Importance of water in Agriculture development
When crops are grown in the fields, it is very much necessary that the fields should water properly based on the need. There are also some crops that are present which ultimately needs excess amount of water for the growth and the enrichment. Irrigation is the major factor for the Agriculture in Tamilnadu. Because of the excess availability of the water in Tamilnadu the Agriculture was practically followed for many generations in Tamilnadu. In today's world the water is the most demanding source of energy that is definitely on demand. In Tamilnadu recently there was also a big loss in the Agriculture because of the lack of rain and the water. So water plays a major role in the Agriculture development of Tamilnadu.
In olden days there were lots of rivers that were flowing in the Tamilnadu, but now it is difficult to find out a proper river in Tamilnadu. The lack of water is the main reason why the Agriculture was affected in Tamilnadu. In most cases the agriculture lands were kept without proper irrigation and proper maintenance for many years and this led to a condition in which the land was made unfit for the agriculture. Even though water was one of the reasons for the same, the people were the other main reason for the agriculture to get affected. When the utility increased and the climatic conditions were disturbed, the water that was present was also made not available. This made no source of water for the lands and this is the reason why the irrigation system in Tamilnadu was affected to greater extent.
