Contingency Plan/Best bet Practice Implemented (Improved cultivar + proper drainage + earthling up) : As a contingency measure, the excess water was drained out followed by earthling up in maize  which facilitated better performance of maize crop  resulting in  increased  yield up to 22.7 % and  RWUE up to 2.15 kg/ha-mm compared to no draining excess water and no earthling up.
