About ARS Siruguppa

           Agricultural Research station, Siruguppa is located at 760.54” East Longitude, 150-38” North Latitude and at an elevation of 380 meters from MSL. The station is situated in northern Dry zone (Region II, zone-3).  The ceded districts of Bellary, Anantapur and Kurnool And the Nizam district of Raichur are often famine stricken due to low and improperly distributed rainfall, the average rainfall being only 550-600mm mm from July to October in about 40 rainy days.

       In order to offer permanent relief from recurring famines, water of the Tungabhdra river was harnessed to provide irrigation for these districts by constructing a multipurpose dam at Mallapuram near Hospet across the river. The water was letout into the right bank low level canal on 1-7-1953.  The quality of Tungabhadra river water is excellent considering the sodium and salt content. The electrical conductivity of the water varies from 0.1 to 0.4 m mhos/cm and the SAR is about 1.20. For More Information....
