Engineering Measures - Random Tied ridging
Cotton cultivated under Random Tied ridging in red soil Moisture conservation in Random tied ridging practice
  • The ridges are vertically tied at shorter interval to create rectangular water harvesting structures. During heavy rainy season it facilitates to infiltrate water to the soil.
  • The slight sloppiness in the tied ridges facilitates draining of excess water infiltrate into the soil.
  • Summer ploughing, broad bed and furrows, ridges and furrows, random tie ridging, compartmental .
  • bunding etc. are the various in situ water harvesting methods for black and red soils cause an increase of up to 15 per cent in crop yields.
  • It conserves soil and moisture in redsoils.
