All-India Coordinated Research Project for Dryland Agriculture was established, and the research emphasis shifted to a multidisciplinary approach to tackle the problems.

Dryland ecosystems support a surprising amount of biodiversity. Desertification, however, is a significant land degradation problem in the arid, semi-arid and dry sub-humid regions of the world. Deterioration of soil and plant cover has adversely affected 70% of the world’s drylands as a result of extended droughts as well as mismanagement of. Dryland farming is frequently defined as crop production in areas with less than mm of annual precipitation, but this definition omits a critical component of the equation, evaporation potential. Operatively, dryland farming is practiced where annual potential water evaporation exceeds annual precipitation. The example for the Central Great Plains of the United States in Fig. 1 illustrates.

Dryland farming can be a risky business. In the semi-arid High Plains, farmers manage to grow crops in the face of extremely variable weather and limited rainfall. Our goal is to improve the resilience of dryland cropping systems through the identification, evaluation, and communication of innovations in production practices and soil management.

Since independence India has made much progress in agriculture. Indian agriculture, which grew at the rate of about 1 percent per annum during the fifty years before Independence, has grown at the rate of about percent per annum in the post-Independence era.

They are also associated with arid conditions, areas prone.
