Mid-Himalayan Watershed Development Project has been reckoned as an instrument to bring the second-generation Green Revolution through, increasing productivity in rainfed areas. The study revealed that the dependency ratio with respect to total workers was found to be 0.40 in case of beneficiary families and 0.26 in case of non- beneficiary families. It was found that with the interventions of the project there has significant change in area of major crops, increase in productivity and net returns of the beneficiary farms. The change in area of vegetables was significantly high in both Kharif and Rabi season i.e., 81.48 and 433.33 per cent under beneficiary as compared to non-beneficiary farms. The increase in productivity was found to be highest in case of potato (40.91%) followed by ginger (37.50%), chilli (33.37%) and tomato (28.89%) on beneficiary farms as compared to non-beneficiary farms. The increase in net returns was found to be highest in case of potato (139.27%) followed by ginger (90.62%), tomato (61.72%) and chilli (49.91%) on beneficiary farms as compared to non-beneficiary farms. The percentage change in the net returns per hundred plants of mango, almond and apple crops was found to be 39.75 per cent, 20.31 per cent and 14.60 per cent higher in case of beneficiaries as compared to non-beneficiaries.The average output- input ratio of maize, wheat, urad, kulath, okra, cauliflower, cabbage, tomato, chilli, ginger, onion and potato were calculated as 1.53, 1.47, 1.23, 1.38, 1.73, 1.66, 1.48, 1.80, 1.71, 1.77, 1.63 and 1.65, respectively in beneficiary farms as compared to 1.50, 1.33, 1.22, 1.35, 1.59, 1.55, 1.59, 1.46, and 1.30 in non-beneficiary farms.
