Village Pond, Check Dam, Boribandh dams (sand bag dams)
 
The success key point in Agriculture is increased access to water. Gujarat has created history in water conservation, by launching a drive for blue revolution, constructing number of check-dams. Gujarat is a drought-prone state, with an irrigation cover of just 36% of gross cropped area. Increased water supply from Sardar Sarovar project, higher investments in check-dams and watersheds (as of June 2007, a total of 2, 97,527 check dams, boribunds and Khet Talavadi (farm ponds) had been constructed by the state in cooperation with NGOs and the private sector). Good rainfall for the past few years has helped propel growth.
