Estimating irrigation water requirements accurately is important for water project planning and management also maximum yield per unit water applied should be more efficient use of irrigation water that mean the provision of additional quantities of water to increase the irrigated area with optimum crop production.
A comparative study has been made at Etkhedi and Dhamaniya village, near Bhopal, India which is at Latitude of 23°15ˈ00ˈN and Longitude of 77°25ˈ00ˈE for tomato crop considering four irrigation systems. The first is a surface irrigation system (Furrow irrigation) adopted by farmer, the second one is also a surface irrigation but consider irrigation scheduling, third one is drip irrigation system adopted by farmer and fourth one is a drip irrigation system, designed for the same field. The result concluded that water might have been used efficiently under drip irrigation system. When compared with traditional surface irrigation method adopted by farmer and considering irrigation scheduling for tomato crop.
Drip irrigation system demands least quantity of water as well as minimum cost of water as compared to other system. Water saved in designed drip irrigation system in 37.33%, 65.32% and 68.22% with respect to furrow irrigation (farmer’s method), irrigation scheduling and drip adopted by farmer respectively.
