A study was conducted during 2009-10 to 2010-11 in Budhara watershed in Ambah block of Morena district to assess the impact of watershed programme.Positive and significant effect of watershed progrmme was noticed in the study. Area and productivity of remunerative crops like arhar and wheat significantly increased with a change in arable area, agricultural area, irrigated area, cropping intensity, and area of horticultural crops. However, the cattle population, major and micro soil nutrients and its availability was also increased as well as improved fodder availability.
