Examine the problems that have emerged in the ‘Indira Gandhi Canal Command Area’.
The ‘Indira Gandhi Canal Command Area’ has used the methods of intensive irrigation and excessive use of water in the crop fields to improve the condition of agriculture in various areas of Rajasthan. But this has led mainly to two major problems, which are waterlogging and soil salinity.
