Sustainability of Indian agriculture to ensure intensified crop production for nourishing the ever increasing population needs enough availability and supply of irrigation water. But water resources are decreasing rapidly and it has become necessary to save it as much as possible for the future. So as to produce more crops per drop of water, the immediate adoption of water saving interventions like micro, drip, sprinkler and furrow irrigations at critical crop growth stages, mulching and ring-pit or specialized planting etc. that can enhance irrigation water use efficiency per m3 of water by 1.5 to 2.5 times under different farming systems are most required at farmer fields. Good agricultural practices of managing and conserving soil fertility; reducing land, water and environment degradation; scheduling irrigation and harvesting of rainwater, treated sewage water and re-use thereof, and controlling water losses in distribution systems are other important measures for increasing water use efficiency. Water seepage and percolation; soil depth and texture; evaporation from open fields, water sources, evapo-transpiration from crops; design of irrigation structures; the season, climate and effective rainfall patterns, methods of water application and its flow, size of irrigation area, its leveling and gradient, and crop types, their stand & conditions are other important factors affecting water use efficiency. Among methods of water application, the widely practiced technique of basin or flood irrigation causes more than 50% water loss. Furthermore, the irrigation network efficiencies are only 60-70% in most of the agricultural schemes of our country. Excessive or over irrigation, without proper drainage network, raises underground water level, leading to increased salinity and lower agricultural productivity. Waterlogged and soil salinity conditions under canal command system have become prevalent in some areas of Haryana. In view of these facts, farmers of our state need to adopt latest irrigation techniques like drip and micro sprinkler irrigation systems prominently to save water for irrigating additional area to grow more crops and to prevent the soil degradation. Haryana government is also providing subsidy support of 50-80% to farmers both for pipes-equipments and construction of small individual to large community water storage ponds for this purpose. Drip irrigation, which can be laid out effectively for all crops, improves water use efficiency up to 70 to 90% saving at least 25-30% water in rice-wheat cropping system. It is the most effective way of applying water, and nutrients together directly in the root zone. It increases uniformity of fertilizers and micronutrients application along with yield of the crops. Added advantages include uniform distribution of water even on undulated and un-leveled land along with lesser weed infestation and disease incidence. It is high time to make concerted efforts for saving of the precious water resource on the mother planet-Earth.
