Abstract

Financial analysis of irrigation investments in existing as well as new
plantations of coconut was conducted. The annualized capital costs and
variable costs were included in the cost of irrigation. The Levelised Annual
Cost Approach was used to compute the pumping cost. The study was
conducted in a mixed cropping system. The effective area under each crop
was computed and the allocation of irrigation costs was done accordingly. In
all the land types the investments in irrigation was found to be highly feasible
financially. The financial ratios were found to be higher in midland categories
indicating that compared to the other regions, the midland region had higher
potential for investment in irrigation.
