Slide 2

Structure of Presentation Water & Agriculture Water Consumption by Thirsty Crop Thirsty Crops Challenges Addressing the Challenges Framework Project Area Description Project Process Results Project Outcome Project Potential Project Impact

Slide 3

Water & Agriculture in India Irrigation devours more than 80% of the accessible water in the nation Source: (1997)

Slide 4

Water & Agriculture in India (cont) Changing pattern of water accessibility… clear from sufficient to push and will strike to shortage inside a traverse of 75 years

Slide 5

Water utilization by Thirsty Crops

Slide 6

… ..WHY THIRSTY ARE SOME CROPS Heavy necessity of water per unit yield of deliver Blue water Green Water Gray water Identified Thirsty Crops Sugarcane: 1500 – 3000 liters/kg of stick Cotton: 7000 – 29000 liters/kg of fiber Rice: 3000 – 5000 liters/kg of grain Basis of recognizable proof Usage of water Usage of data sources and in this way misfortunes Area under development

Slide 7

Challenges PRODUCE MORE WITH LESS Proper ranch water administration Introducing idea of Integrated Plant Nutrient Management Promote routine of Integrated Pest Management at homestead level

Slide 8

Addressing the Challenges WWF-India\'s Initiative Sustainable Cotton Initiative Project in Andhra Pradesh & Maharastra Sustainable Sugar Initiative Project in Maharastra

Slide 9

Available Water Fertilizer Impact Water to be held for other biological community capacities Market changing towards reasonable generation base Improved vocations for the maker Pesticide Outcome Farmers adjusted to BMPs The idea of creating better cotton/sugar picking up energy Results Improve water efficiency Reduction in synthetic information Improve in gross edge Thirsty Crop Better Management Practices on Thirsty Crop FRAMEWORK

Slide 10

Project Area Warrangal (Andhra Pradesh) Aurangabad (Maharastra)

Slide 11

Implementation Approach AREA DESCRIPTION Dominated by products like Paddy, Cotton & Sugarcane Region is set apart by immense utilization of compound pesticide (extending from 30 – half of the separate state utilization) Traditional water use in horticulture taking a substantial toll on ground water (e.g. surge water system, serpentine wrinkles) Majority of the region is in fact unintervened Area goes under Godavari bowl, a need bowl for WWF agri & water works

Slide 12

Implementation Approach PROJECT PROCESS Development of Better Management Practices for each of the parched yields under the accompanying directing standards Improving water profitability Reduction in concoction composts Lessening utilization of pesticides Improving gross edge of the ranchers

Slide 13

Implementation Approach PROJECT PROCESS (Cont) Demonstration of trial plot Raising of Demonstration plot BMP exhibited through executing accomplices Awareness crusade through Farmers\' Field School /Learning Group/Farmers\' Group Creating Resource Center Formation of Society under Cooperative act Outcome observed by M&E accomplice

Slide 14

RESULTS Sugarcane 48% of water diminishment in BMP fields Improvement in juice quality 21% of decrease in substance manure An additional benefit of Rs 4700/ - per section of land/BMP agriculturist (Source: NABARD report) Cotton 49.4% of water decrease in BMP fields 81% reducing of compound pesticides in BMP field 18% of lessening in synthetic manure An additional benefit of Rs 4000/ - per section of land/BMP agriculturist ( Source: CRIDA report )

Slide 15

Implementation Approach PROJECT OUTCOME Around 17000 ha of cotton developing region & 8000 ha of stick region would be under BMP Farmers\' moving towards smaller scale water system to enhance water efficiency & benefit per unit of water The example of overcoming adversity has set out the idea of delivering better cotton/sugar through an ecologically maintainable harvest generation framework… .and picking up force Industry advancing practices which is earth reasonable

Slide 16

Implementation Approach PROJECT POTENTIAL Project Potential Water utilize proficiency : 75 – 90% 14.7 BCM of water can be spared every year in cotton development 37 BCM of water can be spared yearly in stick development Usual Scenario Water utilize effectiveness : 40 – half 30 BCM of water yearly is given to cotton 78 BCM of water every year is given to sugarcane edit

Slide 17

Implementation Approach PROJECT IMPACT Water to be held for working of other environment administrations Water quality to be reestablished Improved vocations for the ranchers Attaining item showcase soundness through ideal asset use
