Irrigation System in Early India

Authors(1) :-Dr. Ajita Ojha

In the earlier Vedic age, Arya was familiar with farming, but in the North Vedic period, the main place of agriculture was found. By this time the character had been partitioned and the agriculture and animal husbandry values ??were considered as karma. Keeping in view the progress and importance of agriculture, the need for irrigation system has also been felt. Then in addition to the natural resources of irrigation, artificial means have been given attention. In terms of irrigation the fields were divided into 'Devamatruk' and 'Apadamatruk' in two parts. Devamatruk meant that land was dependent on the water of full rain, whereas the non-Goddess land was land which was dependent on the water of artificial means such as rivers, ponds, wells and canals. In the Atharva Veda, irrigation is mentioned by the canal. Details of wells and drains are also found. 2 wells were dispersed by Charas, Vert, and Garari in the well. 3 Those who predicted the weather in Atharvaved have also been discussed. 4 Drought and flood protection, 5 insects and locusts Praise mantras were used for destruction and rain.
