Brief Description of Activities Performed

Activities are conservation of water harvesting structure, land development viz. contour bunding, land leveling, reclamation of sand laden areas including drainage course and water bodies/ agronomic and vegetative measures viz. agroforestry, conservation forming, alley cropping etc. Detailed Soil Survey on Mayurakshi Command areas including land capability and land irritability classification; identification and codification of micro watersheds; identification and display of different landforms and land use in maps. Based on the survey reports land use planning for crop diversification on watershed basis is done. viz. NWDPRA.

Description

1.

Detailed soil survey of the command area for land use planning to develop  productivity and cropping intensity through diversification

2.

Identification, selection and codification of micro watersheds for development of land, water and human resource.
3. Mechanical measures viz. excavation /re-excavation of water harvesting structure, contour bunding for development of land and water and to check erosion.
4 Agronomic and vegetative measures to check erosion and development of           productivity and development of Land Equivalent Ratio.
5 Monitoring, providing technical guidance and acting as facilitator for execution of different schemes under NWDPRA
