Final Report
Volume XIII
(April 2014 - March 2015)

I. Final Narrative Report:


A pilot was tested in the tail end of Tungabhadra Irrigation Project with the support of Sir Dorabji
Tata Trust, Hivos and NABARD since 2001 in Sindhanur taluk of Raichur district. Upon successful
demonstration of the model, Janakalyan decided to test it in another context and thus proposed
Deshpande Foundation. With the support of Deshpande Foundation (through Give2Asia),
Janakalyan initiated an innovation integrated inspiring intervention in Gadag district of North
Karnataka with the small & marginal farmers of tail end of Malaprabha Irrigation Project to
address two extremes of water availability. The intervention started in April 2010 in 5 villages
with 10 farmers which have now spread across 3 taluks of Gadag and Dharwad districts in more
than 65 villages. This report is prepared at the end of 5th year to document the progress during
the reporting period (April 2014 March 2015) for the grant that was approved for 2014-15.
It was made possible to reach out to so many farmers of these villages to sustain their lives &
livelihoods by the grants provided by Deshpande Foundation (through G2A) during these periods.

A. Project Implementation:
During the current financial year, a grant of $12,295 was approved to complete 50 water
harvesting structures in tail end of Malaprabha Irrigation Project. We have successfully excavated
50 irrigation tanks against the target of 50. This volume of the report is Final Report of the grant
that was provided during the current financial year.
1. Please describe the project activities
Include as many details as possible (e.g. number and schedule of activities, who participated, specific
topics discussed, etc.).

The activities those were completed during the reporting period are not many as the focus was
mainly on creation of more number of water harvesting structures. However, this report is
prepared at the end of the grant cycle to document the achievement as well as to assess the
benefits of those structures created in the previous years.
1.1. Project Concept Orientation to the new villages:
In addition to the existing project villages, Janakalyan field team extended their extension
services to other villages of Naragund & Ron taluks of Gadag district and Navalagund taluk of
Dharwad district; i.e. Janakalyan has now reached its activities in 3rd taluk in 2nd district of

Sandbox. Many strategic decisions were taken during the year in order to achieve the target
set for the year under reporting. Reaching far away villages in the tail end was one such
strategy which helped a lot to achieve the set target.
1.2. Selection of eligible farmers for excavation of water harvesting structures:
The selection of farmers for excavation of water harvesting structures are done in 2 stages 1) Technical Feasibility by visiting the site proposed for excavation of the water harvesting
structure and 2) Social Feasibility by visiting the house of the farmer to assess the interest of
the family members and their willingness to participate in all activities under the project.
1.2.1 Technical Feasibility: Technical feasibility of the site proposed for excavation of the water
harvesting structure is assessed by our technical experts by visiting the site along with the
farmer. While assessing the site, we look at many angles of the site such as watershed
area, soil condition, catchment area, etc.
1.2.2 Social Feasibility: Once, the technical feasibility is through, the team then visits the house
of the farmer to assess the social feasibility in terms of interest of the family members to
excavate a water harvesting structure, their interest in participating all other agricultureallied activities proposed as part of this intervention, socio-economic status of the family
and such other factors contributing success of the project.
1.3 Excavation of water harvesting structures:
The commitment was to excavate about 50 water harvesting structures during the reporting
period and the team succeeded to excavate 50 structures during April 2014 March 2015;
thus the team could achieve a total of 10+27+8+45+50=140 structures since commencement
of the program in 2010.
Based on the field experiences, there was a shift in our strategies from quarter to quarter and
farmer to farmer. Some of these strategies in their order of execution are listed belowStrategy-1: Machine ours rest yours: This is the strategy based on which the excavator was
purchased. It was assumed that we will take the excavator to the farm of the farmer and they
will use it with diesel and other incidentals. The drawbacks of this strategy were many and
some of these are listed below Only one structure can be excavated at a time; thus the progress becomes slow.
Shifting cost becomes very high when single farmer comes forward from a village to
excavate a water harvesting structure.
If the operator falls ill or remain absent from duty or the machine gives trouble, the
progress hinders.
Sometimes the farmers delays to arrange their share of contribution and thus the
excavator remains idle.
Sometimes the farmer fails to arrange tractors and again the machine remains idle.
Due to rain also, the excavator and tractors cannot move for few days and again the loss
of productive periods.

It was due to all these reasons, Janakalyan Team took a strategic decision in 2nd quarter
and adopted the 2nd strategy as underStrategy-2: Complete structure of specified dimension and hours, get part hire charge of
the excavator: Identified few excavators (both wheel mover and chain mover) and
farmers and given them the specifications of the structures to be excavated. Once the
farmer reports completion of the structures of required dimensions, Janakalyan Team
visits and measures the dimension. If found satisfactory, part cost of the hire charges is
paid to either farmer or excavator owner vide cheque.
Strategy-3: Identify interested farmers from new and remote villages: Most of the
farmers who had shown interest reported that due to consecutive drought for 2 years
they are not able to invest their share of contribution. All those farmers who are capable
of investing are already excavated water harvesting structures in old villages and thus
requested the team to reach out to more number of new villages where there would be at
least few farmers available, who would be interested and also be capable of investing for
his structures despite consecutive drought.
Strategy-4: Assess need of the farmers and create flexible sizes of water harvesting
structures with hired JCBs: Another strategic decision was taken to hire few JCBs to reach
out to the demands of small farmers from far away villages. About 5 JCB worked
simultaneously and reached far more than the target. This was to meet the demand of the
small farmers.
Finally, the water harvesting structures created during the reporting period with the current
cycle of grant are furnished belowSl. Name of the farmer

Farmers Share: The above table depicts that the team has been successful to raise the
farmers contribution to the tune of Rs.941,415 (73%) in terms of excavation of 50 water
harvesting structure during the reporting period while the project share remained Rs.350,125
(27%). The farmers contribution has reduced to only 27% from 100% that we started in 201011, which itself is a great achievement.
1.4 Demonstration of effective water usage methods:
The IIFS (Intensified Integrated Farming System) model includes water budgeting to intensify
the available resources like water, land, human and other resources of the farming families. It
starts with water harvesting but concludes by empowering the farmers to practice diversified
cropping with effective utilization of available resources. However, in this project,
concentration is only on physical asset creation and rest is left to the farmers.

Since these are all first generation farmers, it was very difficult for them to succeed;

initiative.
With these beliefs, Janakalyan initiated the interventions in Malaprabha Tail end and thus the
focus was only on creation of water harvesting structure to provide water and nothing else
with cost sharing approach. However, farmers required some sort of orientation and exposure

The cropped area was 78% of the total land


holding during 2013-14 while that has reduced
to 69% during 2014-15 due to bad cropping
year. Accordingly, return has reduced to 166%
against 226% in last year vis--vis the
expenditure. The expenditure has remained
almost same though the net profit has reduced
to Rs.4.75 lakhs (66%) from Rs.9.22 lakhs
(126%) which is almost half of the previous
year.
This loss is basically due to the mono cropping
i.e. cotton. The performance of cotton was
good in previous year and thus almost all
farmers went for only cotton cultivation.
[[[ [[

15 | P a g e

Initially, the crop was very good but in mid year, the crop condition became bad and finally the
yield reduced to half of the previous year. In addition, the price of the cotton has also gone
down and therefore, the farmers have incurred hug loss.

WATER HARVESTING IN TAIL END

2. If the actual project activities differed from the activities described in the proposal, please
explain why.
The actual project activities have not differed from those described in the proposal. We have
succeeded to complete 50 water harvesting structures against the target of 50 structures during
the reporting period. It was based on the learning from the Deshpande Foundation direct
intervention field in Navalagund and as per the approval of Deshpande Foundation that the size
of the structures could be adjusted based on the need of the farmers. However, we have learnt
that the small size tanks shall not be excavated in future as those are not really helping the
farmers.

B. Project Outcomes & Impact:


Major outcomes and impacts of the project interventions at the end of reporting period are
narrated in the subsequent sections of the report.
1. Please describe your progress in achieving the purpose of the grant. What were the major
achievements of this project?
The purpose of the grant is to demonstrate a model which could resolve the irrigation needs of
the tail end farmers. It is basically to address 2-extremeties of water availability that exists in all
tail ends of any irrigation projects in India; the situation of farmers of Malaprabha tail end is no
better than this. The intervention that Janakalyan has planned with the support of Give2Asia
(Deshpande Foundation Fund) is to demonstrate the creating a water harvesting structure can
resolve the irrigation needs of these farmers. The major achievements of the grant as on date
could be summarized as in the table below

3. Why was this project important?


The tail end farmers, having no access to assured irrigation during the peak season, can never
cultivate the land that they are having for their livelihoods. Neither, they have any alternative
source of their livelihoods and thus facing extreme difficulties to survive in the age of price-hike.
In addition to decrease in per capita land availability, the productivity of the land has also gone
down as they cannot grow the crops to their fullest extent, which has direct impact on the socioeconomic as well as educational status of the communities.
This intervention was extremely important for the farmers of this region for various reasons as
stated below1) The rainfall is erratic in the region and thus cannot be depended solely on it for cultivation
2) The irrigation sources available with the farmers are not ASSURED for the crop period
3) Farmers having lift irrigation from neighboring canals cannot lift the water as the electricity is
supplied in the night hours
4) Available water from the canal is NOT adequate for irrigating the total land holding
5) The runoff generated during rainy season is wasted as the farmer does not have storage
structure and later suffers for shortage of water for irrigation.
To address all these problems, Janakalyan innovated an intervention to excavate a water
harvesting structure to harvest excess water during rainy season and use the same for life saving
irrigation during peak season; the same structure could also be used to lift the water during night
(whenever electricity is supplied) and irrigated during convenient time. The canal water whenever
runs freely, could also be stored and used during peak season for irrigation.
Thus, a single intervention could address the whole lot of irrigation related issues of the farmers
of Malaprabha Tail end thereby ensuring yield and thus securing the livelihoods of farming
communities. This also adds to the food security of the nation by bringing more land under
irrigation and increasing the productivity of the land.

C. Lessons Learned
Institution like Janakalyan implements social development projects to learn from the process for
wider benefits of the society at large. Major learning of this intervention during the reporting
period are listed in the subsequent sections of the report. The learning process is described below
for better understanding of the readers.
Proposed plan for 2015-16: The plan of action for 2015-16, as per the approved proposal, was to1) Create 35 water harvesting structures of 60x60x10 cft each in the farms of tail end farmers.
What Did Not Work: The project did not move as per the plan but had lot of issues which we
learnt during the course of execution of the plan and changed the path based on the ground
reality. Some of these issues which did not work are listed below Vegetable cultivation was not that successful due to bad climatic condition.
1. What have you learned through this project?
There are many learning of this intervention and the important ones are listed below Farm based intervention needs to be flexible as per the need of individual farmer on case
to case basis and not a rigid package to excavate water harvesting structures.
The existing farm ponds / small water harvesting structures of farmers need to be
deepened/ widened to make use of land effectively.
Farmers do not show interest during the cropping period to excavate the tank (due to
their engagements in farm based activities so also investment issue)
They do not want to lose the soil moisture once it rains (as they are not sure when the
next rain would come) and therefore go for sowing than excavation.
The farmers do not foresee any immediate return from the water harvesting structure v/s
crops; thus prioritize the crops than tank once it starts raining
One excavator can hardly excavate 25-30 water harvesting structures in a year considering
all external factors.
Cost of operation would still go down if we engage 2-3 excavators instead of 1 as the
human resource and other incidental expenditures remains same either for 1 or 3
excavators.
Hardly, cost of maintenance (greasing & regular service) could be generated from the
revenue generation works. Salary of operator remains an issue if fully engaged in
subsidized project work.
Its an investment heavy intervention; the farmers have no option to use the locally
available excavators (on credit) as they are solely dependent on our excavator hence they
need to mobilize more than 70% of the total cost of excavation
The period of excavation is from January to June (6 months only); further, we can add
hardly another 30 days out of these 6 months
Though there are more interested farmers in a village but fail to mobilize funds at a time
We cannot use the excavator more than 8-10 hours a day (as engaged tractors work for 8
hours a day)
[[[ [[

These are the most important learning from our interventions with the innovative idea of owning
the excavator instead of hiring it for excavation of water harvesting structures. It could be
summarized by saying that it is an entrepreneurial initiative keeping the sustainability of the
organization in mind; however, at least 3 excavators are to be owned at a time to break even
from 3rd year onward.
2. What improvements would you make in the future?
Some of the improvements proposed for future interventions would be
a) Reaching out to far away villages where the irrigation water is inadequate using the hired
excavator, if need be.
b) All excavated water harvesting structures would be captured with GPS enable camera for
online tracing.
c) More than 1 Hitachi shall be operated by the team in order to make effective utilize of the
human resources.
d) Hired hitachi shall also be used for excavation of more number of water harvesting
structures at a time to make use of productive time.

D. Future Plans
Janakalyan has completed 5th year of intervention with the financial support of Give2Asia
(Deshpande Foundation Fund) with a break for a year in 2012-13. The plan for next financial year
is narrated in the subsequent section of the report.
1. What are your future plans for this project? Will the project continue after this Give2Asia grant?
Future Plan: Janakalyan team has planned the following activities in the next year i.e. 2015-16
keeping all learning of all these years in mind.
Target of completing about 35 water harvesting structures in 2015-16 of 60x60x10 cft
Sustainability: The intervention of Janakalyan with the support of Give2Asia (DF Fund) would
become sustainable in the following manner even after withdrawal of Janakalyan and also the
donors.
Sustainability of the project means, continuation of the activities even after withdrawal of
Janakalyan from the project area. In this case the sustainability can be ensured if we can ensure
the following 2 options1) Use of the water harvesting structure created by the project even after the withdrawal of
Janakalyan
2) Excavation of such structures after 3-5 years without the project support
In our experience, effective use of water harvesting structures would be ensured even after the
withdrawal of Janakalyan due to the following factors The water harvesting structures would be excavated in the land of farmers and thus it would
be his/her own assets; the farmers would try and get maximum output from this piece of land
in terms of irrigation water, fish cultivation, fruit trees on the bunds of the water bank, etc.
The cost sharing concept in built in the project towards excavation of the water harvesting
structure would also ensure the ownership on the structure and thus its use in long run.
Similarly, the excavation of such Water Bank even after the withdrawal of Janakalyan can be
ensured with the following mechanisms Poor farmer: The project would try to leverage resources from NREGA rather make proper use
of the NREGA funds in excavating the Water Bank, especially in the land of SC/ST of tail end of
Tungabhadra Project to increase productivity.
Middle-class farmer: The Formal Financial Institutions (Banks) would also be sensitized to
finance Water Bank in the middle class farmers land, for whom NREGA funds are not
available.
Rich farmer: Upon successful demonstration of the concept, the rich farmers would make
their own investment to create such structures in their own farms.
KVK, UAS and line departments like Agriculture, Horticulture, Fisheries and Animal Husbandry
would provide technical support to the farmers from time to time towards SRI/IIFS concept.
Thus all the farmers can get water harvesting structures created in their farms to harvest runoff
during the rainy season and use the same for life-saving irrigation during peak season thereby
increasing the productivity of lands and thus improving the livelihoods of the rural peasant
communities with your kind support.
