DAVANGERE: The Irrigation Consultative Committee of the Bhadra Command Area Development Authority (CADA) has decided to let water from the Bhadra into the canals from the midnight of July 1.
Gollar, Joint Director of the Agriculture Department, who on Monday attended a meeting in this regard at Shimoga, told The Hindu that the decision was taken at the meeting.
The meeting also decided to release water for 120 days. However, water would not be released if there was excessive rainfall in the command area during monsoon, Mr. Gollar said.
It was decided to stop water from November 1 till December-end for the modernisation of the Bhadra canals.
Mr. Gollar appealed to the farmers to cultivate short-term crops since it had been decided to release water only for 120 days.
K. Shekarappa, Chairman of the CADA, presided over the meeting. Over 90,000 hectares of land in the Davangere region comes under the Bhadra command area.
