1. What type of irrigation system is based merely on gravitation?
(A) Flow Irrigation
(B) Direct Irrigation
(C) Lift Irrigation
(D) Storage Irrigation
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Flow irrigation is the type of irrigation in which supply of irrigation water is merely conveyed onto the land by the gravity flow or gravitation. In other words, water is supplied from higher grounds to lower grounds.

2. In which method of flooding, does the water take circuitous route to irrigate the land?
(A) Check Flooding
(B) Zigzag Flooding
(C) Free Flooding
(D) Basin Flooding
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: In this method, the entire land is divided into square or rectangular plots, which are subdivided with help of low bunds or levees. So, therefore the water which comes from the main ditch takes a circuitous route in each plot to irrigate the land. This is done to control the velocity of the flow of water.

3. The area in which inferior crops can be grown without irrigation is called semi-arid region.
(A) True
(B) False
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: An area where irrigation is a must is the arid region. The crops that are able to survive semi-arid regions are maize, beans, green grams.

(A) Head of the Water-course
(B) Head of the Minor
(C) Head of the Distributary
(D) Head of the Branch
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: As water flows from river to subsequent parts of the canal system some water losses takes place due to evaporation, and percolation. Due to this, the duty of water goes on increasing from starting point of canal system till its end point. Therefore, the duty of water is more at the last point of the system, i.e head of the water-course.

5. In crop-rotation, a cash crop may be followed by a fodder crop, which is then followed by soil renovating crop like ________
(A) Rice
(B) Maize
(C) Oats
(D) Grams and pulses
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: Grams and pulses are leguminous plants which increase the fertility of the soil by fixing environmental nitrogen with the help of Rhizobium bacteria. This helps reducing crop diseases and wastage due to insects and hence increases overall crop yield.
