  Irrigation persently covers only 12% of the cultivated area, but could be expanded to cover a large part of the country by choosing proper technology Various Methods of Irrigation The present irrigation methods in Bangladesh include (a) the large projects diverting/lifting water from rivers, (b) low-lift pumps lifting from surface water, (c. On the other hand, scarcity of irrigation water during March-April limits the cultivation of High Yielding Variety rice which accounts for about 36% of total rice production. Bangladesh’s problems as a Lower Riparian in the Basins As the lower riparian of the major rivers, Bangladesh is File Size: KB. Utilizing 21st century technology, Irrigation Technologies develops efficient designs with high quality, accurate information and in-depth analysis of each client’s specific needs. With over 30 years in the green industry, Irrigation Technologies staff have been associated with hundreds of unique irrigation . Irrigation devices specially designed mechanical appliances used for lifting water either from surface or sub-surface sources for irrigation and domestic purposes. In Bangladesh, million ha are suitable for irrigation. But according to the present estimate of available water resources, only about million ha can be irrigated.

Using the case of manual irrigation technology – treadle pumps -- in Bangladesh and India, this paper illustrates how the institutional context of agricultural machinery promotion initiatives has had enormous influence on .   Sustainable groundwater quality has become a major concern for the agro-based country like Bangladesh. Integrated approaches of various irrigation water quality indices and geostatistical modeling were applied to evaluate the suitability and for spatial mapping of groundwater quality of Faridpur District in central Bangladesh. The irrigation water quality index (IWQI) revealed that Cited by: 6. Brown et al. () attempted to show how these technologies where linked to farmer control, i.e. the level of control that a farmer would have over the design and investment decisions and over water management, Figure Figure 1: Farmer control of irrigation schemes (Brown et al ). Water harvesting. Water harvesting is a method that has been around for centuries but is not widely.
