Rainfed areas in India generate 60% of agriculture produce, 75% of pulses and more than 90% of sorghum, millet, and groundnut although these areas are the hot spots of poverty, water scarcity, droughts, land degradation, and low rainwater use efficiency. Rainfed agriculture productivity is even crucial for food security and economy of Karnataka as it has the second largest rainfed area in India.
