Pitcher Irrigation

In India, Matka irrigation or pitcher irrigation (Fig. 1) was and is practiced from ages. Due to its spheroid shape, its insertion and extraction from the soil is associated with excessive drudgery and soil disturbance. The Frustum shape (Fig. 2) of a porous vessel helps to avoid the above said disadvantages. Therefore, a modified pitcher irrigationtechnology was developed in a RuTAG IIT Delhi project consisting of a covered frustum shaped sub-surface porous vessel (SSPV) with appended organic wet compost patch and multi-cropping-based agriculture surrounding it.
