The present investigation was carried out in Dharwad Taluk (Karnataka) during 2007-2008, to evaluate the influence of weather parameter on ground water level and the impact of Rain Water Harvesting on farming economy. Monthly data on weather parameters and ground water level recorded by District Statistical Office, Main Research Station Dharwad and Department of Mines and Geology Dharwad respectively for 28 years were collected. Primary data were collected from the randomly selected 60 sample farmers of both with and without Rain Water Harvesting Systems. Data related to year 2007-2008 were elicited using pre-structured and pre-tested schedules. The results of the analysis indicated that the ground water was significantly correlated with rainfall (positively) and temperature (negatively). The study indicated that the farmers of with RWHS were found to have positive impact on land holding, cropping intensity. Investment of farmers of with RWHS indicated favorable results in terms of B: C ratio.

Keywords: Rainwater harvesting, Correlation, Backward regression, t-test, cropping intensity, B:C ratio etc.
