There are about six lakh farmers in the united Karimnagar district, which are dependent on cultivation of various kinds of crops in about 2.45 lakh acres. With the release and supply of Kaleshwaram water, this year the cultivable land was increased in the district and the officials are expecting further increase of cultivated land in the coming up days. The agricultural officials said that the Chief Minister directed them to prepare the farmers for cultivating fine rice and pulses (especially red gram) in the district and to increase the cultivable lands by encouraging the farmers.

They also informed that there is a probability of establishment of food processing units in the district for the convenience of the farming sector.
