About Department 

The department of Soil and Water Conservation Engineering is conducting teaching of B. Tech., M. Tech., Ph.D. programmes. Also taking active participation in carrying out need based research and extension activities in the University. At present only 4 faculty members are working in the department to carry on all the activities related to teaching, research and extension as well as conducting/guiding student research for M. Tech. and Ph. D. programme. The faculty in the department is involved in different extension activities of the University and also involved in carrying out other University level assignments. The department main thrust to develop the farmers oriented technology for rainwater harvesting and conservation of soil and water resources in changing climatic climate a future challenge to upcoming community.

Historical perspective of the department: The Department of Soil and Water Management was established at the time of inception of the faculty of Agricultural Engineering and Technology in 1984. Which was latter bifurcated into two separate department ciz, Department of Soil and water Conservation Engineering and Department of Irrigation and Drainage Engineering during 1992.  The department has bright opportunity to developed farmer oriented technology for mitigating climatic change parameters for sustainable agricultural productivity.

Mandate

In changing climate scenario, there is a need to change our research priorities especially under rainfed agriculture for judicious use of available rainfall and amelioration of stresses due to biotic and abiotic factors. Conservation agriculture has potential for managing the declining soil productivity besides, managing the climate change. Studies have found that the threat to water security is very high over central India, along the mountain ranges of the Western Ghats, and in India’s northeastern states.

  1. To undertake, formulate and implementation of site-specific schemes to conserve and manage soil and water resources in the region.
  2. To take up appropriate water conservation measures in and outside forest area, impounding of water wherever sites permit to increase ground water recharge and prevent floods.
  3. To coordinate with the institutions and departments working on water conservation in the state.
  4. To provide technical guidance for preparation of schemes on scientific basis for other line departments and implement catchment area treatment projects wherever required.
  5. Conduct hydrological evaluation of watersheds under different land use and management practices with the objective of establishing rainfall-runoff relationships.
  6. To create awareness about soil and water conservation by adopting suitable communication strategy and extension measures.
  7. Teaching to U G (B Tech Agri Engg), M Tech (Agril Engg) and Ph D (Agril Engg), Research and Extension
 

 

Research Activities

Thrust area:

The future thrust areas on which the department is focusing are:

  • Use of remote sensing and GIS technology for conservation, monitoring and improvement of natural resources.
  • Optimization of on farm water harvesting strategies and development of ground water resources.
  • Studies on the hydrological behavior of the watersheds for developing and monitoring natural resources.
  • Drought characterization and monitoring for effective assessment of ground level facts, so as to warn the farmers or suggest suitable remedial measures.
  • Development of contingent cropping strategy for major rainfed crops of the region with special emphasis on soil and water conservation to cope up with delay in monsoon and midseason droughts i.e., climate change situation.
  • Location specific soil and water conservation strategies for minimizing adverse impact of rainfall variation.
  • Water security to various sectors of the community in addition to imbibing water literacy among the citizens of our nation via implementation of various rainwater and sustainable water management systems.
  • Location specific bio-engineering measures for different degraded lands.
  • Effective rain water management in catchment areas though interbasin water utilization.
  • Water conservation literacy and Awareness.

2.  Aridity index is recommended for identification of agricultural droughts.

3.  Agricultural drought characterization study in 32 talukas of six drought affected districts of Vidarbha indicate the occurrence of high intensity agricultural drought once in four years in the talukas mentioned below. It is suggested that the development agency should plan and execute for water harvesting during normal and drought years to mitigate the impact of agricultural drought.
