Sustainable Management of Tank Irrigation Systems in South India sami* Abstract Irrigation tanks in India are the classic examples of common property resources which are mostly distributed in southern states.

Most of the tanks have, over time, degraded into open access resources due to weak property relations. Over the centuries, traditional tank systems have become a major source of irrigation which helped in the sustainable agricultural production in the semi-arid zones of Asian countries like India.

Palanisami Water Technology Centre, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore+ **- India Tank irrigation systems of India are a century old.

Most of the tanks have, over time, degraded into open access resources due to weak property relations. Tank irrigation system The popular method of community-based maintenance system of tanks, existed historically, is disintegrated.

Paucity of funds and meager budgetary allocations in the past resulted in continued neglect of tank irrigation infrastructure in south India, which has equity and sustainability. Tank irrigation system is one of the important and oldest sources of irrigation in India. Southern parts of India, where average rainfall is around mm are noted for the intensity of tanks.

There are abouttanks in the southern region consisting of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka states. Abstract. Tank irrigation systems of South India account for about one third of the total rice irrigated area. In the recent past, poor maintenance of the tanks both by government and farmers contributed for the declining tank performance, as indicated by the declining rice area irrigated as well as by reduction in rice yield due to growing water scarcity at the end of the crop by: 1.

1 Tank Irrigation Systems of India Tank irrigation contributes significantly to agricultural production in parts of South and Southeast Asia. Especially in South India and Sri Lanka, tank irrigation has a long history and many currently used tanks were constructed in the past centuries.

The tanks. Key words: Rehabilitation, Tank Irrigation, sustainability. Tank irrigation system contributes significantly to agricultural production in the parts of South and Southeast Asia, especially in south India and Sri-Lanka. Therefore, the combination of fresh water (80 mm), then brackish water (80 mm), then brackish water (80 mm) is a feasible irrigation strategy in China’s Yellow River Delta for winter wheat.

Among the existing irrigation systems in India, irrigation from tanks are the traditional based as well as an appropriate indigenous technology in rural area. The rural tanks have become an important and predominant socio-economic component in India.

Some Parts of South India have experienced this type of irrigation practices since vedic periods. Southern India is known for tank irrigation and is reported to have nearlysuch structures, accounting for 60% of the irrigation tanks in the country (Vaidyanathan, ).

Over the decades, these tanks have undergone significant degradation, manifested by decline in storage of water and reduction in area irrigated and decline in other functions performed by them.

and natural system. SOUTH INDIA’S RWH SYSTEMS: STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION The RWH “tanks” of South India are formed via the construction of earthen banks, or bunds, across natural depressions in the landscape to impound surface runoff (Figures 1 and 2). During monsoon rains, runoff from the tank catchment area inundates the tank bed.

The Indus basin irrigation system in Pakistan is the largest integrated irrigation system in the world. This irrigation system diverts approximately BCM of annual river flow and spreads it over Mha of cultivable land, of which nearly 9 Mha can be irrigated throughout the by:   Tanks are technologies used to store water for irrigation in south India since ancient times.

Scholars have been divided over the reasons for the decline of tanks. In the late eighteenth century, when the British colonial government took control of large parts of south India, tanks were in a decrepit state and unusable. Over two hundred years of colonial rule resulted in tanks diminishing in Author: Aditya Ramesh.
