   Unique Fud System     


This is a unique ancient irrigation system built up by the farmers in Panzara river valley in Sakri Taluka of Dhule District.  The River valley is about 3257 sq. km. developed co-operatively by constructing stone wall of about two-three meters hight for diverting the river water in the system of canals along the bank of river.  This ancient system is still irrigating the farmerís land on co-operative basis from Shendwad to Betawad.  

        The history of FUD system is very ancient, probably  originated during Maurís Era.  Yadavís also promoted the farmers in development of this system.  During Durga Deviís scarcity in 1376-1476 in Khandesh, Malik Raja Faruqi tries to increase agriculture income.  The farmerís of Khandesh were taking crops using this Unique FUD system as stated by Abul Fazal in 1599-1600.   Similarly Traniar  Theveno in his traveling over khandesh stated about this irrigation system. 

        The system has affected the Social, Economy and Education status of the valley habitant.
