Abstract:

The Upper Krishna Project (UKP) and Malaprabha Ghataprabha Project (MGP) are the major irrigation projects in Karnataka and is the most prestigious multipurpose (irrigation and power) project An attempt was made to study the economics of cropping pattern in the four command areas. The study made use of both primary data and secondary data. Primary data was obtained from the farmers in the villages under the command areas while the secondary data was obtained from agriculture department offices in the project zones. In case of ALBC command area were results revealed that there was a difference in net returns of Rs. 10,215 per ha existing between Head and Tail region across all the seasons and all the crops. In case of IBC the average net returns per ha across all the seasons and crops was higher in Head region than the Tail region with a difference of about Rs. 10,810. In case of MLBC the average net returns per ha across all the seasons and crops was higher in the Head region than the Tail region with a difference of about Rs. 11,657. In case of GRBC command area it was found that the average net returns earned per ha across all the seasons and crops was higher in Head region than in Tail region with a difference of Rs. 11,125. Thus, overall the per hectare net returns in different crops were higher in Head region as compared to Tail region in all commands.
