Abstract

Farm ponds have been built all over the world to encourage agricultural expansion. Natural-based solutions are increasingly being recognized as a viable option for addressing water-related issues. This is the first study to look at how ponds influence the adoption of water-saving irrigation practices. Sustainable rural development and the management of other small, scattered wetlands can benefit from the conservation advice and analytical methodology. The current study examines agricultural improvement in Nivadunge village using farm ponds. The evolution of agriculture was tracked using a variable parametric method. This village is situated in a drought-prone region. The depth of black cotton and red soil is shallower than that of other soils. There are gravel and sandy soil types, and they store water to a lower extent. This type of research can help villages grow their agriculture in a holistic way.
