dc.description.abstract "Currently, over 80% of irrigated agriculture in India is supported by groundwater. India has 23 million pumps with almost a million added every year. With little control on groundwater extraction, the country faces serious groundwater depletion. Food grain production has increased as more land is brought under cultivation. High-yielding crop varieties are grown that also have high water requirements, which are being met through a boom in groundwater use." en_US
