Agriculture

Most parts of this district are full of forests and stones. The cultivable land can be divided into two parts namely – Upper land and Lower land. The lands situated on the banks of rivers are fertile. One can get good crop even after using lesser amount of fertilizers in these lands. But the upper land is barren. A huge amount of fertilizers and irrigation is required for cultivation in these lands. Rabi and Kharif crops are generally sown here.

Irrigation facility is not adequate in this district due to hilly area. There are small natural rivulets, which are generally used for irrigation. There is no other natural source of irrigation. After independence government has tried and is still trying to solve the problem of irrigation. For irrigation wells and pump sets are used. Damodar Valley Project is also meant for irrigation in this area but these measures are not sufficient. Generally the farmers depend on rain for their cultivation.
