Abstract:

Over exploitation and mismanagement of natural resources have resulted in adverse effects such as degradation, biomass deterioration and siltation of tanks. Increasing food needs of growing population demands the efficient use of natural resources in a comprehensive manner. In addition, the low per capita availability of land, erratic and uneven distribution of rains, undulating topography, improper resource management, traditional cropping programmes and recurrence of droughts having cumulative effect leading to lower productivity and higher risk particularly in dryland farming. This calls for optimum utilization of natural resources by scientific planning and action oriented approach. In this connection, taking the present day importance of watershed development and capabilities of Remote sensing, GIS and GPS technologies is important.
