Abstract

The study was carried out in NWDPRA Solsinda watershed in Indore district of Madhya Pradesh during 2006–07 to assess the crop productivity and to identify the training needs of beneficiary farmers. Two hundred and ten participant farmers were interviewed for the purpose. It was found that there was a significant increase in both Soybean and ragi yield levels of participant farmers. Majority of the respondents expressed the need to train them on in situ moisture conservation, selection of specific crops and varieties, pests and disease control etc. Lack of knowledge regarding the watershed activities was the major constraint faced by the beneficiaries of watershed development programme.
