Soil and water conservation is main activity necessary for development of any village. In Malia block of Rajkot districts we have carried out extensive soil and water conservation activities. In a government survey it has been recorded that all villages of Malia (47) are facing the threat of salinity. Malia is also covered under Drought Prone Area criteria by the state.
PVK has been carrying out soil and water conservation activity in the villages located near to the Little Rann of Kutch (LRK) to control salinity and reduce drought proneness of these villages.
Under this program we have build 300 farm-bunds, 50 farm ponds, constructed check dams-50, 5-ponds and 3 drinking water wells. Provided inputs for improvement in agricultural practices by preparing a model farm in 1.5 ha. land in Malia block.
