कर्नाटक में किसानों के लिए कृषि भाग्य योजना (हिंदी में) 

The State Government of Karnataka has launched flagship scheme to achieve revolutionary change in Karnataka’s farm sector named Krishi Bhagya Scheme. Under this scheme, government commit to transforming agricultural sector by increasing farm productivity, infusion of new technology & equipment, sustainable agriculture practices and better water management & irrigation facilities in the state. In the Karnataka, 70% farmers depend on rainwater for their crops. These rains fed fields don’t have any form of assured irrigation during the dry period. Famers could not able to get the adequate amount of water during their crucial time of crops. The total losses or lower yields reduce rain-fed farming to an unsustainable proportion. This un-sustainability pushes some farmers out of agriculture itself. Hence, the government started this scheme for farmers with an aims to offer a solution that enables rain-fed farming towards sustainable agriculture. In this programme, the government is supporting farmers to make a farm pond with polythene lining (to prevent percolation), install pump and sprinkler irrigation system (for efficient water utilization). This programme helps farmers to harvest rainwater in their farm and irrigation system helps to use those water efficiently for agriculture. If farmers take proper advantage of this program they can save their crops or enhance yield by about 30%. By delivering that much more income, this programme hopes to bring sustainability into rainfed farming
