Community wells for sustainable irrigation in tank commands: A case study
Published in
2004
Pages: 347 - 352
Abstract
An optimization model has been formulated to maximize the net benefit from a tank command with conjunctive use of surface water from the tank and ground water from wells and community well in the tank area. The Kannangudi tank in Pudukkottai district, Tamil Nadu, India has been taken as the case study. Six crops were found in the command area and are considered for arriving the optimal cropping pattern. The study result shows that, the wells and community well in a tank command contributes to a sustainable irrigation and apparently maximize the net benefit from that tank command.
