Water Storage for Vegetable Production

The productivity of rainfed vegetable farms depends largely on the availability of supplemental water. Not only crop failure can be avoided, but also increasing cropping intensity can be made possible with a permanent water storage system, particularly those situated in sloping and undulating areas. A small water impoundment also allows for other income-generating activities like dry season cropping, fish culture, agroforestry, and ivestock raising.
