The study on "Technological constraints of canal irrigation system of coastal command in Kendrapara district of Orissa" was undertaken to find out the technological constraints of canal irrigation system by water users. An attempt was made to secure their responses about judicious use of canal water and to identify the various technological constraints perceived by them about canal irrigation system in the area of investigation. Kendrapara Block and four villages in it, were selected purposively, whereas the respondents were selected by random sampling method. The major findings of the study were: (1) ninety one percent of the farmers opined that excess and shortage of canal water to plots in close proximity and those at a distance from the irrigation channels (2) lack of irrigation responsive varieties.(3) The requirement of water at critical stage of growth is inadequate,.(4) water management in nursery bed difficult due to scarcity as well as excess of water.(5) alternate irrigation is not possible.(6) soil reclamation is not possible. The most important suggestion given by the respondents was canal water should be released at the time of requirement.

Abstract


The study on "Technological constraints of canal irrigation system of coastal command in Kendrapara district of Orissa" was undertaken to find out the technological constraints of canal irrigation system by water users. An attempt was made to secure their responses about judicious use of canal water and to identify the various technological constraints perceived by them about canal irrigation system in the area of investigation. Kendrapara Block and four villages in it, were selected purposively, whereas the respondents were selected by random sampling method. The major findings of the study were: (1) ninety one percent of the farmers opined that excess and shortage of canal water to plots in close proximity and those at a distance from the irrigation channels (2) lack of irrigation responsive varieties.(3) The requirement of water at critical stage of growth is inadequate,.(4) water management in nursery bed difficult due to scarcity as well as excess of water.(5) alternate irrigation is not possible.(6) soil reclamation is not possible. The most important suggestion given by the respondents was canal water should be released at the time of requirement.
