ABSTRACT

The purpose of precision land levelling is to produce a best-fit uniform and plane soil surface that makes optimum use of soil and water resources for agricultural purpose. Precision land levelling amongst other methods is made with the help of laser technology. This research paper attempts to find out the impact of laser land levelling on the changes in output level and to determine the extent of water saving. The study is based on primary data collected from the farmers who have got their fields leveled with their traditional methods and with laser technology. Partial budget technique has been employed to determine benefit cost ratio.
