Abstract

Land and water are finite natural resources, which are diminishing due to indiscriminate and unscrupulous exploitation. Ever increasing population is also posing a challenge to produce more from the available resources. Proper understanding of the concept of land, water and energy productivity has become quite relevant in recent days. The technologies/ strategies in which input application is more precise, efficient and cost effective and output is adequate in quantity, excellent in quantity, well in time and profitable, will lead to enhancement of land, water and energy productivity in agriculture. In this paper, concept of land, water and energy productivity, assessment procedure of crop and agricultural water productivity and case study of Pabnawa minor in Kurukshetra, Haryana (India), have been discussed and various means/ pathways to enhance productivity by employing suitable technologies/strategies have been highlighted.
