Abstract:
The present study showed that barren land has increased by 16.50% to 27.5% in last 15 years. Land use pattern includes cultivation of Horticulture crops like Mango, Sapota Coconut and Banana whereas Agriculture crops include paddy and sugarcane cultivation. As the micro watershed is adjacent to Navsari city, it has units of dairy farming. Agri – Horti – Forestry model is also observed in the area, the residents are among medium to low income group. There are few houses of NRI’s in the micro watershed. It was also seen that existing ponds need to be cleaned and desilted at regular intervals otherwise; colonizers may occupy these water bodies and build concrete houses and roads thus preventing essentially ground water recharge.
