IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Evaluation of management practices using crop water productivity in a semi-aridtropical watershed Ęc a case study of singur-manjeera basin in telangana, india
Author : GAUTAM, P.V.N.(1), & PHANINDRA, K.B.V.N.(2)
Effective management of irrigation water requires a prior knowledge of crop water requirement. This study
aims at understanding water-plant-yield relations at sub-catchment scale, by analyzing crop water productivity
(CWP) considering various management scenarios. A pre-calibrated (for catchment outflows and nitrate
loads) hydrologic model of the Singur-Manjeera Basin in Telangana, India was considered in the present
study. Process based hydrologic model, SWAT was used to simulate crop yield and groundwater depths on
daily time step for the irrigation years 2013-15. Data on meteorological, soil, land-use, crop, irrigation, and
management practices was provided using geographical interface ArcSWAT. A total of 584 hydrological
response units (HRUs), 20 sub basins, and 20 reaches were delineated. Model calibration (for crop yield and
groundwater depth) was performed at sub-basin level specific to each crop class using SUFI-2 algorithm in
SWATCUP. The calibrated model was further applied to evaluate the impact of various conservation practices
by considering changes in land use, copping pattern, climate, and fertilizer application. Statistical analysis was
performed to rank the management practices (specific to the region) considering higher CWP and lower
groundwater nitrate loads
