Abstract

The development of holistic and sustainable growth in dryland agriculture in Karnataka, Krishi Bhagya Scheme was introduced during 2014-15. The primary objective of the scheme was to harvest surplus run-off water through dug-out farm ponds constructed under scheme for protective and life saving irrigation at critical crop stages for enhancing crop productivity and income of resource poor dryland farmers. The scheme helps to integrate different farming system such as agriculture, horticulture, fisheries and dairying for creating employment opportunities, reduction of out-migration and ultimately enhance the on-farm and off-farm income of farming communities in dryland areas. Further, farm ponds constructed under the scheme will enhance the dryland crop productivity up to 25-30 per cent as compare to existing one.
