EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING PROGRAMME (Hands on Training):

Design, Planning and Evaluation of Watershed:-

     The financial, food, fuel, water and climate crises are individually serious issues, but in combination, their impact could be catastrophic for the global economy. Perhaps we stand at a crossroads. Even as we move into a global economic downturn there are growing calls for an accelerated transformation towards resource productive economics. To move forward will require new and more efficient solutions, technologies and products alongside behavioral change.

     Food-Water-Climate securities are now universally recognized as a significant global challenge and as a consequence, debate over the measures needed to tackle these issues has moved up to the top of the agenda amongst civil and scientific societies, business and government. However, we need to create much better international, national and regional structures and systems to adapt to these crises as well those to stimulate, nurture and progress new technologies at the farmers’ place.

     The ever increasing population with rising standard of living has put immense pressure on natural resources on the planet earth. The water, food and energy insecurity along with climate change are the challenging issues before us. In fact, land and water are the two basic important natural resources which play an important role in agricultural production. Water is most essential requisite to sustain life for plant, animal and human. India is endowed with vast water resources which are not distributed uniformly. Besides, many regions of the country have been passing through periodic droughts, erratic rainfall and depleting water resources. This envisages the need for the watershed based efficient management of water to meet the food and fiber requirement of ever increasing population. The watershed development activities can help to conserve soil, enhance vegetation, enhance the surface and groundwater resources, control sea water intrusion through recharging, soil reclamation, mitigate droughts etc.

     Therefore, the adoptions of the scientific approach on watershed development and management to enhance the land and water productivity require the skilled manpower in this field. During the schedules of the hands on training, the training is given on PRA technique,   survey of watershed with advanced survey instruments like DGPS, total survey station, GPS etc., demarcation of watershed using topo sheet  with remote sensing and GIS technology, soil erosion assessments, prioritization of watershed, runoff yield and volume estimation, planning of watershed development, design of various biological and engineering measures for soil and water conservation, hydrologic, hydraulic and structural  design of soil and water conservation structures. The lectures, practical and tutorials on applications of various software will be arranged which can be useful for the watershed management. During the training, the topics related to water management aspects like rainwater management, groundwater recharge, soil reclamations, mulching technology, land development and management, watershed development and management on peoples’ participatory approach, successful Gujarat model of water harvesting/sea water intrusion and MIS adoptions in watershed (GGRC PIN-MIS model). 

    In view of the importance of imparting training to the students during their course of study “The Experiential Learning for Hands on Training on “Watershed Management” is established in the Department of Soil and Water Engineering, College of Agricultural Engineering and Technology, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh (Gujarat).

    The training facility was established as per the following different sections.

(1)        Establishment of RS and GIS lab.

(2)        Procurements of all the software useful for the watershed development/ management.

(3)        Development of well-furnished training hall equipped with audio-visual aids

(4)        Development of survey lab and hydrology lab. 

RS & GIS LAB.

     The multi user remote sensing and GIS softwares like PCI Geometica, ARC GIS, Q-GIS, etc are installed in  the computers of the RS & GIS labs.  Other many software like SWAT, MikeShe,  Temporal analyst,  Visaul Mode flow, HydroGeo flow, Surfer, Aquachem, Surfer, FE flow, Storm Net,  BOSS River CAD, ET estimation software, software for Chemck dam design, LINDO, LINGO etc are also  installed for applying in analysis of the soil and water management  aspects.

TRAINING HALL EQUIPPED WITH AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS

     A well furnished training hall is also developed for educating the students during the training period. The hall is equipped with computer aided audio-visual aids.

INSTRUMENT CELL

     The DGPS, total survey stations and GPS are purchased for the watershed survey. The instruments for the groundwater level measurement and recording for monitoring and impact assessment of the watershed projects.  The use of various instruments, techniques of observation and analysis are carried out by the students.

     All the facilities developed under ELP are utilized for the UG / PG education, Farmer’s training purpose as well as for the students project and research work.
