Conclusion The rice productivity in OFR increased by one and half times to that without OFR. Rice yield in OFR supported area during drought year was equivalent to those obtained in normal rainfall years. The income from OFR based farming was 2.1 times higher than without OFR. The innovative technique of constructing temporary check dams increases the area under double crop, in the surrounding area of rivulets and rivers. Stylo scabra and Anjan was found suitable for Entisols under rainfed condition (biomass productivity: Stylo-25.75 q/ha, Anjan-12.43q/ha). The tree species namely Emblica officinalis, Albizia lebbeck, Dalberzia sissoo and the Stylo scabra as intercrop performed well in comparison to others. Share of runoff (24.1%) from plantations + grasses/crops + conservation measures as compared to barren land (37.1%) signifies their role in in-situ moisture conservation, necessary for biomass production. The staggered trenches were found effective in trapping sediments and supplying moisture to young plantations. Vegetables and fish rearing were found remunerative. Grasses were cut by local villagers and used for animals. The silvipasture treated land progressively improved the soil health. Tree plantation in wastelands can be made economically attractive and socially acceptable by intercropping of legumes, grasses, fodder and vegetables with fish in ponds. In order to promote vegetables, micro irrigation can be used.
