Description

It rains for about 40 days in semi-arid South Karnataka. Agriculture is however booming and the demand for water rises. Bore-wells are being sunk to depths of 1000 feet and the old wells now become store houses of water to be pumped again.

What can bring a balance to the hydrological system? Crop water demand has to be lower than rainfall actually much lower. Evapo-transpiration losses will need to be lowered and recharge of the groundwater enhanced. Here are some ways in which this is happening.
