Abstract:

Sugarcane Farming is one of the important segments of Indian agriculture because it is raw material to sugar industry for which India ranks second in the world economy. Under the depleting groundwater scenario, productivity of high water requiring crops like sugarcane can only be sustained using water-economizing techniques like drip irrigation. The study was carried out to assess the extent of use of drip irrigation system in sugarcane crop. For this purpose, 240 sugarcane growers in three districts Telangana state were taken as study respondents. This paper has made an attempt to reveal the extent of use of drip irrigation system by sugarcane farmers. The study revealed that 32.50 per cent of the sugarcane drip farmers fell under the category of low extent of use followed by medium, high extent of use, very high and very low extent of use respectively.
