This research article is based on action research done in Akole block of Ahmednagar district. It aims at promoting production of cereals, pulses, seasonal vegetables, fruits, milk and meat to meet the balanced nutritional needs of the people through local specific crop planning. The whole process involved in the study was monitored through using GIS RS tool.
Participatory Net Planning is a method to carry out surveys and plan area treatments and minor drainage line treatments in each and every gat/survey number of the watershed in collaboration with the farmer couple.
WOTR’s Net Planning software prepares and maintains micro to macro level databases of land resources, existing and proposed treatments, and costs involved. It proposes various possible post-treatment options for land use. This software generates the land resource classes as per the soil slope, depth, texture and erosion status. More than one treatment can be entered for one gat/survey number. The software can also generates a proposal. It is useful at the Project level for project formulation purposes.
