dc.description.abstract Emerging issues due to intensive agriculture in the Punjab region are declining crop diversity; stagnation/slow growth in productivity; recent decline in rainfall; and depletion in groundwater resources. The project aimed to develop long term climate and socio-economic scenarios to inform water, energy and agriculture policy while reaching out to farmer cooperatives. Tensiometers were provided towards better understanding and use of watersheds, testing moisture retention and soil water balance. A mobile phone application was also developed. The presentation slides depict these applications and how they were utilized. en
