Abstract:
The study on economic impact of Sujala-III watershed project was conducted in North-Eastern Karnataka to assess the economic impact of Sujala-III watershed programme on livestock wherein, the primary data was collected from Kalaburagi and Raichur districts. The comparative analysis of data was carried out through the ex-ante (2014-15) and the ex-post (2018-19) approaches in Dotikol and Nagalapur-1 micro-watersheds from Chincholi and Lingasugur talukas, respectively. The result of the study indicated that there was effective performance of these two micro-watersheds in terms of increase in gross and net cropped area by 13.94 and 2.94 per cent respectively which inturn resulted in positive change in cropping intensity (11.17%) of agricultural crops in general, rabi and perennial crops in particular. Similarly, there was significant increase in the population of livestock which inturn increased the income from cow, buffalo, bullock, sheep, goat and poultry by 10.49, 8.95, 9.05, 7.42, 5.98 and 5.51 per cent respectively which was mainly due to sufficient availability of water and fodder in watershed area. The impact of Sujala watershed project indicated that maximum area was under perennial crops (31.16%) followed by rabi (27.81%) and kharif (10.14%) crops. There was significant increase in the livestock population which inturn increased the income of farmers to the extent of 5 -10 per cent.
