Management of Water for Agriculture: Irrigation, Watersheds and Drainage

Rakesh Hooja (Author)
Synopsis In this book, the author develops a structured analytical approach to water resources management/administration at the local level and weaves it together with related developments –some planned, others de facto –at other levels of public administration and policy formation. Above all, it is the author’s ample vision of past, present and future initiatives in the management of water for agriculture that provides sound credibility to his innovative questioning of available options and policy futures. With sections on An Overview of Integrated Use of Water for Irrigation and Agriculture, Participatory Irrigation Management, Managing Large Integrated Command Area development projects, Drainage and Salinity Control, and Managing Watershed Development, the book thus touches in a holistic manner on virtually all significant aspects of managing water for agriculture in India. The book is an invaluable source for policy makers, academicians, practitioners and a range of analysts and commentators on water resources and agriculture in India today. It can be made an essential reading for public administrators, professors and students of water policy, agriculture and rural management, and national an international analysts of India’s ongoing experiments with water management for agriculture.
