Abstract:

Conjunctive use is a single input to address the physical and economic scarcity of surface water (SW) and groundwater (GW) and it offers the solution to a large extent to hurtful effects of SW and GW. This study aims at addressing the importance of conjunctive use in enhance the income of the farmer. This study examines the comparative economics of crops (Sugarcane, Ragi and Paddy) under different regimes at farm level in Cauvery command area of Karnataka. The findings reveals that net gain realized by the sugarcane farmers under conjunctive use of water as against of surface and groundwater about Rs.774 and 34,233 per ac / year and it is same for Ragi and Paddy crop. Using production function analysis, the net returns realized was worked out. The results were revealed that the net returns realized per farm was more in CU use farmers (Rs.1, 51,594) followed by SW (Rs 38,237) and GW (Rs.32, 738). This signifies potential benefits of conjunctive use of water in realizing gross income of the farmers.
