Raju and Shalini Titus have been engaged in no-till farming for over 23 years. Contrary to pop wisdom, their net income has gone up because of increased yields and a reduction in input costs.

It all started in the eighties when Friends Rural Centre, a group of Gandhian Quakers in Rasuliya village, near Hoshanagabad, Madhya Pradesh came in contact with Masanobu Fukuoka. Fukuoka was a Japanese man who had authored the book 'The One-Straw Revolution' and who was promoting  natural farming. The book's basic premise is to inspire people to be with nature and not master it.

Residents of a nondescript village in Madhya Pradesh lost their livelihoods to sand mining but this illegal trade didn't make the limelight until an IAS officer was suspended in UP.

Pahanbarri was a small village of 3000 people in Madhya Pradesh's Hoshangabad district. The 200-year old village was known for its fertile soil, thanks to being located on the banks of the Tawa, a tributary of the Narmada river. On August 1 this year, the river changed its course, broke its bank and entered the village. A thick layer of sand, up to four feet in height, now covers the thriving paddy and vegetables sown in 500 acres of its agricultural land about three months back.

It adopts rule-curve based policy for conservation regulation of the dam developed for three levels viz. upper rule level, middle rule level (critical for irrigation) and lower rule level (critical for water supply and upstream use). The generated simulation model developed by the Water Resources System Group at the National Institute of Hydrology is used to simulate the system operation and to refine the rule curves.
