Rainfall received during past ten years, i.e. from 1998 to 2007 at Meerut was analyzed to plan the rice cultivation in the region. Analysis of data reveal that out of 10 years only one year was as drought year on the basis of annual rainfall while drought was more frequent on summer basis as compared to winter basis.

A field study was conducted at the Alanthurai watershed in order to estimate the soil erosion status using GIS and USLE. The annual soil loss values estimated from the USLE is represented pictorially using Arc view 3.2a version of GIS software.

The crops in the Shivaliks of Punjab usually suffer water stress under limited and erratic water supply condition. A field experiment was conducted on a sandy loam soils during 2004-05 and 2005-06 to study the effect of tillage and nitrogen management on grain yield, water expense and soil physical properties in maize-wheat cropping sequence under rainfed conditions.

The effects of Acacia tortilis, Eucalyptus camaldulensis, Dalbergia sissoo and Tecomella undulata based windbreaks, varying in their morphological characters, were assessed on wind regimes of downwind/leeward side on farmers' field in Jaisalmer district of arid Western Rajasthan.

Efficient management of nutrients constitutes one of the most important factors to achieve agronomic and environmental targets of intensive crop production systems. Agricultural intensification requires increased uptake of nutrients by crops. The depletion of nutrient reserves from the soil is often a hidden form of land degradation.

Wetlands ecosystems are a natural source of local, regional and global significance. Historically their high level of plant and animal (especially bird) diversity is perhaps the major reason why wetland protection has become a high priority worldwide, supported by international agreements, such as Ramsar Convention and the International Convention of Biological Diversity.

Computer based programming models are useful analysis tools to understand the watershed planning cum management problem and to find solutions through the best management practices (BMPs) and bio-engineering measures.

Rain water conservation techniques, like large compartmental bunding and furrow opening in between the crop rows in combination with organic sources were evaluated for their impact on increasing the productivity of cotton+soybean intercropping system.

A study was carried out for the simulation of sediment yield from an agricultural watershed falling in laterite zone of West Bengal using event scale Modified Universal Soil Loss Equation (MUSLE).

Land degradation, subsistence farming with poor crop harvests and lack of employment opportunities has resulted in poverty in eastern ghats of Orissa. To avert the situation, IWDP and TDET watershed projects were implemented in Kokriguda watershed which represents the resource position of this tribal region, during 1997 to 2003.
