Hope you are doing well. Sorry for lengthy post. But needed to explain situation. Request your advice for putting up drip system in my land.
I do not have bore well. But there is a year round water from channel for agriculture. My 3 acre land is divided into 2 pieces. 1 1/2 acre on either side of the road. One piece ( two photos named land1) has gradual slope. This itself divided into 4 bits. There is a rise of 5 feet for each bit( last bit 20 ft from road level). In photo ‘land1 top to bottom’ you can see channel running all along length on left side.
Land 2 is mostly flat. But it is not yet ready …as i need to put more soil to level it.
Idea to take water from channel for drip. So i want to build krishi honda(farm pond) for storing water. Then take it from there for drip. I am thinking if it is better to build this at the top most bit and pump it down(not sure if gravity itself is sufficient Or build at bottom and pump up(this way i can do rain water harvesting). I think building it at bottom of land 1 would allow me to use drip for land 2 also ( By laying pipe under road to land2)
Please have a look and suggest. I am will initially start with green manure crop to enrich soil…meanwhile setup drip and then will plant papaya & Banana by oct-Nov. Thank you.
