Water and soil are the two fundamental resources on which people rely for existence and development. The development of society is determined by its capacity to use these resources. Some of these resources may in time become exhausted or deteriorated. Gane is characterized by its hot and humid climate comes under Konkan region. This region comes under heavy rainfall with average annual rainfall 3500 mm. The ambient temperature 7.5 ℃ to 38.5℃, relative humidity varies from 55 per cent to 99 per cent in region. Continuous Contour Trenches structure are rain water harvesting structures which is used for improve soil moisture profile. It also recharges groundwater by infiltration provides water and during lean seasons. Continuous contour Trenches structure helps to improve the living conditions of farmers. These types of water harvesting structures are economically and socially acceptable. Thus, continuous contour Trenches are found to play a major role in the agricultural production, particularly during summer season.
