  Winter dry season is mainly depends on irrigation. Because, the rainfall in this season is almost zero. At the end of this season, ground water mainly remains at about 10-12 meter depth. On the other hand, the crop then remains at booting to flowering stages. During this period, a huge number of cracks developed on the puddled field due to shortage of water. Consequently, the size and number of cracks depend on the irrigation interval, the intensity and duration of drought spell. The sizes of the cracks are range about 10-30 mm wide. Normally, the major cracks goes below puddled layer of 70-100 mm and almost all the cracks are interlinked and remain active through the growing season. Therefore, a major portion of the irrigation water lost through this cracks. Hence, a large area remains fallow due to proper management and shortage of irrigation water. Therefore, irrigation application efficiency to be increased in cracking soils by reducing seepage and drainage losses in paddies. As a result, it is important to develop irrigation scheduling of rice for cracking soils on the basis of crack size rather than estimating crop water requirements based on evapotranspiration (ET) demand.

  A study of cracking soils management was conducted in the wet soil bin with nine soil management practice treatments to investigate their impact on infiltration rate. The treatments were arranged in a randomized complete block design (RCB) with three replications. It is observed that the management of cracking soils, even at an early stage of crack initiation, has a great influence on infiltration rate. Among the management practices, the hand hoe operation was found to be better than trampling to reduce the cracks when the crack width was 10 mm. It is also observed that there is no influence of crack number on infiltration if a soil management practice is included with irrigation. The study reveals that with a soil management practice, the cracks reduced or were removed in a short period of time even though the cracks were 10 mm wide. In contrast, without soil management, cracks remained open for a long period even after ponding. By practicing soil management during irrigation, a large volume of water can be saved which my help to bring more area under irrigation particularly where there are limited water resources.
