Abstract:

Present study was conducted in Krishna Command Area at Vijayapura, Kalaburagi and Yadgiri districts of Karnataka to identify the constraints and suggestions expressed by the head reach and tail-end farmers for participation in effective canal irrigation management. Data was collected through personal interview method from eight Water Users Cooperative Societies (WUCS) farmers. Results indicated that, major constraints expressed by the head reach farmers were inadequate training programmes conducted by WUCS, lack of knowledge on integrated crop management, lack of adequate fund from Govt. to improve irrigation structure and groupism and political interference. Similarly the major constraints expressed by the tail-end farmers viz., lack of cooperation and support from irrigation department, obstruction to water flow from upper reach, lack of adequate fund from Govt. to improve irrigation structure and groupism and political interference. These constraints can be overcome by implementing the suggestions as expressed by the head reach farmers like; conduct adequate training programmes on water management, providing information on integrated crop management practices, providing adequate fund from Govt. to improve irrigation structure and participation of farmers for conserving water. Similarly the suggestions expressed by the tail-end farmers were proper cooperation and support from irrigation department, coordination/understanding among the farmers to share water, providing adequate funds from Govt. to improve irrigation structure and giving equal importance given to all members of WUCS.
