Description
The research is not concerned to bring the different irrigation technologies into comparison or to discuss matters of superiority of one technology over the other. The objective of this study is to understand how these interact at the local level. In order to understand this, it becomes necessary to remove these technologies and the institutions from the ’apolitical’, ’ahistorical’ construct of intervention processes and planning and to place them together in the larger agro-ecological, politico-economic and socio-cultural context of the study area. Irrigation management practices evolve as a result of the interaction of technologies, resources and society in such a context An understanding of these processes gives insights into how farmers manage more than one source of water or what happens when they shift from one to the other.
