This article is concerned with estimating the impacts of installing field channels in terms of differences in production, input use and net returns. The location for the study is the area irrigated by the Hirakud reservoir in Orissa State of Eastern India. In a normal year, the Hirakud reservoir provides irrigation water for 15% of the cropland in Sambalpur district or 270,000 acres.
