WATER CONSERVATION MANAGEMENT

Water is essential for all life on Earth. Water forms over 85 – 90% of the plant body by green or fresh weight basis. It is a constituent of protoplasm. It acts as a solvent. Water is essential for many activities like nutrients dissolve process, transpiration , photosynthesis , food formation, maintain turgidity of cells, germination of seeds, transpiration chemical, physical and biological reaction in soil , temperature regulation etc.

At present there are many challenges of Indian soils :

  • Uneven Rainfall distribution
  • Run off of water ( Soil Erosion )
  • Increasing salinity of water
  • Occurrence of Pesticide residue and heavy metals in irrigation water.
  • Over-allocation of existing supplies

Objective of Water management

  • Improvement in soil structure
  • Improve irrigation use efficiency.
  • To make farmers aware about importance of water in crop production ( Excess /less)
  • Promotion on farm water storage structure
  • To know about water quality
  • Promotion of crops and varieties which require less water.
  • Land engineering

What we do?

  • Plantation
  • Promotion of Irrigation systems like drip , sprinklers etc
  • Rain water harvesting technologies like Tube well recharge, well recharge, on farm pond etc.
  • Drainage improvement
  • Farm contour bunding
  • Mulching
  • Controlled irrigation
  • Use of Organic manures to improve soil moisture holding capacity.
  • Water testing
  • Training and Practical Demonstration of technologies at farm level.
  • Making Village Subject matter specialist / master trainer / resource person ( Jal Rakshak )
  • Linking farmers with Government department schemes.
