Résumé partiel
Agriculture is the backbone of Indian economy, as 46 per cent of total agricultural production of the country comes from rainfed farming, which is 70 per cent ( 105 million hectares ) of its total 142 million hectares of arable land. Considering the importance of rainfed farming in Indian economy, for the development of rainfed area. Government of India launched National Watershed Development Project for Rainfed Areas • ( NWDPRA ) in July 1986 during seventh plan period, to increase and stabilize the agricultural production and narrowing down regional socio-economic imbalance in rainfed areas through development of natural resource base, diversify the rainfed farming system, tapping the local resource potential to attain higher productivity and services for improving standard of living of rural poor. Gujarat is predominantly the state for dryland agriculture, 77 per cent of its total cultivable area is rainfed. Evenafter, harnessing all the irrigation potential, about 55 per cent area would be remain under rainfed farming. Realising the problems and potential of rainfed farming as well as to overcome arid and semi arid situation in the state. National Watershed Development Project for Rainfed Area ( NWDPRA ) was introduced in the state in 1986-87. At present the new verson of NWDPRA of eighth plan is in operation in 19 districts covering 168 micro watersheds in the state. A considerable time has been elapsed after implementation of NWDPRA in the state therefore, it is quite essential to know the consequent effects of this programme on socio-techno-economic development/changes in beneficiary farmers of watershed area.
