Abstract
The average cropping intensity is 210 and 165 percent in assured and protective irrigated farm respectively in the study area. The output input ratio was observed as 1:2.50 and 1:2.10 in assured and protective irrigated farm respectively. The average per family employment pattern was 1074.90 man-days in assured and 1219.94 man-days in protective irrigated farm household in the study area. The major problems reported included lack of awareness about high growth of digging the tub wells, lack of nonavailability of water harvesting structure, recycling and proper management in field of the study area. Adequate water availability has brought about changes in the cropping pattern levels and pattern of input utilization, yield and returns of number of crops. Promotion of assured irrigation in state will result in enhancing water, fertilizer and recourse use efficiencies, ultimately helping in achieving sustainability in agriculture.
