Agricultural Experts said that, for improving agriculture productivity, better soil and water management practices are essential. Water is the critical factor for the cultivation of crops and to obtain a bumper crop. But currently, world is experiencing scarcity of water and it has also a negative impact on the production of crops. Therefore, the farmers must adopt efficient strategies for water usage.
They said that in order to obtain higher production at low expense, land should be properly prepared. Soil must be thoroughly ploughed, so that it will allow proper drainage and aeration. In this way water runoff can be avoided. Farmers must ensure weed free crop because weeds also compete with plants for water resource. By the elimination of weeds, the majority of the water would be available to the crops. For the efficient use of water, training programs will be conducted in different villages.
