Water Resources are of utmost importance in a country like India where agriculture is the main occupation of the people. The dense population, which is increasing at a tremendous rate, needs to be provided food. The agricultural production can be increased by following better farming techniques, with the use of fertilizers and better seeds. This however is not possible unless an adequate amount of water is available. Therefore irrigation is absolutely essential in India where water resources are available in the form of surface water and ground water. Irrigation is the process of supplying water to crops by artificial means such as canals, wells, tanks and other sources like rivers, ponds or underground water.
