NSP farmers reap it rich with Yasangi after 60 years

Correspondent

Nalgonda, May 17:Farmers in the tail-end areas under Rajavaram Major and R1-Lift Irrigation Scheme on the Nagarjuna Sagar Project (NSP) Left Canal are a delighted lot. For the first time in the 60-year history of the major irrigation project, they are now reaping the benefits of a second crop - Yasangi, with the produce fetching them good money.
Farmers of Sri Rampuram and Alwala villages under R1 Lift Irrigation Scheme and Rajavaram, Boyagudem and Yellapuram villages under Rajavaram Major on NSP Left Canal were provided irrigation facility for a second crop for the first time in the history of the project. Following the availability of water, farmers in the area took up paddy cultivation in Yasangi that has financially benefitted them. Most farmers in the tail-end areas were forced to skip the second crop and this had an adverse impact on their finances.
With the initiative of Minister for Power and SC Development G Jagadish Reddy, water was supplied to tail-end areas by closing the gate at Haliya on NSP Left Canal after completion of water release schedule that saved crops on more than 500 acres under Rajavaram Major and R1- LI Schemes. Even after completion of schedule of water release on April 12, 150 cusecs of water per day was released to Rajavaram Major and R1-LI Scheme from April 19 to 25 that prevented drying up of crops in tail-end areas.
With sufficient water supply for a second crop in tail-end areas, yield of paddy was 30 quintals to 35 quintals per acre that earned huge profits for farmers.
Under R1-Lift Irrigation Scheme, area under cultivation was 1,240 acre in Alwala and Sri Rampuram villages and irrigation facility was provided to the last acre for a second crop in this area, resulting in bumper yields never seen before. Similarly, area under cultivation in three villages under Rajavaram Major was around 1,000 acres, which also got irrigation facility for a second crop this year.
It was translated into high yield of paddy that financially benefitted farmers in the area. Under R1 LI Scheme, 500 farmers, who usually skip the season or take up cotton cultivation, took up for the first time paddy cultivation and achieved high yield.
