If you want to save in sugarcane irrigation then this mobile app will help.
Sugarcane cultivation provides the basis of our rural economy. For this, adequate and timely irrigation is necessary along with other measures to get maximum yield of sugarcane from every field. Seeing the beneficial effect of irrigation on sugarcane production in most areas, farmers keep applying water in large amounts frequently and in excessive amounts. This results in loss of both water and irrigation expenditure.
By saving water in sugarcane cultivation, besides environmental protection, there is an opportunity to promote other economic activities. For this purpose, this mobile app “Ikshu Kedar” has been developed by ICAR-Indian Sugarcane Research Institute, Lucknow on the basis of scientific calculations, targeting remunerative yield in sugarcane crop for North Indian climate. By its use, the date of next irrigation in sugarcane crop is known, which saves unnecessary irrigation repeated.
The interval between two irrigations will be different for the sugarcane crop sown in different seasons, so the date of sowing of sugarcane and the date of last irrigation must be mentioned. This app has been designed keeping in mind the weather conditions of North Indian states in general conditions of sugarcane cultivation. Its use is not recommended in special conditions such as saline or alkaline soils, waterlogged areas and areas with very heavy or sandy soils.
Farmers can download the app in Google Play Store, that too absolutely free.
