Abstract The Indian farming community is facing a lot of problem in increasing the crop production. Water is one of the major factor that influences the crop cultivation or crop production. Conservation of water is becoming increasingly important. Farmers rely on irrigation and canal irrigation is important component of the same. Canal irrigation system consists of network of canals which include main canal, distributary canal, minor canal and outlets. The source of water to main canal could be river water or water stand reservoir. From the source water is released to main canal then it goes to distributary canal after that it goes to minor canal then to the field through outlet. Not all the water released in the main canal at river water reaches to the farmers field. A considerable portion of water released in main canal is lost in the form of seepage when it is flowing through the different canal such as main, distributary, minor and outlets. From irrigation point of view, the water that is available at field level is important. Normally the water available at the field level is estimated manually using the various methods to accomplish seepage losses. An online software has been developed to account seepage losses for estimating the water available at the field level. This system has been developed using standard three tier web architecture. The client side interface layer has been implemented using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The server side application layer has been implemented using JSP technology and the database layer has been implemented using Microsoft SQL server. This software provides information about the seepage loss for the main canal, distributary canal, minor and outlets. The System also provides how much water available at the field level and the time taken to irrigate the field. This system can serve the Dam manager by providing them information about the seepage loss calculation, water available at field level and time taken to irrigate field.
