Water is the most limiting factor in most of the agricultural regions in India. Due to fast economic growth and urbanization, the competition for existing limited water resources for agricultural, domestic and industrial needs are increasing considerably. Therefore, it is essential to develop an efficient and reliable irrigation management technique in order to optimize crop production under limited water resources. The improper irrigation management practices not only waste expensive money but also decreases the marketable yield, quality, irrigation production and water use efficiency, as well as the economic return. It even increases water logging and salinity problems, which can only be corrected by expensive drainage system. Results are given of a study on the design and computation of conveyance losses of trapezoidal and rectangular open-lined channels in Caet, Etawah, Uttar Pradesh, India.
