I am really surprised and rather disappointed at the lack of water in my farm. It’s in the heart of western ghats and the area receives upwards of 1500mm of rain a year and yet, by January, the stream that runs by the side of my farm goes dry and even the wells go dry by Feb. I started digging a well and we have reached 50 ft without any sign of water.
This is got me researching about rain water harvesting methods, particularly recharge pits. Does anyone here have experience with them? Can anyone vouch for their usefulness? Is it worth spending another lakh or two diggging trenches all over my farm?
There’s something called KFP (Kedia Farm Pattern) advertised heavily on the web. Has someone used this technique before? It’s patented and quite expensive. I am therefore worried about sinkng some more of my hard earned money on this.
Any help/ guidance welcome. You can also directly email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance,
