Assessment of irrigability potential of an area is the basic need for watershed management. Land irrigability potential of Kanhar sub-basin of Sone Basin has been evaluated using systematic interpretation of aerial photographs followed by semi detailed soil survey. It is 1.51 lakh hectares where 1.2%, 17.2% and 78.7% areas fall under moderately, marginally and unsuitable categories for substained used under irrigation respectively.
