Fundamentals of Watershed Management Technology

G.D. Singh (Author) T.C. Poonia (Author)
Synopsis Soil and water are the most precious gifts of nature. Increase in food production can be achieved only when soil and water are efficiently managed and conserved. Natural resource management and control of resource degradation is now a necessity in almost every country of the world. The watershed is a manageable hydrologic unit that makes harmonious use of the prevailing climate, soils, water, locally available inputs and human resources for increasing agriculture productivity. This book covers all the aspects of watershed management programmes including appropriate conservation measures at different slopes, design criteria of soil, water conservation measures and water harvesting structures, based on the field problems and experience of the different watershed projects and local land users. It also deals with an effective design for soil and water conservation measures, strategies for soils, water erosion control and water harvesting. This book will be a guideline for progressive farmers, students, research workers and in the preparation of effective project reports on watershed development for a given area. Project planners, field workers and project executives of Government and non-governmental organisations involved in implementation of watershed development and management projects will be benefited as well as students pursuing higher studies in soil and water conservation as part of their courses in geography, environmental science, agriculture, agricultural engineering, hydrology, ecology and civil engineering.
