What is silting of tank bed.why is it a demerit of tank irrigation
Asked by lovemaan5500 | 26th Nov, 2017, 02:21: PM
Silt is fine granular material derived from rock or soil. Silt may settle down as sediment at the bottom of a water body or a reservoir like tank.
Silting is a demerit because it reduces the water holding capacity of a tank. Water holding capacity means the amount of water that a tank can hold.
