water requirement of about mm. In this part of the trans Indo-Gangetic plain, where rainfall is about mm, large amount of water has to be supplied through surface water from canals and groundwater pumped through shallow tubewell (depth Cited by: Fertilizer N applied at a time when crop needs are high, reduces the chances of losses of N from the soil-plant system, thus, improving N use efficiency.

Reduction in losses of 15N applied as urea to wheat in the Indo-gangetic plain through synchronization with irrigation events has. Downloadable (with restrictions). Abstract Groundwater irrigation and energy played an important role in increasing agricultural production and food security in India; however, declining groundwater levels result in an increase of energy consumption and CO2 emission for lifting water.

This, in the future, is expected to influence groundwater development and usage policy in by: 5. Indo-Gangetic Plain. In social and economic terms, the Indo-Gangetic Plain is the most important region of India.

Agricultural policy in the s and s focused on food security through increased coverage of high-yielding varieties. This enabled rice (Oryza sativa L.)-wheat (Triticum aestivum L. and T. durum Desf.) to emerge as a major cropping system in the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP), ushering in the Green Revolution (GR).The GR technologies have remained the cornerstone of the South Asian.

The Upper Ganga plain is a vast stretch of the Indo-Gangetic Plains, where the rivers play an important role and have a definite influence over the area. In general, the soil of the region is alluvial but variations exist in the upland and lowland areas.

Containing eight chapters, the book starts with a discussion about the methodological aspects of priority setting of the farm technologies across various regions of South Asia including Eastern Indo-Gangetic plain, Western Indo-Gangetic Plain and arid regions.

About this book. One of the key features of agricultural development in the last five decades has been intensive groundwater use in the Indo-Gangetic Basin (Pakistan, India, Nepal and Bangladesh) and in the Yellow River Basin (China). In fact, the problem is spread across the Indo-Gangetic Plain (IGP) region and experts say an airshed approach is required to tackle the problem if the NCAP target of a 25% reduction in PM Areas that receive intensive groundwater‐based irrigation are located in the Indo‐Gangetic Plain, northwestern, central, and western parts of India (Figure 1).

More remarkably, a few regions (western India and Indo‐Gangetic Plain) have more than 90% of their area irrigated with groundwater by: 3.
