The dynamics of Punjab agriculture during the foreign rule was mainly due to the development of one of the largest irrigation systems in the world. This study provides an account of the salient features of this irrigation system and analyses its impact on the agrarian economy and society of the province. An attempt is also made to indicate what the investment in the canal construction programme meant for the colonial state in political, military, economic and financial terms.
