Abstract

Three basic aspects of drought environmental, ecological and socio-economic nature in rural areas of Bhiwani District of Haryana (India) have been presented here. Aridity is the main cause of drought consistence. Drought has been quantified based on the different perception of local people, migration of local people and increase of small land holdings with rise of population levels. Remedial measures have been suggested to combat this drought situation for the benefit of farmers.
