Relation Between Base, Delta and Duty

Let assume,

  • ‘D’ is the duty of water, unit hectares/cumec
  • ‘B’ is the base period of the crop, the unit in day.
  • ‘Δ’ is the total depth of water, unit meter.

We know, one cumec of water supplying continuously for B days to obtain a depth of water Δ over an area of land D hectares.

Hence, we can write

⇒ 1 cumec for B days gives Δ over D hectares.

⇒ 1 cumec for 1 day gives Δ over D/B hectares.

⇒ 1 cumec for 1 day(1 cumec-day) = (D/B)⨯Δ hectares-meter [Equation 1].

Now, calculate the value of 1 cumec-day = 1246060=86400 m³.  

We know that 1 hectare is equal to 10000 m², now convert 86400 m³ into a hectares-meter.  

So, 1 cumec-day =86400 m³ = 8.64 hectares-meter [Equation 2].   From equation 1 and 2 we can write

⇰ (D/B)⨯ Δ = 8.64

⇰  Δ = [(8.46⨯ B)/D] Unit in meter.
