It would be great if we can have Irrigation as a subtopic to irrigation. I feel its an important area which is rather scattered in Vikaspedia under various headings. Would be great if moderators take notice of this and include it as n area. It may further dwell into the govt schemes and policies related to irrigation, technology etc

The survey taken in Hanamkonda, Warangal shows that farmers are using smart phone.
We can hence use IT so that useful information in agriculture such as good farming techniques, weather information, best practices can be taken to farmers. Agriculture is a major source of Indian livelihood. Hence educating farmers will lead to village development.
