The infiltration model helps</strong><strong> to design and evaluate surface irrigation systems. The study calculated constant infiltration for two types of soils (clay loam soil and laterite soil) under field conditions (Unploughed and Ploughed). The double-ring infiltrometer has been implemented to experiment. The value of various constants of the models was calculated using the approach of averages counselled through a graphical technique. Fitting infiltration test data to prominent infiltration models such as Philip’s, Horton’s and Kostiakov’s and The Nash- Sutcliffe efficiency (NSE), coefficient of determination (R<sup>2</sup>) and root mean square error (RMSE) statistics are used to evaluate the effectiveness of the model. The results indicate that Philip’s model is the most reliable, with R<sup>2</sup>, NSE, and RMSE values ranging from 0.9044-0.9677, 0.294-0.957 and 1.2647-5.7129, respectively. Therefore, under identical circumstances and without any kind of infiltration information, the above model can be employed to artificially produce infiltration information.</strong></p>
