  7. 7. SAIN Case India Moga   Moga is a major fresh milk collection district (85’000 farmers, >1 million lt milk/day)   Groundwater is the major source of irrigation and is overexploited everywhere (1 million tubewells in Indian Punjab; >60’000 tubewells in the Moga District alone)   Almost 90% land is cultivated; all cultivated land is irrigated (97.6% with groundwater)   Milk, wheat and rice is the favoured production system of 80% of the Moga farmers   Recommended intensification of dairy farming   But sustainability of fresh milk production is about...rice   Better irrigation and cultivation practices for rice   SRI trials in Punjab
  8. 8. SAIN Case Vietnam Dak Lak   Coffee farming booming in Central highlands   Very productive but... with unsustainable practices   Need for improvement of water use efficiency and fertilizers management   Water footprint project with SDC, IWMI and EDE 2011/2013   Confirmed that potential water savings are huge   Demo plots within “4C” Units   Dissemination of BPs and scale up within the Vietnam Coffee Task Force
