Kerala has strong agricultural background and majority of its population depends on agriculture for its living. Hence ensuring efficient & cost effective irrigation systems, its maintenance and management has become one of the key responsibilities of the Department. Irrigation Department of Kerala is equipped with sufficient resources to achieve the same.

Its excellence is visible in the fields such as Minor/Major irrigation, coastal line management, salt water intrusion arresting structures, dam & river desilting works, Irrigation infrastructure revamping etc. In addition to that, Irrigation Department has also set a milestone by stepping into efficiently implementing Micro-Irrigation system.
