  As the weather becomes more extreme, Sri Lanka finds itself increasingly in a debilitating pattern of alternating between drought and floods – both of which can lead to shortages of clean water.   According to some estimates, rice plantations accounted for roughly 34% of the arable land use in Sri Lanka. The government believes that close to 2 million Sri Lankan families are directly involved in growing rice. Most of the rice grown in Sri Lanka is for local consumption as it is the nation's staple food. Tea.

1In Sri Lanka, six main types of groundwater aquifers have been identified and demarcated according to the studies carried out over the last 25 years mostly by the Water Resources board (WRB) and the National Water supply and Drainage Board (NWS&DB). Pioneering studies in field have been carried out and reported Sirimanne.   A labour force of almost million serves the agricultural sector in Sri Lanka performance – 4% GDP Let’s accept it, the performance of Sri Lanka in was rather mediocre in the midst of a global economic meltdown and the slowing down of the local economy.
