In TDF Wadi project number of activities being carried out. we have a head wise look to get a brief idea about.

Wadi Development-

On the basis of demand from the project beneficiaries and as per our experience in ongoing projects, we are planting 40 Mango plants, 10 or 20 Amla and 10 lemon plants. All these species are suitable to the area and have good marketing potential.size of the WADI will be one acre per family. All 4000 are small and marginal farmers. Hence, 4000 WADI’s will be developed under the project.

Soil Conservation

The general topography of the land in the project area is undulating with slope between 2 to 10%. The major soil conservation measures required in the area would be farm bunding and contour trenches to arrest further erosion of top soil and to reduce the runoff for in situ conservation of rain water for retaining soil moisture over extended periods. The treatments would also help in increasing the water table. All wadi holder suppose to complete their soil conservation work before plantation.

Water Resource Development-
   Vanrai Dam- There are many small creeks flowing in the project area. Water is available up to early January-March in a year. It is proposed to construct low cost check dams using sand filled cement bags, small stone and murrum. This would help the farmers to meet the water requirement during Nov-Dec up to March.

        Dug Well- There is water scarcity in the project villages. The ponds and small lakes drys up during summer season. During the initial meeting and PRA, the community expressed need of water resource structures such as few dug wells to meet the critical water requirement during the peak summer season of March-June of a year. These resources will also be used to meet the drinking water requirement of the villages.

      Cart with Drum- In case of non availability of water, it has to be carried from a long distance. For this purpose each village will get two bullock cart and one drum. It is proposed to supply two bullock carts to each village. Farmers will use their own bullocks. The Village Planning Committee will be responsible for monitoring and maintenance of the bullock cart and drum. 

        Storage Drums- Drums of 200 L capacity will be provided to all farmers for storage of water for manual drip irrigation. These can be used to store irrigation water carried by the bullock cart from different water harvesting structures. These drums will also be used for Amrut Pani preparation. 

Pump set- Provision has been made for dug well, low cost check dams and bullock carts. It is proposed that each village will be supported with pump sets for lifting water from well/ dam. Each Bullock cart will be fixed with a pump set so that the farmers can lift the water from whatever sources available with them and transport the same to their fields.
Promotion of sustainable agriculture-
Model plot- Presently maize, soya and jowar in mansoon and chilly, wheat and gram in winter are the  major crop grown in the project area. However, it is a pity that yield per acre of all these crops is much lower than what the normal yield should be. This is mainly due to improper agriculture practices, lack of water, soil and soil nutrition management. With better management, use of correct techniques and improved variety of seeds, yield on the same land can go up twice. we have proved it by Various model plots of differet crops.
Fodder on Bund- In order to prevent soil erosion and to fix atmospheric nitrogen, it has been decided to grow fodder and oil grass on the bunds. 
Micro enterprise to land less-
 The project envisages supporting 200 landless families in the project area by providing them with capacity building, investment credit and marketing support for undertaking sustainable micro-entrepreneurship activities. It is planned that landless families would now be motivated to go in for goatry, poultry yard, dairy business, hotel, sundry shop, etc.
