Project Management
A protocol is developed following a cyclical approach to synchronise with crop cycle. It adopts a workbook based planning, water use effificiency, partcipatory self assessment with farmers to assess the performance of the project, and varified through remote sensing..>>>>>

1Minor Irrigation, Livelihood
new apprroach is evolved for managing the tank based irrigation that takes in to account the surface and ground water for crop water budgeting to improve the livelihood opportunities in remote areas that are not serviced by the major projects. .>>>>


Irrigated Agriculture

Irrigated agriculture produces the surplus and provides national food security as compared rainfed areas. Surface and ground water based agriculture cover around 6.110 mn ha to produce 20.42 mn tons of food grains. Irrigation, water use efficiency and agriculture technology would play a major role in meeting the expanding food demand..>>>>>

Tool Book
You would find a brief description of various tools used for project management, capacity building modules for farmer, workbook, performance manaegment, water use efficiecny, crop water budgeting, Reservoir and canal flow monitoring system etc..>>>>>

A.P. Government Projects
Read on for innovative projects on irrigation being implemented in Andhra Pradesh, more specifically Andhra Pradesh Community Based Tank Management Project, AP Irrigation and Livelihood Improvement Project and RRR project..>>>>>
