Irrigation is essential to improve food grain productions in Orissa. Orissa is rich in water resources .Monsoon rain water is a boon for Orissa. Ground water level is so good that if we utilise them in scientific way abundant crops can be harvested and food crisis can be solved .I have traveled far and wide across India . Since my childhood I developed attraction towards agriculture .I discovered that water is main the cause of food grain shortage.
Tamilnadu is my main attraction in this field.There is scarcity of water in its western part but they use to cultivate sugarcane, paddy, vegetables etc thought the year through lift irrigation.Being a Banker ,I use to have interaction with the farmers and could realise the practical problems in this field .I have seen century old dug wells of 140 feet deep with a little water / without water .In Orissa ,we are lucky that water cannot be emptied in 30 feet dug well through out the year .
