    agriculture in total income is low, increasing agricultural productivity will have only a modest impact on total household income. A classic example is rainfed rice in Uttar Pradesh, India, where reducing yield loss from drought increased mean income by just 1 %, because rice accounted for only 9 % of total household income (Singh et al. ).

    This book provides a comprehensive presentation of the realization of improved rainfed agriculture yield in semi-arid and dry land areas. The incentive of watershed programs is to increase the return on investment with over 20% for 65% of the projects that are currently underperforming.   A new book that challenges those who see India's rainfed agriculture and livestock systems as inherently vulnerable to food insecurity and poverty, will be debated at a panel event on Friday, 21 August at 3pm at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).

    The history of Agriculture in India dates back to Indus Valley Civilization and even before that in some places of Southern India. India ranks second worldwide in farm outputs. As per , agriculture employed more than 50℅ of the Indian work force and contributed 17–18% to country's GDP. In , agriculture and allied sectors like animal husbandry, forestry and fisheries accounted for. Rajeshwar Rao G, Prabhakar M, Venkatesh G, Srinivas I and Sammi Reddy K (Eds.).

Rainfed agriculture is complex, highly diverse and risk prone. It is characterized by low levels of productivity and input usage coupled with vagaries of monsoon emanating from climate change; resulting in wide variation and instability in crop yields.

On the basis of case studies from varied agricultural and ecological regions in Asia and Africa, chapters discuss the need for adopting new paradigms between rainfed and irrigated agriculture, catchment/micro-watershed management approaches, upgrades in science-based development and more investments in rainfed areas.

Rainfed agriculture produces much of the food consumed globally and by poor communities in developing countries. It accounts for more than 95% of farmed land in sub-Saharan Africa; 90% in Latin America; 75% in the Near East and North Africa; 65% in East Asia; and 60% in South Asia.

India ranks first in rainfed agriculture globally in both area (86 Mha) and the value of produce. Rainfed regions in India contribute substantially toward food grain production including 44% of rice, 87% of coarse cereals (sorghum (Sorghum bicolor), pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum), maize (Zea mays)), and 85% of food legumes, 72% of oilseeds, 65% of cotton, and 90% of minor by: Rainfed agriculture accounts for more than 75% of the cropped area in the world.

One-third of the developing world’s population lives in the less-favored rainfed regions [1]. In India, rainfed agriculture accounts for 60% of the cropped area, and is the food basket for. The chapters of the book have been selected and arranged in such a manner as to lead the students through the entire gamut of rainfed agriculture supported by suitable examples and diagrams.

The topics covered are most relevant in view of growing interests in rainfed agriculture technologies. The material presented in this book represents an effort to bring a diverse group of people together to present a truly cross-disci- plinary perspective on rainfed agriculture.

The complete set of books should be invaluable for resource managers, researchers and field imple- menters. A national network of organisations with the agenda to affect the nature, amount and delivery of public investments in rainfed regions.
