Bore well recharge Success Story

 

Farmer Name: Manjunath Lamani

Village: Shirabadagi

Taluk: Savanur

District: Haveri

Contact Number: +91 9986388598

 

Manjunath Lamani is a respected farmer from Shirabadagi village from Savanur taluk, Haveri district.

Shirabadagi village is in a drought area and the farmers face lot of problems getting sufficient ground water for agriculture. In summer season they have to migrate to the cities to try to earn money. Here their lives are very difficult – either travelling daily long distances from home to the work, or living on a construction site in a shack – or even sleeping on the streets.

Despite owning 6 acres of land, Manjunath Lamani is one of the farmers who struggled to get water.

In the year of 2000-01he invested approx 1.5 lacs to sink a new Bore Well for his farm – dreaming of leading a good life with the added water. But in reality after drilling to 450 feet only one and half inches of water resulted from his work and even worse, after a few years the water table was exhausted giving water for only one and half hours at a time. Manjunath had spent lot of money to get water, and he even sometimes had to purchase water from a nearby farmer for his floriculture plantation. However finally he failed to sustain that crop and the good daily income from this ceased. He was forced to grow maze and jower – crops that require less water but result in a much lower income.

In 2013 the Sankalpa Rural Development Society visited his village and Manjunath came to know of the the benefits of Rain water harvesting through bore well recharge. He participated in Capacity building trainings and exposure visits. And in 2013-14 he voluntarily came forward to adopt the Bore Well recharge technology.
