ACHIEVEMENTS/ PROGRESS UNDER VARIOUS SCHEMES

Soil and Water are two vital natural resources for sustaining agriculture production in the state. Both these resources are under tremendous pressure and deteriorating at a faster rate. Soils are affected with problems like water erosion, water logging, salt affected soils, over use of pesticides & chemicals etc. About 39% of Soils come under the category of severely degraded soils. Similarly water, which is an important input for sustaining agriculture, is depleting at an alarming rate. About 70% cultivated area of the state depends on underground water. More than 60% of area, where the depletion is very high, has come under dark category areas. The department of Soil & Water Conservation is playing a key role in conservation of both soil & water so that these resources are judiciously used in view of the sustainability of production and need for diversification in agriculture.
