Erode

I recently drilled a borewell in my site in Erode, but could not find water source even after going beyond 940 ft, hence stopped the drilling. Before drilling borewell, I got the site verified by water diviner (who brought a machine and found a point to drill. Mr. Natarajan-9842776565). But could not trace water even after crossing 940 ft, though the estimated depth was 650-700 ft. I have wasted my money, nearly 1 lakh!

State sponsored policies and programmes must be sensitive to promote sustainable developmental activities in this already fragile social ecological system in Tamil Nadu.

Today's rural poor operate in highly risky and uncertain environments. Grappling with multiple stresses like eroding natural resources, poor assets and increasing climate variability, they are constantly adjusting their lives and livelihoods--changing a crop grown, digging another well, or migrating to a nearby town. To understand how livelihoods are changing in semi-arid India and what this implies for people's vulnerability to current and future impacts of climate change, we visited the semi-arid regions of the Moyar Bhavani river basin in Tamil Nadu.

Our four year old borewell is 6 inch deep with 650 feet silt at the bottom, 25 feet pump and 5 HP air compressor water pipe. The static level of water is 600 feet. Till last summer we got good yielding from the borewell but then the yield had gone down to 5000- 7000 litres per hour, later to 3000 litres per day. In winters, the yield had gone up to almost 50 feet from ground but we faced another problem that the compressor was not pumping water. We got the compressor serviced and moved the water pipe level from 600 feet to 400 feet (when the yielding was 5000 litres per 2 hours).

Soil and water conservation are necessary to make agriculture self sufficient, sustainable and viable especially in hilly regions that are hard pressed for these resources. MYRADA (Mysore Resettlement and Development Agency), as an institution, is involved in a big way in various activities that engage local people in planning for the development of their area in the three southern states. In Erode district of Tamil Nadu, the Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) has been instrumental in bringing about a marked change in the topography of the region.

MYRADA and the Krishi Vigyan Kendra in Erode district, Tamil Nadu

Mysore Resettlement and Development Agency - MYRADA - was founded in 1968 to assist the Government in resettling Tibetan refugees. By 1982, MYRADA moved out of resettlement and began to focus entirely on farmers and the marginalized communities in rural areas.
