Bail refers to a classification of cultivated land according to inscriptions from South Canara (modern Dakshina Kannada).—Bail comprises all the low-lying fields which are abundantly supplied with water, the direct annual rainfall being supplemented by water brought by channels from rivulets or streams, or raised from rivers by baling or by picottahs. In some parts of South Kanara, three paddy crops, called, yenelu or kartika, suggi and kolake respectively are raised on the best land of the bail kind. In others, it gives two crops of paddy and one of dry grain.
