A portable rainfall simulation system of 3.4 m and 1.4 m size has been developed by using hypodermic needles at 20cmx 20cm spacing to conduct field level studies under simulated rainfall conditions. The developed rainfall simulator produced intensity of simulated rainfall in the range of 3.77 cm/h to 12.73 cm/h with raindrop size ranging from 3.05 mm to 4.76 mm and uniformity coefficient of simulated rainfall from 82.81% to 93.52% in the selected operating pressure range of 0.120 kg/cm2 to 0.800 kg/cm2 and very easy to transport as it can be assembled and dissembled very easily.
A study to observe effect of cropping systems and land slope on runoff, sediment outflow and nutrient loss under natural rainfall conditions is being conducted at Crop Research Centre. The outcome of this study will be very useful to design and plan soil and water conservation programs for hilly and other areas. Recently, Dean, College of Technology visited the experimental site and emphasized importance of such studies while appreciating the efforts being made by the department.
