Management of rain water is the key to success in dryland agriculture as most of the cultivated areas in India as well as in the entire world depends on rainfed farming. An integrated approach for the management of rain water consists of increasing moisture storage in the soil, optimum use of this moisture through efficient cropping systems, harvesting a portion of the runoff water for "life saving" irrigation, and reorientating the concepts and organization of irrigation, including that from tanks, to enhance productivity per unit of rain water.
