  • Jalajakshi, C.K.
  • Jagadish, N.


The impact of Krishik Bandhu (KB) drip irrigation has been reported on productivities, incomes and benefit-cost ratios of sugarcane, banana, chilli and cotton in 51 villages of Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh states. The crop productivities, incomes and benefit-cost ratios under drip irrigation method have been found far higher in all the crops and in all the selected regions of these three states compared to those under the conventional flood irrigation method. The KB drip irrigation technology has been found to be far superior than the flood irrigation method.
