  The state’s net agricultural land is million hectares (MH). Out of this cultivated land, nearly 75% is rainfed, depending on inconsistent rainfall during the southwest monsoon. Given that 60% of the state population is sustained by agriculture-related livelihood, the focus on watershed development activities in Karnataka is essential. of watershed approach evolved in India is shown in Figure-1 (Wani et al. and ). Various watershed development programs like Drought Prone Area Program (DPAP), Desert Development Program (DDP), River Valley Project (RVP), National Watershed Development Project for Rain-fed Areas (NWDPRA) and Integrated. This book provides a comprehensive presentation of the realization of improved rainfed agriculture yield in semi-arid and dry land areas. The incentive of watershed programs is to increase the return on investment with over 20% for 65% of the projects that are currently underperforming. Besides tech. Mandwa is a small village in Nagpur district of the dreaded Vidarbha region of Maharashtra. Season upon season of failed rains had rendered the land unproductive and the villagers unemployed.

Watershed management (WSM) is the most widely adopted technology in developed as well as developing countries due to its suitability across climatic conditions. Watershed technology is suitable to protect and enhance soil fertility, which is deteriorating at an alarming rate with agricultural intensification in high as well as low rainfall by: 9.   Here you can download the free lecture Notes of Watershed Management Notes PDF – WM Notes PDF materials with multiple file links to download.
