Abstract:

Tanks have been the main source of irrigation in many parts of India for centuries. In this connection, the Government has prioritized to take the restoration of minor irrigation tanks to restore them to store their original capacity and to effectively utilize of water allocated for Minor irrigation sector.The main aim of the Mission Kakatiya is improving the rural economy by encouraging the diversified enterprises. The present studies is on economics and profitability of predominant farming systems in areas with tank and without tank farms have been analyzed component wise and the pattern of total costs, gross returns, and returns per rupee spent on farming systems were worked out using simple budgeting technique. The number of farming systems followed by farmers in tank area before and after renovation was found to be 9, while the same with respect to area without tank was 18. In areas with tank, the profitability high for Paddy-Paddy+Dairy followed by Paddy-Paddy+Dairy+Poultry and Paddy-Paddy+Dairy+Goat farming systems with returns per rupee spent was 1.72, 1.71 and 1.70 respectively. Whereas, in areas without tank the returns per rupee was 2.10, 1.79 and 1.77 for Paddy+ Lime, Paddy-Paddy +Cotton and Paddy-Paddy +Cotton +Dairy respectively. It is confirmed that the paddy cultivation is carried out in both the seasons for majority of the farmers in areas with tank, as the water availability was increased after rehabilitation of tank under Mission Kakatiya programme. It could be concluded that the farming systems with diversified enterprises are highly profitable and with minimum risk.
