Enhancing production of the rainfed belt has become all the more important since the growth rates of production in irrigated regions have decreased in the last decade in association with a fatigue of the green revolution. It is necessary to harness the recent advances in atmospheric and agricultural science to identify farmer-acceptable strategies for maximizing production of rainfed regions in the face of rainfall variability, We present an approach to this problem which involves efforts from an indisciplinary team with scientists and farmers.
