AGRICULTURE AND IRRIGATION

IRRIGATION

It is the perennial source of irrigation that helps the land to be green throughout the year, and provides with an assured remedy to relieve the tillage from the random rains that still determine the agrarian pattern of the district. There is still an imbalance between the ' dry' and ' wet' crops which are found everywhere side by side in the district. The efforts to increase the irrigational facilities so as to bring more land under 'wet' crops in the district, however are restricted to a very limited area as could be seen from the proportion of gross irrigated area to gross cropped area in the year 1959-60 which was 4.89 per cent as against the State average of 6.23 per cent.

The chief source of irrigation in the district are the wells. Canals 'have also been made and are supplied with water either from artificial tanks or from risers that have been dammed up. The fields are watered either by lift or by flow from canals and water courses. Such canals numbered 112 in 1961-62. out of which 96 were government canals and the remaining 16 were owned by non-governmental bodies. They together irrigated an area of 9947.182 hectares (24,580 acres) in 1961-62. Dhulia. Sakri, Nandurbar and Shahada talukas together have more than 90 per cent of the area irrigated by canals in the district. Private canals are mainly found in Shahada taluka. The irrigation wells numbered 13024 in 1961-62, and they irrigated in area Of 18902.074 hectares (46,708 acres). Wells provide the main source of irrigation in all the nine talukas of the district. Akkalkuwa, Taloda, and Shirpur talukas have their lands irrigated entirely by wells, while Akrani Taluka has practically no area under irrigation. The wells are usually of two kinds pakka or masonry wells and kachcha or unfaced wells. They are worked by mot which is in almost universal use. The mot, a large leathern bucket, is so suspended as to discharge itself on rising to the surface. The motive power is supplied by a pair of bullocks advancing and retreating on an inclined plane.

The net irrigated area [These figures include areas irrigated by canals, wells and tanks.] increased from 27166.976 hectares (67,131 acre) in 1952-53 to 29741 993 hectares (73,494 acres) in 1961-62 or by 9.5 per cent in the course of ten years.

'Another remarkable improvement has been in the number of oil engines and electric pumps used for irrigation. The number of electric pumps increased from 13 in 1951 to 81 in 1961. The number of oil engines increased from 844 in 1951 to 3826 in 1961.[Census of India 1961, District Census Handbook, Dhulia, p. 3.]

Other details regarding the sources of irrigation such as their location, area irrigated by them, water rates charged, the crops irrigated and their constructional description are given in the following tables. The table No. 35 gives information about the irrigation works completed before the First Five-Year Plan, and those which have been completed during the first three Five Year Plans, while the table Nos. 36 and 37 give information about the irrigation works which are in progress under the control of the Zilla Parishad, and the Panchayat Samitis, respectively.

Food crops occupy about 90 per cent of the gross irrigated aiea. Of these wheat is an important irrigated crop. Other irrigated crops are rice, jowar, pulses, vegetables and chillis. Area under irrigated cotton has been gradually increasing. In Dhulia taluka more than half the irrigated area is under wheat. Another remarkable change in the cropping pattern under irrigation in the taluka is that the whole cotton producing area is under irrigation. Nandurbar taluka has the largest irrigated area under chillis. In Sakri taluka the area under irrigation is fairly well distributed among the different crops. In Taloda, Shahada and Sindkheda talukas the irrigated areas are somewhat equally distributed between wheat and chillis. The Dhulia, Shahada and Sakri talukas have got more irrigated areas" under non-food crops.
