Abstract:

Water play an important role in improving crop production and productivity of crops. The production of any crop mainly suffers due to erratic and uneven distribution of rainfall, lack of irrigation facilities, non adoption of suitable varieties according to soil type, inappropriate method of cultivation, weeds and nutrient management practices and plant protection measures. Irrigation is generally believed to play an important role in improving productivity and aggregate food production. The contribution from irrigated agriculture to achieving this goal will be critical as irrigation provides a powerful management tool against the vagaries of rainfall. Given the present problem of global climate change with its attendant problem of irregular rainfall and intermittent river flow, the need to develop the irrigation potentials of the state cannot be more timely than now. Also, given the high rate of poverty particularly in the rural areas of the state, the high surface water resources and the problems of global climate change with its attendant uncertainties, this study highlight the need to develop irrigation farming in the state so as to increase food production, rural income, employment opportunity, poverty reduction and improvement in the quality of life of the people. The drip method of irrigation has the potential to completely eliminate water stress for crops even under severe water scarcity conditions. The excess supply of water through conventional method is a potential loss of water, and at times may adversely affect crop yield, quantitatively as well as qualitatively. In order to achieve these objectives a systematic review of existing literature on the topic using case studies from past successful or unsuccessful irrigation development projects has been conducted. In view of above for developing livelihood opportunities in village under the state rural livelihood mission project considering Surgi village as a Model and irrigation facilities was created for poverty alleviation and livelihood security on sustainable basis.
