Abstract

Based on research experience gained during the recent past, appropriate cost effective conservation measures for land and water have been suggested in the present paper. Cost effective land and water management practices have been developed and verified at field scale for conserving and efficiently utilising these resources for enhanced sustainable productivity. However, the resource base and physical features of the site concerned will enable one to select the most appropriate land and water management measures. Paper presents the results of series of long term studies carried out to assess the impact of different measures on the conservation of land, water and plant nutrients and productivity of crops grown in black soil regions of central India.
