Genesis

The Green Revolution in mid-sixties, though a boon to Indian agriculture, ushered in era of wide

disparity between productivity of irrigated and rainfed agriculture. Alarmed by such a situation,

during Fourth Plan (1969-74), the emphasize was to focus attention on hither to neglected farmers

of the dryland regions to participate meaningfully in the agricultural development process. This socio

-economic imbalance led to a serious rethinking and a comprehensive network research program was

initiated to stabilize the performance of the then introduced hybrids of coarse cereals in rainfed region

and to moderate the periodic drought related adverse impact on total agricultural productivity. Further,

droughts of mid-sixties catalyzed the Govt. to invest on dryland research significantly. In1970 the ICAR

launched All India Coordinated Research Project for Dryland Agriculture (AICRPDA) at Hyderabad, in

collaboration with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) with 23 centres and

Co-coordinating Cell at Hyderabad.
