Farmers in different villages confirmed that water level in open wells increased on an average in the range of 3 to 15 feet during the SW monsoon rainy season and availability is extended by about 2 months in the dry season during year. Farmers mentioned that period of water availability in open wells for irrigation extended from January before the IWDP initiative to end of March after the watershed development. This situation favored a change to double cropping with four or six supplemental irrigations for second crop between January to March. All this impact was felt by the beneficiaries because of good quality soil and water conservation interventions and water harvesting structures at right location developed through this project. Commendable efforts by the project managers, staff, as well as WC were responsible for these positive impacts in these watersheds.
