A study was carried out to evaluate the crop performance, water distribution and drainage in paddy fields after land consolidation at the Assam Jawa integrated development project area during teh main season 1981/82. Parameters such as water depth, drying rate and soil bearing capacity were measured from the 'cut' and 'filled'areas and compared with those in the traditional paddy field area. Samples for crop performance evaluationwere also taken from the same areas. It was observed that after land consolidation, the 'cut' area had a significant reduction in yield compared with the traditional paddy fild area and the filled area. Surface soil bearing capacity had also been reduced as a result of land consolidation. However, drainage rate had increased and consequently the rate of build-up of bearing capacity was also faster. Water distribution was still unsatisfactory because of inadequate land levelling.
