Efficient rainwater management for enhanced productivity in arid and semi-arid drylands uri icon

abstract

  • Rainfed areas are the hot spot of poverty, water scarcity, land degradation, and low social and physical capital development. However, vast potential of rainfed agriculture remains untapped as current rainfed crop yields range between 1-1.5 t ha-1., which can be easily more than doubled with improved management. Main constrains for increase crop yields are not only limited water but also by inappropriate management of water and soil resources?
