100 views

Published on

Positively impact at least 12 target villages around Charminar and Crown Breweries with a total population of approx. 30,000. Develop around watershed replenishment structures which will include projects ranging from on-farm ponds to check dams. Promote Water, soil resource conservation and management to promote climate smart sustainable agriculture.

ABInBev-ICRISAT Watershed Project: Improving Agricultural Productivity and Livelihoods Through Holistic and Sustainable Resource Management

  1. 1. ABInBev-ICRISAT Watershed Project: Improving Agricultural Productivity and Livelihoods Through Holistic and Sustainable Resource Management Girish Chander/Sreenath Dixit/Ashwin Kak/Inesh Singh & Team ICRISAT/ABInBev 06 December 2019
  2. 2. ABInBev Sustainability Goals
  3. 3. ABInBev-ICRISAT Partnership (till date)  Total structures developed : ~450  Total water recharge capacity : ~90,000 KL  Total water recharged : Approx. 200,000 KL per year Structures developed include: Check dams (15), LBS (300), Rock-filled dams (78), Percolation tanks (29), Run-off disposal (21), Well recharge (12) Additional work: Waste land development (45,000 plants), Composting pits (11)
  4. 4. ABInBev-ICRISAT Partnership (till date) RO Water dispenser for quality drinking water  To address the issue of safe drinking water, reverse osmosis (RO) plants were established in Shivampet and Sulthanpur villages.  April 2018 – March 2019: more than 21500 cans of water provided  A new transformer established during Nov 2019 for Sulthanpur plant to address low/fluctuating voltage issue – plant running efficiently through village Garm Panchayat now
  5. 5. ABInBev-ICRISAT Partnership (till date)  Spent malt scaling-up activity strengthened during 07 Dec 2011 to March 2019 and resulted in increase in family net income between Rs 1000-Rs 10000 pm  Spent-malt scaling-up in following villages- Fasalwadi, Kothapally, Bhanoor, Kyasaram, Gollapally and Malkapur  Impact – >9500 tons of spent malt distributed positively impacting around 300 households Provision of spent malt to households
  6. 6. ABInBev-ICRISAT Partnership (till date)  Demos on replenishment of deficient S, B and Zn under the balanced nutrient management: Crop yield increase of 10-50% in chickpea, cotton, paddy, sugarcane  Produce quality improvement: Total soluble sugars increased by 13% in sugarcane  Benefit to cost ratios: 3 to 11  Soil test-based balanced nutrition proved to be economically remunerative Published in Communications in Soil Science and Plant Analysis 2014. 45:2515– 2528 Crop productivity enhancement
