Abstract:

Crop Diversification Index (CDI), Income Inequalities and Economic Viability of farm ponds before and after situations of Batch III Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana (PMKSY)-Watersheds in Srikakulam district (North-Coastal Zone) of Andhra Pradesh were assessed through Herfindahl – Hirschman Index, Gini-concentration Ratio and Discounted Financial Ratios respectively. The results indicated the changes in cropping pattern, resulting higher cropping intensity thus an increase of CDI during post-farm pond to 0.31 from 0.28 among the respondents due to the proper utilization of available water thus bringing additional area under cultivation. Further the decrease in Gini ratios from 0.31 to 0.22 revealed the significant existence of income distribution among the individual households from pre to post farm pond periods. Similarly, the economic viability and feasibility analyzed at 12% discount rate for a period of 10 years showed a positive NPW, 1.12 discounted BC ratio and IRR of 38% which is higher than the bank interest rate with four (4) years of payback period which points out worthiness of farm pond construction in the study area. Thus, the farm pond activities may be encouraged to make the program more participatory interactive and cost-effective especially to small and medium farm categories.
