Kolar River (Madhya Pradesh)
The Kolar river arises in the Vindhya Range of Sehore district and flows in a south westerly direction to meet the Narmada near Nasrullahganj in the Raisen district of Madhya Pradesh. Its total drainage area of 1,347 sq.km. is spread across the two districts. The upper part of the river basin lies at a elevation of 350 to 600 metres and much of it is under tropical deciduous forest. The river debouches into the plains near Jholiapur. Much of the upper basin has poor soils and agriculture here is largely of wheat and gram. The lower basin has better soils and a flatter slope and has been used extensively bunded allowing for impounding water during the monsoons.
