>sowing of fast growing multipurpose trees, shrubs and grasses 
>simultaneously. To overcome the shortage of water, rain water 
>harvesting techniques were implied to ensure maximum availability 
>of water for plant growth. The activity was carried out with full
>participation of civil society organizations and farmers associations.
>The results after two years showed a profuse plant growth in terms of
>grasses and shrubs that were being utilized by the owning farmers for
>fodder and fuel wood purposes. The tree seedlings were not yet of the 
>productive age as they required 4-6 years to reach harvestable size. 
>Due to maximum moisture conservation by the water harvesting 
>techniques, profuse growth of natural grasses was achieved. 
>The activity also resulted in recharge of ground water table by 
>retaining water and increasing rate of infiltration.
>This contributed to the rejuvenation of downstream springs and wells.
