Water Productivity Mapping of Major Indian Crops

Publisher: NABARD

This study attempts to develop first-of-its kind maps and charts for the “Water productivity mapping of major Indian crops” which shall help in improved understanding and targeted policy and investment interventions for improving our agriculture water use. This water productivity report addresses how the cropping patterns (using 10 major crops under study, covering more than 60 per cent of gross cropped area) across states can be re-calibrated with a view to maximise crop productivity per unit of water consumed/applied for irrigation.
