dc.description.abstract "This paper discusses the positive effects of some traditional irrigation and water harvesting systems of India towards salinity control. Some of these , like the khadin of western India are still surviving. Currently some studies are available which describe how the system survived for hundreds of years in spite of being located in a highly salinity prune tract. Other traditional system like in north India, have been replaced by modern techniques. In their case it is only possible to document the past conflict between farmers and irrigation agencies on this issue and also that certain recent recommendations for salinity control establish the correctness of the old approach. Important lessons may be learnt from studying these traditional systems." en_US
