Cite article:- Singh' A.K., Sing Jaspal, Reddy2 K.K., Singh3 Rashmi (2024). DROUGHT PROOANG MECHNISM IN MAHI COMMAND AREA THROUGH UNEAR PROGRAMMING MODEL - A CASE STUDY. Indian Journal of Agricultural Research. 37(3): 187 - 192. doi: .
A linear programming (lP) model was developed to formulate optimal cropping pattern for producing minimum food requirement in relation to minimum investment during drought years in Mahi command area. The study revealed that by judiciously using minimum quantum (58.7% of normal usage) of irrigation water in drought years feeding 58% of area grown with optimal cropping pattern incurring minimum investment (less by 40.9%), it would be possible to achieve food security. The investment, although made in drought condition, has not involved any financial risk and also provided considerable employment (10% of total man days). Further, the model envisages strengthening of cooperative societies promoting sharing of benefits, creditors like SHG (Self Help Groups) and voluntary regulatory bodies for water distributaries for the success of proposed activities.
