Crop and Contingency Planning for Rainfed Regions of India, CRIDA. Rainfed agriculture accounts for more than 75% of the cropped area in the world. One-third of the developing world’s population lives in the less-favored rainfed regions [1]. In India, rainfed agriculture accounts for 60% of the cropped area, and is the food basket for the poor, with a millet-dominant crop .

Rainfed Farming - A Profile of Doable Technologies. B Venkateswarlu, YS Ramakrishna, G Subba Reddy, VM Mayande, GR Korwar and M Prabhakar ( MB) Crop and Contingency Planning for Rainfed Regions in India - a compendium by AICRPDA. G Subba Reddy, YS Ramakrishna, G Ravindra Chary and GR Maruthi Sankar ( MB) Rainfed agriculture is a type of farming that relies on rainfall for water. It provides much of the food consumed by poor communities in developing example, rainfed agriculture accounts for more than 95% of farmed land in sub-Saharan Africa, 90% in Latin America, 75% in the Near East and North Africa, 65% in East Asia, and 60% in South Asia. Rainfed agriculture is complex, highly diverse and risk prone. It is characterized by low levels of productivity and input usage coupled with vagaries of monsoon emanating from climate change; resulting in wide variation and instability in crop yields. Contingency Plan, is the need of the hour to stabilize crop stands, production and income in rainfed regions. For the last four decades, across All Incdia Coordinated Research Project for Dryland.

  Watershed management practices are adopted in rainfed regions of the world, including India to alleviate the agro-ecological problems and to improve the productivity in these regions (Dile et al., , Kroeger et al., , Reddy et al., , Singh et al., , Vema et al., ). India must focus on rainfed farming. There was a time when it was said that the Indian budget was a gamble on the monsoons. That is not the case any more, with industrial production soaring and agriculture on the margins. Irrigation allows farmers to grow a second, often higher-value, crop, such as fruits and vegetables that are more sensitive to water-stress. Once farmers are able to grow more lucrative crops, they are on the road to livelihood and food security. In several regions of the world rainfed agriculture generates among the world’s highest yields. the form of a book, “Manual on Contingency Agriculture Plan”. I hope that the document will be helpful to those involved in planning and promoting contingency measures including the NICRA KVKs of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Maharashtra.
