2. In Situ Soil Moisture Conservation Practices

A) Cultivation on Ridges & Furrows

Soybean + Tur Inter cropping

Cotton cultivation on Contour Ridges & Furrows

  • Benefits

  • Controls soil erosion

  • Increased crop yield by 12 to 61 percent

2. In Situ Soil Moisture Conservation Practices

D) Large beds for rabicrop

  • Benefits

  • Enhanced soil moisture by 40 %

  • Increased Crop yield by 30 to 35%

2. In Situ Soil Moisture Conservation Practices

E) Opening of furrows after sowing

  • Opening of alternate furrows 30 days after sowing

  • Retain higher moisture during dry spell,

  • Enhances rain water and crop productivity.

3 . Protective Irrigation

Greengram + Pigeonpea

  • Farm ponds constructed by Agril. Department

  • Stored rain water for protective irrigation during dry spell

  • Enhanced crop and water productivity.

Long Term Measures

1)Farm Ponds

  • 1.34 lakhFarm Ponds are completed under different schemes

  • Irrigation Available for about 1.50 lakh ha. area

Long Term Measures

2)Series of Check Dams

  • Series of Checkdams completed - 63319

  • Irrigation Available for Area - 1.58 lakh ha

  • Groundwater level increased – 1 to 2.5 mt

Long Term Measures

3)Desiltingof Old Water Storage Structures

  • Desiltation of 20258 storage structures

  • Restoration of Capacity by 75,000 TCM

  • 75.2 Million Cubic Meter fertile clay is made available for improvement of barren land.
