The area under agriculture in the formerly mahabubnagar district has expanded to 19.34 lakh acres from 7.77 lakh acres thanks to irrigation projects and initiatives implemented by the state government. The former area is ranked second in cultivation in the state, according to the administration.

The government's flagship programme Rythu Bandhu, which was introduced in 2018, has benefited over 9.84 lakh farmers. 9,760 crores of rupees have already been credited to the district's farmers' bank accounts. The government has provided Rythu Bhima aid of Rs 747.43 crores to about 14,946 households.

The Palamuru-Ranagreddy lift irrigation project and other ongoing irrigation projects in the former mahabubnagar district have been given a budget of Rs 11,000 crores. At Karivena in the Bhoothupur mandal in 2015, chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao performed bhumi puja for the Palamuru-Ranagreddy lift irrigation project.

The 12.30 lakh acre Palamuru-Ranagreddy lift irrigation project is currently under construction. According to authorities, eighty percent of the work needed to build reservoirs and canals at Narlapur, Edula, Vattem, Karivena, Udandapur, and Laxmidevpur has already been done out of the total 21 packages.

The budget includes annual allocations of money for the ongoing projects Kalwakurthy, Nettempadu, Koyilasagar, Bhima, and others. 8 lakh acres are currently being irrigated, compared to 1.58 lakh in 2014. The irrigation area expanded from 13,000 acres in 2014 to 24, 000 acres under the small lift irrigation projects, while the ayacut under the water tanks increased from 84,000 to 1.87 lakh acres.
