 DESCRIPTION
spacer

The manual has been written keeping in view the problems being faced by the technicians and extension workers with practical guidelines  on the implementation of water harvesting schemes.  The manual is also useful for wider audience, such as rural development specialists and planners.

The main focus of the manual is on simple, field scale systems for improved production of crops, trees and rangeland species in drought prone areas.  The manual is also relevant to arid and semi-arid areas in all  parts of the world where the basic problem low and erratic rainfall, high rates of runoff, and unreliable food production are similar.

It provides the field worker with selection criteria and detailed technical  designs for the various systems, as well as information on field layout and construction. The author has made all efforts to keep the manual a practical working document, using all related material other than text.

It is hoped that the manual will serve as a useful field and guide for the implementation of water harvesting schemes. It can be used as a general reference manual by all researchers.
