Abstract

Watershed development programme has proved advantageous in rainfed areas for improving agricultural productivity. With the improvement of land as a result of soil and water conservation treatments and subsequently improvement in the moisture storage in soil profile, the productivity of land increased. Therefore, this paper reviews some of the important results of various studies conducted at different locations with reference to rainfed areas to assess the impact of watershed development programmes on crop yield.
