Along with it, enhancing land productivity and rehabilitation of barren and degraded land followed by further extension of arable land should be addressed properly.
Watershed management practices should address the water use efficiency (WUE) along with water application efficiency (WAE) water conveyance efficiency (WCE).Further, the cropped area of in the watershed project should increase due to continuous availability of water in wells, ponds and other water harvesting structures.
Watershed management practices should ensure a adoption of efficient cropping pattern so that the there is efficient utilization of available natural resources. It is important to focus that there is no over exportation of available natural resources within the watershed.
Finally, it is important that Watershed management practices in the watershed project should ensure that the findings and outcome should be made public for the benefit of all the stake holders and to others in general.
