A study on utilization pattern of farm ponds constructed by the farmers was conducted in Kalyana Karnataka region of Karnataka state (India). The Kalyana Karnataka region includes the six districts of North eastern part of Karnataka state viz. Kalaburagi, Bidar, Yadgir, Raichur, Bellari and Koppal districts. Among the six districts of Kalyana Karnataka, Raichur district were selected for the study by considering the highest number of farm ponds constructed by the farmers. All the taluks of Raichur district i.e. Raichur, Lingasoor, Devdurga, Sindhanoor and Manvi were selected for the study. Taluk wise list of farmers who constructed farm pond was collected from JDA office Raichur. From the prepared list 24 farmers each taluk were selected by employing simple random sampling technique to form the sample size of 120. The findings of the study revealed that, most of the farmers used the farm pond for other than irrigation like, farm animal drinking water (93.33 %), chemical spray (90.00%), bund formation (74.17 %) and land leveling (60.83 %). With respect to the utilization pattern of farm pond water for irrigation purpose, 31.67 percent of farmers used for one time irrigation whereas very meager percent i.e. 6.67 and 2.50 per cent of the farmers utilized for two time irrigation and three time irrigation, respectively. 37.96, 34.44 and 30.85 per cent farmers have observed that, increase in the productivity in tur, chilli and chickpea crops due to construction of farm ponds.
