Reclamation of ill-drained area of Gunj watershed and its effect on yield performance of crops

Reclamation of ill-drained area of Gunj watershed and its effect on yield performance of crops

Journal of Soils and Crops 2(1): 80-83

A poorly-drained 20 ha area in the Gunj watershed (Amravati division of Maharashtra) was reclaimed using 6 main drains placed 0.9-1.0 m deep and 24 lateral drains 0.6-0.8 m deep. Data on cropping pattern, total production and gross income is presented for the years 1985-90. Crops studied included sorghum, cotton, pigeonpeas, black gram rice, green gram sunflowers, safflower and wheat. There was an increase in production of cash crops like cotton, pigeonpeas and safflower after reclamation.
