Abstract: The present study was conducted to make comparative assessment of traditional farmer managed small hill irrigation systems and State managed irrigation systems in Kumaun (Central) Himalaya. Ten randomly selected canal systems in each category in Almora district were studied in terms of their operational characteristics. Different irrigation parameters (i.e. canal ratio, duty, irrigation intensity and conveyance losses, etc.) of their management systems have been compared to assess its influence on the performance of irrigation system in the region. The farmer schemes are small in size, but they are sound in terms of land and water utilization as indicated by the high irrigation intensity and conveyance efficiencies. The state managed schemes are less efficient mainly due to their static management, poor maintenance and absence of location specific technology.
