Abstract:

In the study it was observed that from 9 structures in IWMP-2 project at different villages of Madhya Pradesh, during Rabi, about 146 farmers were benefited. The farmers reported that in total about 16 percent area of cultivation increased especially in winter and summer and they received very good increase in overall production about 38 percent. Study revealed that due to structures, farmers were able to cultivate more gaining crops as irrigation water availability was increased. Moreover, benefit cost analysis showed that all the construction cost of structures was recovered in 3 to 4 years and continued to benefit the beneficiary tribal farmers. We also observed that small farmers have come to get about above 50 percent overall benefits on average and medium farmers are getting lower about 10 – 25 percent of benefits from the different structures in IWMP-2 project.
