lift irrigation schemes

In order to make maximum use of the water of Amaravati river, the state government has decided to restart all the closed irrigation schemes. The motive behind restarting the irrigation schemes is to stabilize the existing ayakat (a type of canal) besides providing more irrigation for agriculture. Andhra Pradesh government has constituted a high-level committee to study the performance of irrigation schemes of Maharashtra, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh. This committee has been asked to do research on the irrigation schemes of these states. These states do large scale farming with the help of irrigation schemes.

The Andhra Pradesh government has directed the committee to study the best option being adopted for these schemes. Though a good number of irrigation schemes have been constructed in Andhra Pradesh, farmers are not getting expected results, allegedly due to improper management of the schemes.

The irrigation scheme is especially helpful for those farmers in the uplands who could not get water from canals due to gravity. Due to the geographical conditions of Ayukt, despite the canals flowing in the surrounding area, the farmers of the higher areas do not get water. The state government observed that a large amount of water goes into the sea after major reservoirs overflow during the flood season.

Due to heavy rains and floods in the Krishna and Godavari basins, all major reservoirs were filled with water in the last three years, after which all the excess water went into the sea. At least 2,500 to 3,000 tmc ft of water from both the Godavari and Krishna rivers went into the sea in the entire three years. Keeping this in mind, the government has decided to revive the lift irrigation schemes.
