    Feasibility Studies on Rain gun Method of Irrigation System in Groundnut
    Author(s): Praveen Kumar*, K. Bhanu Pradeep, S.G. Farida Begum, K. Ashok Kumar and P. Sumathi

    A field study was conducted on groundnut by using different irrigation techniques, such as raingun, check basin and sprinkler irrigation systems. Irrigation is mainly a branch of engineering as it involves construction and maintenance storage and distribution works. In our country, raingun method of irrigation is becoming more popular for sugarcane due to convince in shifting. Sufficient formation such as coefficient of discharge, percentage of overlapped diameter for uniformity, etc is not available for designing the raingun system. The medium volume rainguin model was operated at different operating pressures of 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0 kg/cm2with 14 mm diameter nozzle. The discharge is found increasing with increase in pressure head for raingun of nozzle size 14 mm is 3 kg/cm2. It was observed that increase in pressure increased the discharge of medium volume raingun .. Read More»
