Heggadadevana Kote

Heggadadevana Kote (H D Kote) is a taluk or taluk headquarters in Mysore district in Karnataka. Kakana kote forest lies in Heggadadevana kote taluk. H D Kote is 194 km from Bangalore & 51.4 km from Mysore.

H D Kote has four reservoirs: the Kabini, Nugu, Hebbala and Taraka reservoirs. Ironically, however, agriculture in this taluk is rain-fed mainly because the government has failed to harness the capacity of the reservoirs. Barring the Kabini reservoir, the other reservoirs are always dry. As a result, farmers who could otherwise raise three crops are able to hardly raise one and are perennially in debt. This is one of the main reasons[citation needed] for the economic backwardness of the taluk and distress migration to cities is common.
