Abstract: "The failure of many irrigation systems in developing countries to achieve expected levels of performance, coupled with the relatively deteriorated state of many others, and the increasingly higher unit area cost of new systems,has prompted greater emphasis on the rehabilitation and modernization of existing irrigation systems. Illustrative of this is India's Seventh Five-year Plan1 which indicates that a major objective of the plan will be '... to give the highest priority to the utilisation of the existing irrigation potential for optimising production by constructing field channels, land leveling and introduction of warabandi.'"
