This study relates to the dry tropical regions of India. These regions, which are composed of 151 arid and semi-arid tropical districts with limited possibility of irrigation, constitute 53% of India’s total geographical area. Around 30% of India’s rural population live in these areas, which have over 55% of the cropped area and 74% of the area of coarse grains in India. The bulk of the nationally (as distinct from regionally) important crops, such as pulses, oilseeds, and fiber (e.g., cotton) crops, are produced here.
